Umbrellas in winter? Balaclavas in July? Show us what “off-season” means to you.
Last September, I visited the beautiful state of Utah in the United States. The mountainous terrain is a veritable paradise for bikers, hikers, skiers, and all types of outdoor enthusiasts.
One morning, we enjoyed breakfast at Solitude — a ski resort — as puffy white clouds floated over the still-green ski slopes. There were only a few people around, random hikers like us, enjoying the mountain in relative — ahem — solitude well before winter snows transformed the mountain into a skier’s dream.
This week, we challenge you to show us what off-season means to you. It could be the shuttered ice-cream stand in the Southern Hemisphere where winter is drawing near. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere it might your snowmobile peeking out from beneath its tarp, or your Christmas decorations arranged neatly in the attic. Feel free to interpret this theme loosely — consider objects at rest and unmoved, places that are stagnant or abandoned.
Can’t wait to see how you interpret this challenge!
