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.
'Opposition' (the word) feels foreign to me. It makes me think of politicians yelling at each other and rebel groups trying to overthrow governments. It doesn't apply to my quiet, suburban life.
This makes me wonder, who is my opposition? Who's trying to bring me down?
If I'm honest, the opposition isn't a person or group. It's routine. It's doing the same thing over and over again. It's going to work, staring at the computer, doing the dishes, going to bed, and repeating the same process tomorrow.
I made this photograph on Ilford HP5+ using my Canonet QL17 G-III.
