Week 10? How did we get here already? And an even better question, what happened to week 9? Well don’t worry. After racking my brain to think of a good cliché theme, I’ve finally got it, and I’m just waiting to get a model….again. So it’s on the way, along with the “red” week theme that’s still a work in progress. Just hang tight, it’ll be worth the wait!
As for this week, I’m a little tempted to combine the business challenge with the photo challenge. Business challenge? (So many questions this week!) Ahh yes, I’m still keeping that portion of this 52 week challenge in mind. So the photo theme is collage, which is like a bonus-do-whatever-you-want type theme (yay!), and the business challenge is “Loved ones photo shoot”, which is just like another photo challenge. Now, I have to admit, that would kind of be like taking the easy way out, but it sounds like a fun idea. The only down side is….my family hates taking pictures. I think they, particularly my immediate family, have been scarred for life when taking pictures. My mother is a photo fanatic, and is one of those “Smile, oh wait, smile, wait you’re not smiling….SMILE!”, and “OH WAIT!!! Just one more!!” (but it’s never just one) type of photographers. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate my well documented childhood, but it was a little much at times (sorry mom 🙂 ). So I think I may see if I can get a few of the family members together this weekend, and get some fun, causal pictures to get the business side of this week done. As for the photo challenge, I’m thinking of focusing on a single object, and taking photos from various angles to create some abstractions. Now just to pick an object. Maybe something sentimental? Who knows, but if we’re going to go the sentimental route, here’s one of my favorite sentimental pictures,which was taken with my film camera and finished as a kallitype print. Miss you Lelo.
