COTW - School (ends 098/02)

Congrats to Amy (Amy_&_Eva) for winning the 'Summertime' COTW! As winner, Amy gets to select our next topic and she has chosen "School" for our assignment.

As always, have fun with it!

I know in some places school begins this week, but school doesn't even begin here until September 4th. Any chance of extending this one or something? (I guess I can do school supply shots or something, though I'm not sure how fun that'd be!)

If you are still on vacation is there a chance you can find a school and get some good architectural shots Tracey? Or play dress ups? It wasn't summer here for the summertime challenge so I had to get inventive. I just never ended up posting as none of them were very good Smile

My kiddos aren't even of school age Smile I'll figure something out, though!

Yeah, this is my first year with a school-aged kiddo... surreal! But I guess we'll have to be creative for now, Katie. Smile I suppose you can stage a 'school-ish' shot by having a kid walking towards a school building with a backpack on or something...

School doesn't start here until September 4th either... our schools are BORING architecturally in my city.

Sorry everyone!!! I didn't realize!!! GiGi, I could gladly choose another topic since several ladies can't do this one!

If you guys feel strongly about it, we can always change it - there are no rules here except the ones we all agree upon. Wink

Personally, I can think of so many variations on this theme that I would hope that everyone could participate, but again, if you guys want to make a change, say the word and I'll change it. No biggee! Biggrin

It's OK, GiGi, I think I can manage if others can. Sorry to make an issue of it initially, I was just so surprised to see the topic at first as school is not quite on my radar yet, but once I thought about it, I realized there's lots I can do.

I have some ideas, I hope I can find the time to do them.

I am extending this one more week so that we have time for a few more entries (plus, I am just plain swamped right now).

So get in your entries by noon (CST) Monday, Sep 3rd.

Best,
GiGi

I am hoping we get a decent day this week so I can take some shots outside. The only nice day we have had in ages I was at work!

I tried this morning, but I believe I failed. It was just not the right conditions. I am going to TRY to fix it, but IDK if it's possible...

Keep on trying! We're extending another week so that everyone has a chance!

Here's mine. Neither of mine are in school this year, so this is what Ryken and I came up with Smile

Neither of mine are in school yet...well, in daycare and do school things. Anyway, this may be a stretch, but it's something they do in school!!

I'm not happy with what I got, but I've struggled to find good light AND get my lovely cherubs to cooperate. At least I included something this time around. This is the side gate of a school near us. Not the main gates so not well maintained.
