I've joined Kenneth Wajda and a small group of photographers in a weekly photo game. Each week Kenneth writes a prompt, and we're each tasked with creating a photograph that meets the prompt.
There are a few rules:
- All submissions must be scans of film, no photos from digital cameras
- Images must be taken, processed, and submitted by 8AM each Saturday
- Miss a week, and you're out
My goal in playing is simple. Get out and shoot film.
This week's prompt is "Appliance Love," which I struggled with. I'm not very fond of most of my household appliances. In fact, my mood sours whenever I think about my Internet-connected, touchscreen-controlled oven. So dumb!
However, there is one appliance that does make me happy, and that is my KitchenAid stand mixer. I wanted one aspirationally. I told myself that I'd do so much more baking if I had one.
Now, I've got one. I don't do much more baking, but it still makes me happy.
The photo was captured on Ilford HP5+ with my grandfather's Rolleiflex 2.8E.
