Reader photos: Not many people wanted to play in the rain, which made us feel blue

By Michael Creedon of New Bern, N.C.: Photo taken in River Bend, N.C.

We were a little disappointed that more of you didn’t get out and play in the rain for the photo topic this week.

We received only two submissions, and it was Michael Creedon’s that really captured the “Playing in the Rain” theme.

Next assignment: Blue.

Be creative with this one. Think outside the box and all those other cliches. Be sure to include in your submission email why your photo encapsulates “blue,” if it’s not immediately obvious.

The rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to yourphotos@postandcourier.com by noon on Thursday, May 21. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.

- The top pick each week will be featured in the Sunday Arts & Culture section and appear on The Post and Courier Facebook page.
