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.
This week's assignment took me to the Douglas County Fair. This event promises fun for the whole family, from a petting zoo to an exhibition of senior citizens' crafts.
My submission shows the Douglas County High School football team's float in the parade opening the fair. They were larger than life, singing, flexing, and throwing candy to the onlookers. They were on top of the world.
I made this photo using a Canonet G-III QL17 and Ilford HP5+.
