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 has 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 taken, 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.
I didn't appreciate spring when I was younger. I preferred summer and winter. I liked when it was 80 degrees or snowing, black or white.
I've changed since then. Now I prefer the "grays" of spring and fall. I like the specialness of a sunny 60-degree day after a week of weather in the 40s. Who needs the heat? Who wants the cold?
Beyond the weather, I know it's spring when Mom wants to color Easter eggs. This week's submission is a photo of that.
I made this photo on Ilford HP5+ with a Canonet QL17.
