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
2. a narrow walk or way: a path through a garden; a bicycle
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).
