Last week we asked our Los Angeles readers to take photos of the annual “purple rain” that falls over the city: the blooming of the jacaranda tree. From the lavender canopies over city streets to the flurries of blossoms that decorate the sidewalks and lawns, the jacaranda makes for one of the most colorful signs of summer.
It's time for another crowdsourced Picture Show. And we need your help. This time around, we want you to capture an image of something you've found on the street.
the THEME Nicola recently posted a story about a broken-up couple who started a blog, Sad Stuff on the Street, to transition their failed long-distance relationship into a friendship. Their blog features images of old mattresses, deserted gifts, prosthetics, and the like.
While this project was mostly just about seeing gas prices in different states, we asked the community to vote on their favorite image. And the GOOD community did just that. We’re happy to announce our winner Kyle Craft, resident of Pacific Beach, California, where gas costs between $3.96 and $4.59 per gallon.
Each month we ask the GOOD community to help us create a Picture Show. During October, we asked for pictures of trees. Even though the submissions came from all over the globes, the photos all seemed to capture the intrinsic beauty of the natural world. See for yourself in our Picture Show.
We’re happy to announce our winner, Shannon Hannon. Her photo of the seedling breaking through the cracked ground in Port Au Prince captured the GOOD community’s belief in hope for Haiti.
