I joined Kenneth Wajda and a small group of photographers in a weekly photo game awhile ago. Each week Kenneth wrote a prompt, and we were tasked with creating a photograph that met the prompt. Unfortunately Kenneth's photo game is taking a break.
I am still enjoying film photography, and my wife has graciously agreed to provide me with a surprise prompt each week. So, I plan to continue with my own personal photo game.
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 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 was "the grind," which is a term that I don't understand, and at this point I'm too afraid to ask. I think it has something to do with hard work. There also seems to be an element of routine, meaning that the grind is day-to-day living.
I don't have any idea whether the image below actually represents "the grind," but it is a slice of everyday life, and I really like it.
I captured this photo on Ilford HP5+ with my Canonet QL17.
