February Words of the Month

January 31st, 2019

Welcome to the February Word of the Month. February has traditionally been the Flash of Red challenge month hosted by Ann Lefevre @olivetreeann so I did my best to complement this challenge with our words.

But while February’s words are geared to a month of black and white photography with a little pop of red on the 14th, they work just as well in colour. Please feel free to do them in colour if that is your preference. As we often say here at 365, it is your project and your rules!

This is the way Ann set up her challenge:

Feb. 1-3 Seeing the Light
Feb. 4-10 Texture and Pattern
Feb. 11-17 Same Subject (Shape, Positive and Negative Space)
Feb. 14 Optional “Flash of Red”
Feb. 18-24 Leading Lines
Feb. 25-28 Playing with Contrast

And here are the February Words:
1- Architecture
2- Dutch Tilt
3- Light / Shadow
4- Water
5- Pig (Chinese New Year)
6- Sunbeam
7- Movement
8- Landscape
9- White on white
10- Texture / pattern
11- Kiss
12- Candy
13- Heart
14- Selective colour
15- Rose(s)
16- Black on black
17- Negative space
18- Hug
19- Bowl
20- Ribbon
21- Wheel(s)
22- Tissue paper
23- Bokeh
24- Leading lines
25- Horizon
26- Frame(s)
27- Contrast
28- Ice sculpture / sculpture

For newer members, the word of the month is a great place to dip your toes into. This challenge is also a great place for older members who occasionally lose their mojo and need ideas or inspiration. It can be a great challenge for those who want to go that extra nine yards to do a full month of words. The choice is yours!

The tag for the month will continue in the same format as before, first three letters of the month, the year and then ‘words’ (feb19words).

Feel free to do one word, a few, or all of them. They can be done in any order you choose, or on the suggested day. Pop in daily, or just on occasion. This is your challenge, and your project. Until next month, enjoy!

I can't believe it's February already! I have to do this in Feb. I'm falling behind and have no motivation.

I really enjoy seeing what words are suggested and how they can relate to other challenges. Thank YOU for doing this every month!
Maybe some of these words along with the Flash of Red will get you some motivation and help you catch up!

Hmmm, today's word is sunbeam and our weather forecast includes rain, ice pellets, and freezing rain. Sunbeams may be hard to come by. LOL

We are also back to cloudy weather after having one afternoon of sun!
Sometimes I have to do a different word and then juggle the proper word somewhere else.
Life is really a pain when things don't go as planned!
