It’s time to get this blog rolling!
I will be featuring 4am photos on the blog, but also lots of other things themed around 4am like poems, songs, videos. If you know of anything 4am related, drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment. I would really like this site to be a collaboration, and I can’t do that without you!
So, onto our first featured photo by Pete Ashton. A very snowy 4am scene. I really like the ethereal light coming from behind the tress and to the right of the photo. The snow laden foreground is peppered with animal footprints – maybe made by foxes or cats. When you look through the boughs of the fir trees heavy with snowfall, you can see a house and can imagine it’s inhabitants fast asleep in warm beds in contrast to the cold winter scape that awaits them when they wake up.
Thank you Pete for submitting your photos of 4am. Pete wrote about his 4am photo taking experience on his blog. You can read about it here.
The 4th April at 4am is the big date we are counting down to, but you can still submit any 4am photos that you have already taken to be included in the global 4am picture. All you need is a flickr account (it’s free), and then to tag your photo with ’4amproject’. For more information on how to do this, please visit this page.
Remember you can also follow the 4amproject on twitter! @4amproject
