52 Week Project ::Week 4:: Your Town

January 25, 2014  •  5 Comments

I mentioned it previously, but I'll repeat it again... I'm taking part in a personal project for 2014.  I'm doing what they call a 52 week photo project.  Yes, there are 52 weeks in a year, so each week, I'll be taking and submitting a photo based on a specific theme.  I'm also part of a Blog Circle.  A group of photographers, both hobbyists and professionals, are all working on the same project and we're going to share links to each other's blogs week after week.  You'll actually be able to see ALL of our work if you follow the links from one page to the next.  So, I invite you to see Christine's blog and see how she interpreted this week's theme.  Click here for her blog!  I hope you enjoy what you see.  It's kind of fun to see how different people choose to interpret the same theme.  

This week the theme is MY TOWN.  My town.  Hmmmm…. I live on Long Island so my town is really not just a town, but the region.  I think many Long Islanders feel the same way.  I’m from Commack, live in the Town of Smithtown, in Suffolk County, on the north shore, on Long Island, in New York…. the list goes on and on.  So, could I go to Target or Home Depot and the nail salon and say this is “my town”?  Should I think about landmarks or points of interest?  Yes.  I live halfway between New York City and The Hamptons.  I have beaches both north and south of me for miles in each direction.  It’s only fitting that I showcase “my town” in this way.  So, I made a post card.  This is the Fire Island Lighthouse, on the south shore of Long Island.  Well, it’s on the barrier island just south of the south shore, if you want to be exact…. So GREETINGS FROM LONG ISLAND, MY TOWN!

I love that you included a map so we can see exactly where you're talking about. I hope to see Long Island in person someday.
