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 photo shows two cape buffalo at the Denver Zoo. My wife and I have been planning a trip to the zoo for weeks. We were excited to take our daughter, who's been diligently practicing her animal sounds daily. "What sound does an elephant make?"
This trip to the zoo was our third with our daughter. I love watching her get excited about the animals. Her enthusiasm is infectious. It makes me feel excited, too. We read books about these animals. We watch them on TV, but it's not the same as seeing them up close. Seeing the animals through her eyes makes me feel like a child again.
