I joined Kenneth Wajda and a small group of photographers in a weekly photo game a while ago. Kenneth wrote a prompt each week and tasked us with creating a photograph that met the prompt. Unfortunately, Kenneth's photo game is taking a break.
Since I'm not prepared to give up the game, my wife graciously agreed to provide me with a surprise prompt each week so that I can continue.
The rules are still the same:
- All submissions must be scans of film; no photos from digital cameras
- Images must be captured, processed, and submitted by 8 AM each Saturday
- Miss a week, and you're out
My goal in playing is simple. Get out and shoot film.
Remember the scene in Mean Girls when Cady sees Regina George running her hands through her love interest's hair? Cady narrates, "Regina was dangling Aaron in front of me on purpose. I knew how this would be settled in the animal world." Then she snarls like a jungle cat and lunges across the lunch table at Regina.
This week, I visited a high school to watch a gymnastics meet. Before I went, I expected to see feral teenagers, acting like animals. I imagined it would be like the scene from Mean Girls, with lots of growling, screeching, and snorting. Of course, there was some of that. There was also hugging—lots of hugging.
