Source: Week 10: Photographer’s Choice
I found this week quite hard, as it was up to each of us to choose a photo! It was much more difficult than I thought it would be. Isn’t it funny how we can get thrown by simple things – like having too much choice??
So if you’re following along at home here is my photo for Week 10 of our 52 week photography project, with the theme Photographer’s Choice.
The words I used to accompany my photo:
When I questioned the theme of Photographer’s choice, while being away from home for the week, my sister’s advice was take a photo of something I wouldn’t find at home. So obviously I chose Mt Warning as my model! The iconic cane fields provide a natural frame to this special place.
I also took this photo of Mt Warning, as framed by some lovely old trees, and had a terrible time choosing which one to use! In the end I went with the cane fields as they are an icon in the area. Which one would you have chosen to use?
This week’s photos were another great mix of everyone’s personalities. You’ll have to click the link to go and check them all out.
I often think the comments accompanying the photos are the best part and this week was no exception. Do you have any comments to make?
What’s the story behind the 52 week photography project?
I have joined with 6 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!
I’ve been assured it’s all about creativity not necessarily photographic expertise. I am enjoying the challenge of looking for suitable shots as soon as the next week’s theme is announced, it takes over my thinking until I’ve taken my shot and sent it in. Then I can relax a bit!
It’s turned into a bit of a family affair actually with my sister, my brother-in-law, my nephew, my husband, my daughter and a close friend of my sister’s. You can read more about us all here on the About page.
Each week for 52 weeks…
Each week we are given a new theme and must take a photo, add some words and submit it to Tim (brother-in-law), who will compile a post on Sunday night. He then tells us our next theme…and so on for 52 weeks! We all enjoy a bit of a comment session after the post goes live which is always fun.
This is the first time I’ve been involved in this project but some of the others are on their second time round. At the end of the previous project they produced a beautiful coffee table book with all the photos and words included from their weekly submissions. It’s a magnificent record of a year in photos.
It’s great to be involved in such a creative challenge with a small supportive group. I’d love to hear your thoughts on our various takes on any of these themes. Be sure to click on the link to check out the full post over on the blog 52 Weeks Photography Group.
Happy photographing! Let me know what you think of our photos this week, as always I appreciate your thoughts.
