"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." -- Margaret Atwood

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain
I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers: Of April, May, of June, and July flowers. I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, wassails, wakes, Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes.
You will shoot two contact sheets based around two quotes about the spring season. In other words, pick your quotes and shoot pictures for those quotes.
I will list a few websites where you can find some quotes about spring, or you can find your own.
First, pick your two quotes.
You will have an in class shooting day on Thursday.
You will shoot pictures over spring break.
Contact sheets are due at the end of each of these days.
After break you will have class time to adjust these pictures.
Many spring quotes are directly about the seasons and nature. However, you will find many quotes that also deal with events or sports that take place during spring time like weddings, music festivals, baseball, and golf etc. You also may find quotes that talk about spring cleaning, BBQ's, family gatherings, Easter, and Mother's Day etc.
