We’re delighted that Rob Cardillo who has been a judge for Picture This last summer, is back at the helm this month for April. Although most of you already are familiar with Rob’s work, if you’re not, take the time to check out his newly redesigned website: it’s worth the time. Rob is a much sought after photographer whose work has graced too many publications to list.
Rob has chosen Green World as the theme for this month’s contest. Here’s what he has to say:
“Green is the signature color of plant life. It indicates photosynthesis, a confectionery miracle that spins sunlight into sugar to benefit the entire animal kingdom. In the garden, green is inescapable. It’s our trees and lawns and most of our herbaceous plants when they’re not in flower. But because green is so ubiquitous, it often ends up as a back drop in our pictures — a pleasant and behaved foil to the more operatic colors of the spectrum.
So in honor of St. Patrick, let’s bring green to the foreground this month. I’m looking for images where the color green steps up and takes the spotlight for a change. And let’s be ecumenical by celebrating green’s infinite range of personalities. That means we’ll include bluish, yellowish, grayish, golden and silvery greens in the mix. You can enter landscapes, flowers, foliage, bark, buds, berries, fruits and even green roots if you got ‘em.”
