So, I want to do one of those things I've seen buzzing around deviantArt. One of those "100 images in 1 year" deals. Instead of opening this up only to my dA friends, I want to open it up to all of ES.

Any suggestions are welcome, I'm open to any advice. I'm not promising I'll pick the suggestions if they're outside of my financial or physical limitations, but I'll certainly try and find something close! And yeah, any advice/input/additions are very welcome.

Fire away. :)

The List!
"Project: One Hundred Thoughts from Earthsong" (working title)
01) Something normally in color in Black & White
02) Something normally in B&W in Color
03) Something about Everyday Life
04) Dual Statement - Stage Manager (Instructor, Teacher, Manipulator?)
05) Animal(s)
06) Food Art
07) Contrast (Tall + Small sort of thing)
08) Isolation (Solitude, even in many nearby objects)
09) Literal Cliche - "Nose to the Grindstone"
10) Literal Cliche - "Working Fingers to the Bone"
11) Literal Cliche - "Green Thumb"
12) Elapsed Time / Growth
13) Picture of two photographers photographing each other
14) Hand Panel - "Hope"
15) Hand Panel - "Waiting"
16) Hand Panel - "Unity"
17) Blurred focus (Blurred picture of glasses?)
18) Infinite Reflection (Mirror + Mirror)
19) Unusual Angle - Looking up from the Floor
20) Unusual Angle - Tilted
21) Unusual Angle - From Above & Behind (Guardian Angel?)
22) MACRO - Arachnid
23) MACRO - Insect
24) MACRO - Avian
25) MACRO - Mammal
26) MACRO - Gooey Crawlers (Snails?)
27) Still Life - Sepia Tone (Laughter)
28) Still Life - Sepia Tone (Emotive)
29) Dual Meaning - Medication (Relief, Regret, Renewal, Finality?)
30) "Under a Sea of Knowledge" Photo Shoot

Oh, for photos, you mean?

Black and white shots of normally colorful things.

Same goes for sepia-tone.


I love photos like that, and I'd love to see what you come up with!

What are some things normally done in Black & White? O_o

I don't do much (Okay, any) B&W photography, so I don't have any idea.

Interestingly enough, I was planning on someday doing an entire series in B&W. The reason for this is, I have a completely colorblind friend. She sees in shades of gray. She's a dear friend of mine, and so after talking to her one day I told her I would someday do a series all in B&W and name it after her.

Bit of trivia, useless as it may be. Razz

I was just poking fun at AsA for saying "normally colorful things". Everything is colorful! It's not like there are many back and white objects lying around... And yes, I know what she meant, but it's funny wording.

Oh, you thought I was being helpful? Silly man.

I meant field of flowers, a Picasso painting, a rainbow. Not just your basic green grass and blue sky; something zany colorful!

Yes, tamir, I can read. I decided to explain anyway.

It is on-topic!

Take a picture of a college student drowning in textbooks. I'll volunteer to be your model...

@AsA: Isn't getting a picture of you, like, mystically and physically impossible? Otherwise though, I doubt you're that far from me. I think the one time my gmail actually talked nicely to Facebook, it said you weren't that far at all.

Though that's probably one of those "not serious" offers, which is more like an "I'm drowning in textbooks and want to make a cute quip about it" statement... in which case now I look silly! ^^;

Though I like the idea. I may hunt some volunteers out around here, if need be. And yes Spegg, I have your ideas. You've given me many ideas, in fact! Many good ideas that I intend to act upon, once I purchase a new battery for my camera. Mad

I should make mention that I'm very grateful for the help everyone has provided. I'm normally not much for ideas, I tend to just take my camera with me and take pictures of pretty things that strike my fancy. This is one of those "Find something to do, make a list, and set forth doing it" ideas. Mad

Also something you can do, is take pictures of literal cliches. You know, "nose to the grindstone", "green thumb", "Too Blave", things like that. Nearly limitless supply there!


It was one of those semi-serious offers, that was made as a joke but if taken seriously, I meant it seriously too. Know what I mean?

And that whole Gmail-Facebook thing? Completely and utterly creepy. How would you get info like that, eh? I don't think I ever gave you my real name!
