What are your favorite sounds of spring? For me, its the sound of lawnmowers. I can’t resist them. It just tells me winter is over and spring is HERE. There is a special place in my heart for these machines. For one, its how I learned how to drive. “What?” you say? Its true. My granddad’s “tractor” (riding lawnmower) was my first set of wheels and my dad’s was my second. Part of my weekly chores as a teen was to mow the lawn. “NOT TOO FAST” was the common command. “You’ll leave ruts in the yard!” (There were always ruts in the yard). When I hear lawn mowers now, I feel a sense of nostalgia but also excitement. Maybe we’ll have enough land by the time my girls are 13 and 14…maybe THEY can learn to drive on a tractor too. :)

Your assignment this week is to capture the sounds of spring. It seems strange but it will just take some creativity. I have many suggestions but I am going to withhold…I want you to think of what sounds remind YOU that its spring.

We’re going to change it up a little. I want you all to send me your photos the same way as last time… ONE per day either on the priddysweet. portraiture FB fan page, or by email to info@priddysweet.com. But the judging is going to be a little different. We will vote each day. The top 3 entries will go to the final round. The final round will be judged and the winner determined by a guest judge. The prize this week is a $15 gift card to Starbucks. Friendly reminder: please tell me in your description how your picture applies to the assignment. If it isn’t a “spring time sound” then it won’t be a valid entry. :) That goes for you too, Jeff.
