________________

Hi! Welcome to the Close-ups of Summer Art & Poetry Jam.

Here is a link to the Announcement Invitation

How Will it Work?
We will have multiple "Close-ups of Summer" threads being posted
spontaneously & collaboratively.

You can start a thread by posting a close-up photo of someone
or something that represents this summer to you.

Examples – These are just ideas.

1- A close-up photo of yourself on vacation falling off the boat.
2- A close-up photo of your spouse or children looking
jaw-dropped at the sky to see the summer stars.
3- A close-up photo of a beach ball or any object that reminds you of summer.
4- A close-up photo of the girl on the boardwalk on rollerblades.
5- A close-up photo of the street musician at that little cafe where you hung out.

Others will view your photo, get inspired and WRITE A POEM or
DRAW, PAINT, CARTOON, their representation of your image,
then save, scan or take a photo of their work and post their
artistic interpretations to the thread.

In response to the images others post, you, as the interpretive artist or poet,
can WRITE A POEM inspired by the photo or DRAW, PAINT, or CARTOON
your interpretation of the initial post and either take a photo of it or
scan it and post your rendition!

Please Note
Your images must be stored somewhere on the web where a URL can
be referenced in your post. If you do not currently have image storage space,
try http://photobucket.com. You must own the images you post.
Please use the IMG code to reference your image.
Hit the IMG button 2x and paste the URL of your
image between the tags.
________

Remember - Each thread should start with a photograph depicting summer.

Have fun!

I noticed that the written word could be used to respond to photos presented...yet it's also supposed to be a photo? Explain? :?

Yes, you can reply with a poem if you want.

I'm not sure what you're asking me to explain. Hmmm.

Each thread will lead with a photo.

People can either respond with a poem or a piece of artwork inspired by the image.

Is that more clear?

You made it sound like something more had to be done to what was already created in response to a photo. Maybe I'm just reading it wrong? :?

Sorry I guess I'm not a very good writer sometimes.

I was talking about the images. The operative word was OR.

"WRITE a POEM OR DRAW, PAINT, CARTOON"

If you create a piece of artwork inspired by the original photo in the thread, you need to either take a photo of it or scan it into your computer, then save it to your photobucket or flickr account (or wherever you have your images stored on the internet), in order to have a URL for the image to post here.

Obviously if you write a poem, you don't need to do any of that as you can just type the text into the posting window.

Sorry for the confusion, Jacob. I hope you will participate! Enjoy!
