On the last Saturday of my vacation I headed up to the downtown Boone area to stroll around and complete Page 33 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:
Cover your screen with black tape. Spend the day shooting and only remove the tape when you get home.
This was a little photo experiment that I enjoyed more than I anticipated. I would encourage anybody to try it.
I put an 18-135 zoom lens on my camera for this page. I decided I needed the extra challenge of also zooming blindly, in addition to composing blind for some reason.
Another thing that I didn’t expect to be so hard about the project (for me personally) was to have to so blindly trust auto-focus.
If you are getting a little bored in your photography, I definitely urge you to try this for an hour or so. It is more fun than it sounds. One other added bonus is not seeing the pictures takes us old-timers back to the days of film and not being able to get that instant gratification of what the picture looks like.
Here are the other pictures I took on this photo jaunt that I like (to one degree or another) but won’t physically be placed in the physical copy of A PHOTO JOURNAL:
I did not crop or straighten any of the pictures.
Next time we check in with THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT we will most likely check in on Page 93.

This is easily one of my favorite collections yet from the photo journal. These are great – I bet it would have been difficult to choose, but I love the one you taped in.
…I wouldn’t have had a hard time nixing those creepy dolls, though. Reminds me of that crazy farm you went to in MN.
Dolls are creepy. It wasn’t a farm though. It was a Foto Park and an Antique Store.
I did enjoy this collection. It is a fun little exercise. When I initially edited the photos, I thought I would go with the Dahls Hardware photo, but as I looked at them, the photo of the two old abandoned rail cars really grew on me. Especially with the abandoned chute coming out of the building. Just something about it.
