Project Color had the XplorMor Community chasing colors around the globe!
Project Color took place on the March Equinox, March 20, 2014. Participants shared photos capturing the colors of our planet on a single day as seen through their unique perspectives, and to promote getting out there and coming together to share a global experience through photography.
Map of Countries Represented by Participants:
The project took place on the March Equinox, March 20, 2014, with participants capturing the colors of our world on a single day. On this day the length of the sun’s appearance is the same at all points on the Earth. The sun gives us light. Light gives us color. Hence, a great day for color photography.
The goal was to capture colors seen through each person’s perspective and creativity, and to promote getting out there and sharing the experience through photography.
The reason to participate was to have fun, and to come together as a community through a shared experience: to share our photographic vision, innovation and a moment of our day. The photos also allowed us to see and appreciate other parts of the world, other cultures and other peoples.
Project Color showed us how unique we are as individuals but how similar we are as a people. It melted differences and formed new bonds of understanding and friendship and joy. Thank you.
Information about Project Color
Project Color aims for participants to capture the colors of our world on a single day, the March Equinox, when the days grow longer in the Northern Hemisphere and shorter in the Southern Hemisphere. On this day the length of the sun’s appearance is the same at all points on the Earth. The sun gives us light. Light gives us color. Hence, a great day for color photography.
The goal is to capture colors around the planet on a single day as seen through each person’s perspective, and to promote getting out there and sharing the experience through photography. A color photo could show the rosy blossoming Spring or the orange glowing Autumn, the colors of your country, your city or town, your home or even yourself. From sunrise to sunset, from a far off coral castle to a nearby white walled temple, from blue city buildings to green country fields, or even just your red skirt, scarf or cardigan… possibilities are endless… get as creative as you wish!
The reason for participating is to have fun. It’s about coming together as a community and sharing our vision, creativity and a moment of our day. The photos may also allow us to see other parts of the world. And, if the weather is bad add some innovation from inside your home or wherever you may be that day.
Everyone is welcome.
