Easterphotofun has been a bit of weird one this year as here in Leeds the majority of schools don’t actually take the holiday around the Easter weekend. A couple of years ago the decision was made to standardise the holiday to the first two weeks of April. For photofun this meant that this year over the Easter weekend people were tweeting me asking what we were doing and I had to explain that it wasn’t starting for another week and of course by week two this will have meant that most people who are not in Leeds will have gone back to school.
However the photofun themes have been designed to fit around our holidays in Leeds so although it’s a bit odd for others it’s what works for us. Of course the result has meant not as many people taking part, either that or people are bored with it ? However I still enjoyed the interpretations during week one for Square. We’ve done quite a few shape themes and I always like them, they are so open to interpretation and I find that when you look around the world is very simply made up of shapes so they are everywhere.
As always there were some lovely interpretations and I am always fascinated to get a glimpse of how other people see things. I particularly liked the photo at the top that used squares to make a circle, I like how it messes with my mind a little bit as it’s the circle that is the first thing I see not the squares. Nice. As always thanks to contributing, it’s a real pleasure to have your interpretations drop into the timeline and show them to the kids who set the theme. It’s a nice social connection.
