To all Passionate Photographers members.

Have you ever watched the Palm trees flowering process. If not, watch them from now on. The trees are getting read to flower.

It will be a good observation cum photography experience if you track it.

A display of this wonderful event and the result of your efforts submitted to Passionate Photographers group is planned with selected photos from members in the beginning of 2014 – when this seasonal cycle gets completed with the dates ripe, mature and fall down announcing the arrival of christmas and another year end.

You are welcome to post a maximum of 16 photos, i.e. 1 photo per week for the next 4 months on the subject. 16 photos selected by each member / each month , ie September, October, November December clicks will be exhibited.

Please note to observe the time and date you click along with the GPS location of your object, for jury to identify it before the exhibition.

Original high resolution files will be required to be submitted at a later stage with full information of the photo and photographer. Files should not be modified or altered with.

For those parents with children interested or not interested in Photography, this will be a very good exercise to have them observe the nature, the seasonal changes and to observe and realise how nature announces the arrival of the seasons in its own way. Since it is spread out during a period of four months, it will be also a test to find out how patient you are towards your short term and long term objectives.

Thus, to create interactive interest among parents/children/teachers, photos of participating children below age 16 will be separately displayed and appreciated.

Those children who are participating in this event are also welcome to write a short story – not less than 300 words – on their experience of capturing the season that passed by while photographing for this event.

Please share it with your friends and family who may be interested.

Please do not hesitate to contact me in case you have any further clarifications.

Welcome to participate and Best wishes in advance,

Ramesh Menon, Abu Dhabi
