WWP March 2012 equinox event theme and shooting dates ...
- The theme for the WWP March 2012 equinox event is "Paths".
noun, plural paths [pathz, pahthz, paths, pahths].
1. a way beaten, formed, or trodden by the feet of persons or animals.
2. a narrow walk or way: a path through a garden; a bicycle path.
3. a route, course, or track along which something moves: the path of a hurricane.
Initially that may sound pretty boring but once you start to think about it as it relates to where you are on the planet all sorts of possibilities open up. Paths involves both paths of the present world (e.g., freeways, roads and sidewalks, insect/animal trails, contrails (they show the paths in the sky planes fly in), star trails, rivers, glaciers) and of the past also (e.g., where Hannibal crossed the Alps or the paths that Asians used when they migrated across Beringa and wound up populating the western hemisphere or where ships sailed from the Marquesas and later discovered Hawai'i or all roads lead to Rome or the scarring left in cliffs by glaciers as they moved towards the sea or an old lava flow). There are paths all around you if you just have the eyes to see them.
Show us some.
The official shooting period starts Thursday night/Friday morning March 16th at 00:00 (technically 00:00:01 since there is no 00:00) and ends Sunday night March 25th at 24:00. The open editing period also starts at the same time and ends Saturday night March 31st at 24:00. All times are local to where you are when you shoot it and where you are when you edit it (if you happen to be traveling across time zones).
