Photohunters: Monthly

The photohunters theme this week is monthly. For this post I went into my monthly photo folders for 2009 and picked some photographs.
The shot above was take at the NC Art Museum park in Raleigh, NC in April of 2009.
Above is a screen shot of my monthly photo folders for 2009. The screenshots are hard to see at this size but I didn't realize that until they were already in a format that can't be enlarged so what you see is what you get. The next shot was in my monthly photo folder for May of 2009 and was taken in Wilmington, NC which is on the coast.
Below is a screen shot of my general 2010 photo folders which are monthly. However, within each of the monthly folders are separate folders for most days. The folders on the right of the screen shot are the daily folders for February 2010.
The next shot was in my monthly folder for July of 2009 and was taken in downtown Greensboro, NC.
In preparation for this post I selected a photo out of every one of the monthly folders for 2009 and you can see the screen shot below of what I picked.
I am not going to post all twelve of those shots because the post is getting pretty long without doing that.
I decided to pick out one photo from each town or city represented by the shots I selected from the monthly folders. The shot above was taken from the monthly folder for September 2009 and shows the entrance table at the NC Botanical garden in Chapel Hill, NC. The shot below was taken in August 2009 in the NC mountains just outside of Boone, NC.
The last shot was taken in Durham, NC in October of 2009 and I'm surprised how green it still was, at least in that part of the park. I had other photos in those folders showing some trees that were already changing to red but at this spot it looks more like summer to me.
To visit other photohunters, you can go to the home of the hunt where participants post beginning on Saturdays.

What a clever idea. I wished I thought of it first, saves me time to wrack my brain for inspiration.

Have a great weekend.

That's so cool and systematic Carver. I sorted mine in max file size. :)

Annie said...

I wish I had thought of this too. This was the hardest theme ever for me, and my pics are sorted into monthly files too. Great take and I love all your photos. I love that park in the last one, by the Farmer's Market - I've taken photos there too.

Happy weekend!

Like you I group my picture folders by the month/year as well :)
I find it useful and efficient when searching for any particular capture.
Great idea you've got for this week's theme.

Dearest CarverFriend,
My, but how well organized you are! Being a dog, I can only keep track of things in terms of when I last ate a meal (I only get two each day) and when I generally get my treats. Meals for my people usually include a little morsel, so I know when this occurs as well. I understand that time is a very abstract concept. That concept, in my case, lies in my stomach!
Zackary, my Brian's nephew, figured out that my sister and I have a birthday something like every 52 days...he is currently teaching me long division. So would you please tell my Kim that when she tells me to wait a minute, that is a very long time to a dog?
Speaking of waiting a very long time, my sister AbbeyDog went missing for an entire day. That was 2 meals, and 4 treats plus cooking time! She came home with staples in her underside. She is also quite thin. She had to have a surgery! I have been cleaning her face and taking care not to snuggle to close. I am just glad that she came back home because this place just doesn't smell the same without her. I am keeping my paws crossed that she will stay here with me for many more of our birthdays.
I am a very good sister.
Love, Emma

Lovely photos!

Good idea with the theme! Pity I can't copy it as my photo folders are categorised by month! ;(

Julie said...

Rinkly Rimes said...

I wont hon the photohunt because I'm not a good enough photographer AND I've just had my camera stolen!!! But I enjoy other photos such as yours and I admire your organised approach.

Heart of Rachel said...

Lovely photos! I admire how neat and organized you file your photos.

Kim, USA said...

bing said...

what organization you have. i think i have to be doing the same, too, for the pics.

Halie said...

I would say, this is the most unique take on theme that I've visited so far.

Organizing photos is not just a new interpretation, but also a great new idea for others.

Happy weekend!

Marta said...

I love the journey you took us on of photos of the month. What a unique take on the theme. Fun also to see what you took and how you organize the photos. I do mine mostly by season and subject.

Unknown said...

What a wonderfully creative way to handle this week's challenging theme. Great photos.

Scott Law said...

You went the full mile on this one. Someday I'm going to get my thousands of photos organized, some day. I may have to take a month some day to get it done. Very creative idea, and well done.
