Thematic Photographic 54 - Green

Veined
London, ON
March 2009


Welcome to a new week of Thematic Photographic. I've chosen "green" as our latest theme because it's a color that seems to carry additional meaning for many of us.

Although it's de rigeur these days to associate green with eco friendliness, its beyond-color meaning has been around since long before recycling boxes started popping up on garbage day. For some of us, it's a walk we took with our grandparents through the woods when we were kids, holding on to their hands tightly to avoid tripping over unseen roots in the dimly lit path. For others, it's what we painted the nursery before we knew whether it was a boy or a girl.

And sometimes it's both.

Your turn: Please share a green-themed photo by posting it to your blog and sharing the link in a comment. For more background on how Thematic Photographic works, read on:
  • Every Wednesday evening, at precisely 7 o'clock Eastern, I post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
  • Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...green!
  • You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  • You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
  • If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry. Old or new, all photos are welcome.
  • You may post as many photos or links as you wish. For the next week, I'll be supporting this theme with a related picture/posting each day. I encourage you to do the same. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
  • Please share this link with friends, too, and encourage them to join in. The more, the merrier.
  • And please accept my thanks for your enthusiasm. Your participation has made TP a true highlight for me each and every week.

Green is cool, wet, quiet, still, peaceful, calm... green is solitude, where a lombardy poplar becomes a cocoon to surround yourself with an imaginary life... my green is here.

Seems we had similar thoughts again. This could take all kinds of directions... it'll be interesting to see them.

Thematic Photographic 54: "Green" v.1.0

I was driving down a back road surrounded by forest and fields. I noticed that everything was green , but also noticed how many shades and colours of green there are in a stand of trees.
Next time you're out and about, (Notice,you silly Yankees, I didn't say oot and oboot.) take the time to notice all the different greens masquerading as one block of colour.

Hi Carmi!

So many shades of green are in a forest. I enjoy the smell, the sound of the leaves and the textures of bark. Green is a lovely color for you to pick as our subject to photograph this week. Here is my submission: http://lightandvoices.blogspot.com/2009/06/thematic-photographic-54-green.html

I had a hard time deciding, but finally chose to post a rather odd green item - check it out and let me know if you know anything about these.

I realize this week that green isn't my favorite color to photograph, but I have put a few more photos up.

Nikki-ann said...

Not the shot I thought I'd be posting... but I thought I'd post something other than the green green grass of Wales! - http://notesoflife.co.uk/?p=299

Pagan Sphinx said...

A bit late in the game, but I've posted some green that was a part of a recent college graduation weekend: my daughter's.

I haven't had much time to get out with my camera but wanted to join in so I pulled this photo from the archives. I still think the money shot would have been more fun.

MB said...

Ooops. Looks like my link didn't work. You can see my green photo at:

Lovely leaf!

Here's my green:

Unfortunately, I did not capture GREEN about 6 weeks ago, when the leaves first unfurled and the fading light captured the bright spring greens in the mist. It was so beautifully green that it almost hurt to view it, but I couldn't tear myself away.

My last Green of the week.

Mine is here if you'd like to stop by!

bobbie said...

If the Home Schooling gal reads this - I really loved your picture, but cannot make a comment on your blog. I wonder if others had this trouble?

this one IS mine........
