Show & Tell: Turn, Turn, Turn

by Lori Lavender Luz on July 8, 2009

in Denver,Show & Tell

This post has been 9 months in the making. (And it has nothing to do with gestation.)

I got the idea nearly a year ago to take a photo at the same place at roughly the same time of day on each solstice and equinox for a year. I was able to complete the series last month.

Fall

Winter

Spring

Summer

See what my classmates are showing and telling at Mel’s Show & Tell. And show something yourself!

I love this! I might just borrow this idea, though my view would look VERY different than yours!

What a great idea! Very cool! Colorado is so beautiful. My cousin lives in Denver and my Aunt and Uncle live in Durango. It is just so gorgeous all the time!

I don’t think that’d work so well in my neck of the woods:
Fall: palm trees in sunshine, 72 degrees
Winter: palm trees in sunshine, 70 degrees
Spring: recently trimmed palm trees in sunshine, 72 degrees
Summer: palm trees in sunshine, 74 degrees.

I miss seasons.

That was such a great idea. Very creative…I love it!

I bet it took patience (to wait for all four “turns”) and a good memory to get all four photos. Good for you!

I wanted to do this with an amzing tree in a favourite garden where i used to live. But then I loved. :( What a lovely series! I bet you were just itching to see the finished set!

You are so freakin’ cool and you always have the best ideas (I am still jealous of your journals). Now I want to do this. I need to think of the perfect place to photograph.

I have something similar on my old blog, but it is just summer and winter. Never thought to do all 4 seasons! Love the idea and the pictures.

Oh Yeah Girl! Now you’ve got me thinking! I can see thick solid wooden frames around each picture on my “Olive Garden” red wall!!!

Wonderful idea and excellent photographs! There was a movie once where this photographer took a picture of the same street corner every day for years and years. Very cool.
