This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Happy 10 Years.” From this week’s instructions:
As you all know, we are celebrating our 10th year as a group on Flickr. For next Monday’s theme I think we need to honor Macro Mondays with a thousand photos celebrating our 10th Year. Your photo must be a macro, of course, and should relate to the celebratory nature of this incredible milestone. Confetti, candles, cake, sparklers, champagne, balloons–whatever it takes to make it look like we are having a PARTY! A BIG party!! I know you will all create amazing images that will announce to the Flickrverse just how excited we are to turn “double digits.” No promises…but it is entirely possible we will have some very cool publicity about this event. Fingers crossed it will happen. So start the hoopla! Let’s celebrate, drink a toast to MM and then celebrate some more! Show us your finest celebration/party shot for our 10th birthday/anniversary.
Happy 10 Years!
Happy 10 Year Anniversary to Macro Monday! Even though I’m new to the group, I have felt very welcomed. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, I wanted to shoot glitter. Nothing says party like glitter! Back when I was a child, my grandmother used to adorn her Christmas gifts with glitter. She would meticulously outline Santas, sleigh bells, and gingerbread men with Elmer’s glue, then carefully coat the glue with glitter. Once it had dried, she would shake off the excess and start on another part of the paper. The wrapping itself was a gift! My mother continued the tradition for a long while, and I did for a short while too… this is something I will definitely need to teach my children so that my grandmother’s legacy lives on. All that glitters is beautiful and should be celebrated.
