Images in the time of Coronavirus: Images by the Dozen
After the success of the family based photography challenge, the A-Z of Isolation, back in April, my sister and brother-in-law moved onto the next challenge – Images by the Dozen but with the added twist of not bering able to use any numbers in the photos.
This time there were 10 of us involved!
The rules were pretty simple:
- one photo for each number from 1-12
- no numbers to be used in the photos
- photos could be taken anywhere, not limited to the home area
- Fun Guy
- Cycling friends
- Pairs of feet
- Leaves on the car
- Vintage tobacco tins
- Pieces of popcorn
- Letters on a sign
My sister and her husband are now compiling the photos into a magazine/book so we have something to look back on from this time.
I’ve also been sharing some of my shots on Instagram.
How it worked
Just like the Alphabet challenge, we had to decide what photos to take to represent each number. Some of us planned this step out much more than others!
Over a few Sunday nights, we all got together on Zoom and shared our photos from the week. It was a great way to stay connected, think outside the box and have some fun being creative. Everyone’s photos were fabulous and although different some were similar. For instance my sister and I both chose to photograph eggs for number 11!
It’s great to see how others think.
I always find these challenges just that, a challenge, which means I push myself to see the world a bit differently and to extend my thinking.
Thanks to my clever sister and brother-in-law for the idea and for inviting us into their challenge.
Our next project is photos of Ordinary Objects x 10 – more details to come!
How was your time in lockdown spent, did you get up to any challenges?
What did you think of my representations of numbers 1-12?
Hoping all is going well with you.
