Ok, in trying to be even more sensitive to the international flavor we have on MR, I am revising my thoughts for a Memorial Day assignment theme. In taking the "Day in the Life" series of photographic works to a different level. For US members it is timed for the first "official" Summer weekend. It is a time for parades, BBQs, holiday sales, pools and the beach. But it is also a time to remember those that gave their life for their country. For MR members not in the US it is/may be just another weekend. No matter, this photo thread is all about the last weekend of this month, and the parts of the world we all share in. Some MR members may chose to get together in order to share in this project. No big rules for this thread, just some easy guidelines: - Post only images taken from 12:01AM May 26 through 11:59PM May 29, 2006 (in your respective time zones). This is on the honor system - no one should be checking the time stamps on the images. - Try to post only up to 5 of your best images from that timeframe. Only true abusers will be flogged by each poster in this thread. - When posting an image, let us know if it is not open to be be critiqued. Also feel free to provide a short editorial comment about the photo. Some images are great by themselves, others need some context to be fully appreciated. - Have fun with this. We now have about 24 days to plan what we may do for this photo thread. It is my hope that some may use this thread to try to get groups together to shoot with. Also a place for people to ask questions about their thoughts on how to approach this photo task, in order get a better idea on how to get their image. Maybe even with sample images to spark the imagination. I know it is bad form to post a follow-up to ones own post. But I have a question for those that want to participate in this thread. I know that the mods can close threads; but can they reopen them? If so how would you all feel about this thread being closed for postings during the timeframe that we are supposed to be out shooting in?
