Famous Spring Quotations Assignment

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."
-- Margaret Atwood

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers: Of April, May, of June, and July flowers. I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, wassails, wakes, Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes.
Robert Herrick

You will shoot two contact sheets based around two quotes about the spring season. I will list a few websites where you can find some quotes about spring, or you can find your own.

You will have shooting days on Wed/Thurs.
Contact sheets are due at the end of each of these days.
Next Wednesday you will have class time to adjust these pictures. One of these adjustments will be a collage.

Many spring quotes are directly about the seasons and nature. However, you will find many quotes that also deal with events or sports that take place during spring time like weddings, music festivals, baseball, and golf etc. You also may find quotes that talk about spring cleaning, BBQ's, family gatherings, Easter, and Mother's Day etc.

Spring Quotes




You may also use a quote from spring poems.

Don't forget, you can also try to find your own quotations as well.
