Weekly Photo Challenge: Green


My first thoughts are of Spring, and new growth. But with Winter rapidly approaching, and the snow that will hopefully come with it, the vibrancy of Spring green is a long way off.

However, several of the images below were captured in the dead of winter.

For those of you thinking “I’d like to create amazing photographs but I don’t have a big fancy DSLR.” Take a close look at the image of my friend Melissa sprawled out on the ice. That’s a Canon G11 in her outstretched hands. Now take a look at the images she makes with it, here. I often envy her ability to put all her gear in her pocket when we get together to shoot.


Kiss Me I’m Irish, It’s Give-Away Time!

That’s right, another give-away!

In celebration of my daughters 7th birthday on St. Patrick’s Day, and the Irish heritage on my side of the family, I’m giving away something green! Something oh so very green!

How about an 8×12, on metallic paper, matted in white, ready to frame, print of “Wavy Green” to hang on your wall?

“The hell you say? What must a person do to get in on a sweet deal like this?”  you might ask.  Just scroll on down below the image and all your questions will be answered as if by magic!

The Rules and How To Enter.

It’s simple. I’ll be posting the give-away on the Jeff Sinon Photography fan page, and there are only two requirements to enter.

1) You have to be a fan of Jeff Sinon Photography (having clicked “Like,” and I will be checking ;-)) You must become a fan as a real live person, not as your fan page should you have one, to qualify.

2) Once you have become a fan of Jeff Sinon Photography, click “Like” on the Give-Away post as well. That’s it!

(since this blog will get published to the fan page wall as well, anyone who accidentally “Likes” the blog post on the fan page will be included in the contest, but you will make my life a lot easier, and reduce the chance your name will be missed,  if you “like” in the correct post. Thanks in advance)

CAUTION: Shameless Self Promotion Alert!   As a bonus, anyone who shares the contest on their Facebook wall will have their name entered a second time.

On Sunday, March 18th I will deploy my very sophisticated random drawing system (your name on a piece of paper, placed in a box, my daughter picking a piece of paper) and announce the lucky winner. The winner will be announced on the Jeff Sinon Photography fan page, on the Jeff Sinon Photography blog, and be contacted via Facebook message as well.

*The print will NOT have the watermark on it.*
