This week’s challenge was to focus on “the story within the image.” I took this picture of the Governor’s Mansion from the Grace Street overlook in Church Hill. If I had to title it, I’d go with something like Center of Controversy. I liked the green space surrounding and isolating the Mansion—and the man who […]
Peanut butter. Here’s a picture of a man with a foot injury wearing pink pants, though.
This was fun, and my family was very patient with me. Thanks, family! I did get a few more that turned out great but were deemed “too weird” by the model to post online. Which, fair enough.
Who can deny the wonderful branding of Genesee??
What does this challenge even mean?? I don’t know enough to know what qualifies as a still life and what does not, so here are a couple photos of things being very still—because they are inanimate.
Trees! So easy! So omnipresent! But guess what? In the deep of February, in the midst of a million straight days of rain, trees are…not that awesome looking. Just a buncha black, severe, dead-looking things hanging out in tree wells across the City. Anyway, here’s what I came up with for week eight (one is […]
Peanut butter. I’m just not super into these technique challenges, so, instead, here’s a picture of steam (which was the week before last’s challenge) that I got while making chicken soup.
I took a ton of photos this week but not a ton of music-related ones, for whatever reason. I did, somehow, convince my son to begrudgingly hold his saxophone for a quick photo shoot—but he would not fully put the horn together or allow me to put his face in any of the pictures. Fine. […]
The intention behind this week’s challenge was to photograph long, swirling trails of smoke or steam. I…didn’t do that, and, instead, ended up with just a few photos that hew only very loosely to the theme. First, a close up of frost—which is kind of like vapor? right?—on a leaf in my yard. Next, a […]
This isn’t Sam and Ross Like Things, so I‘m allowed to hedge: I don’t think I did my best work this week. I took plenty of pictures, which is part of the reason I’m doing his challenge, but most of them feel…boring? I didn’t spend enough time thinking through and looking for shots that would […]
I didn’t realize until late in the week that the Guily Pleasures theme could apply non-edible items—like Marvel’s Runaways, a show that is somehow simultaneously compelling and unremarkable. This means that we’re stuck with food and food-adjacent subject matter. This week: Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend, Miller High Life, Tarrant’s (where […]
In 2018, as part of my annual goals, I decided to get a Fracture of my favorite photo taken each month. This was, in part, to encourage myself to take more photographs, and, in part, to get a bunch of cool pictures hanging next to my bed. It was definitely one of my more fun […]
