J'aimerais inonder [email protected] de granbyennes et de granbyens.

Je vous lance le défi, photographiez
votre voisine en train d'étendre son linge,
votre voisin qui joue dans ses plates-bandes,
un confrère ou des consœurs de travail,
votre boss,
votre curé,
votre garagiste,
votre petite-fille en spectacle,
le maire,
les enfants de votre quartier en train de jouer,
votre Dame Avon,
la fille de votre voisin,
votre secrétaire en train de se faire les ongles,
le livreur de poulet et sa Smart,
votre groupe de bowling,
votre tante qui joue au bingo,
votre grand-père...


Préparez votre image, imaginez-la,
racontez une histoire,
racontez un beau moment dans la vie
de votre granbyenne ou de votre granbyen.

Étonnez-moi, étonnez-vous, étonnez-nous !
( après leur avoir fait signer cette autorisation de publication )


Go !
Granby, c'est surtout les granbyennes et les granbyens.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

I guess a fast lens is no prerequisite for this one. It's a really detailed and very nice photo of Mr. Snail.

7 May 2008 7:41pm

@Viewfinder: Actually you need a very slow lens.... :-) Thanks for your comment,

danthro from Suburbia, United States

'rare and slow'? i suppose that's true too. but i think the first words i thought of were something more along the lines of 'sticky and gross'. cool capture of it though

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

Nicey done

8 May 2008 1:10am

He is like a beautiful tightrope walker.
The shot is terrifically composed.

A wonderful close up of this colourful little snail, Denis.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

It would have been quite SOMETHING to have the snail macro-ed! Then its perfectly designed house would have been such a wonder!
