This week in Blipfoto - A moment in time
7th September 2012
After an endless summer of adventure, the kids are now all back at school, many for their first day.
The first day at school is a freeze frame in time that means so much. A timeless moment that everyone remembers. It's a moment that Blip was perhaps made to record.
So, over the past few weeks we've started a collection of some of your photos that we thought perfectly captured the trepidation, the excitement, the anxiety and opportunity of the first day at school.
We hope you enjoy it. And we're bound to have missed some, so feel free to suggest others below in the comments section...
Hands-on camera review: Nikon D4
Bored of the usual techie camera reviews? Well, try this write-up of the Nikon D4 by Blipper Max Ellis.
We've been offering you the chance to review some top of the range camera equipment for the Blip Blog... And you don't get much fancier than the D4. At almost five grand for the body alone, it was going to have to perform well to impress illustrator and photographer Max Ellis...
Remember this week's Photo of the Week challenge with Calumet is "Close-Up". So make sure you have your entries in before Monday... Oh, and a wee heads up - don't tell anyone, but together with Calumet and Canon, we have a great 'experience' prize to give away next week. Keep checking back for more details.
It's always best to start how you mean to continue. And journeys shouldn't just be about getting to your destination. Keep it fun - just make sure the wind doesn't change.
This week in Geelong (Australia) the fashion of the moment was a plastic container. The bigger the better. You bring the container and the 7/11 filled it with slushy for $2.50... The discount store next door did a roaring trade as large plastic containers became the most sought after item in town.
Apparently all the cool kids are into a good slush puppy...
The care and attention is reflected in this delicate snapshot of a jeweler. The soft colours, vintage blouse and classic architecture combine perfectly.
In contrast is the bright colour and youthful energy captured in this photograph of a young football team getting their instructions in the warm sunlight.
