A picture is worth a thousand words… or at least a poem’s worth

Over on Google+ there’s a photo project going on called GOOGLE + :: Project 52 :: 2012 wherein photographers (amateur or professional) submit a photo every week according to a provided theme. I’m not much of a photographer, but I thought it would be nice to have something similar for writing so my mother and I decided to join forces: she’d take the photos and I would write something to go with them. I’m sure most of the accompaniment will end up being poetry but then again, maybe not. It should be fun.

The entries are due on Google+ each week by 20:00 PST so I’ll try to have our entries posted here by the following Tuesday (and the first one was due yesterday so I plan to have it up later tonight). I highly recommend following the contest if you’re interested in photography the first round of submissions is impressive. Also, the contest name is a bit of a mouthful and more than I care to type, so I’m going to shorten it to “GP52” going forward.
