    Monthly Shooting Assignment - March and April 2014 - SALT

    I am honored to have prevailed as the winner of the Jan/Feb assignment, especially with such other fine contributions. I enjoyed many of them, particularly the very creative efforts with home built cameras.

    As a theme for the next two months, I bring a topic that is different and extremely wide open for interpretation. I want you to discuss 'Salt' with your photographs. As you know, historically salt has paid a tremendous significance to the culture of humans, surviving even. Politics, history, spice, preserving, cooking, health issues, etc etc etc.
    It has long been a very important ingredient to lead life, a much discussed one, and you can come at the subject matter from any way it feels meaningful to you.

    I hope this is a both challenging and inspiring topic, and maybe advantageous to those who live in an area where it's extracted, packaged, resold, etc, but such is life - unfair and capricious.

    Good luck, and feel free to flog me with a dull spoon if you feel the topic is completely out of whack.

    Here is a link to the shooting guidelines.

    Thomas, I think the subject is both unique and challenging! My brain is already busy conjuring up ways to utilize salt in images! Prolly won't have to go too far out my kitchen for this one! LOL

    Or France, or Sicily, or... Perhaps you have a desalination plant near you, for drinking water?

    Thomas must have his mind on salt when he tries to navigate our ice covered streets.

    There's yet another angle of salt I had not considered...

    Nope, it's either re-used from already used water, or from reservoirs, but I'm not worried I just think that city of salt in a cave is neat

    Gold star for posting early. Is this a new shot, or from the archives? Gold star removed if it's from the archives...
