Photos: Changing Seasons

Assignment #19: Changing Seasons

The goal for this assignment was to take a picture of anything in NATURE that represents a change in seasons — like autumn leaves, snow, or new flowers (if you’re in Australia).

Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures, this post is now closed to new submissions.

Manda (day 180): “A tree at the airport as I was leaving to go to a conference. Another sober first – no more trying to find the nearest place to buy wine so I could drink in my hotel room every evening. It’s very freeing and feels much better not to be hungover while pretending to be normal. Now I can just be normal!”

Feeling: “At the moment I decided to really quit and become clear, I immediately also knew: I will not dye my hair again. This picture shows how far I got. And I’m letting the grey grow, just like this as a statement and reminder. I am 44 but I am getting a lot of compliments, to my surprise. This is not so much a seasonal change as wel the change of the season.”



I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

    • hi you 🙂 if you follow the blog, i put up a notice about the next theme and then you’ve got about a week to submit your photo. you’ve just gotta lurk here more often! hugs from me

  • Nice gallery of autumn pics, Belle. I’m enjoying doing my 100 days if thumbs up too. Smartphones are so easy to carry with you and then use as a camera.

  • Fantastic photos! I love so many of them.
    Early night, the Pug, the colorful leaves, beautiful countryscapes. Great job everyone.
    Of course the balls to stop coloring your hair! Wow, I wish I could do it . . .courage. Best courage I have at the moment, is agreeing to tough it out on a very cold day for New Orleans. I beat Wolfie over the head with a mitten and I just committed to going on a walk after work with a friend despite the crappy temps (Wolfie says drink wine, stay in, hide, drink do laundry – I say go with your friend, she is helping you, do the tough thing, you’ll be waaaay happier, stonger and you’ll be in park not staring out at the park).

  • Lovely and uplifting – seeing everyone’s different interpretations helps me see this whole sober adventure in new lights too – lots of angles to remind me of the multiple reasons to give it (and me) my best.

  • This was such a great idea, Belle! I love taking pictures. I am just using my cell phone camera, and now on my walks, I have so much fun! Thank you! Beautiful pictures by beautiful people!!
