Last Saturday when I decided to go see Bernie Sanders, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to knock off Page 112 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT. Bernie Sanders was speaking at the Sun Room at the Memorial Union at noon, which gave me the perfect opportunity to get there early and prowl around Iowa State and capture an image that would encompass Page 112 to perfection:
Page 112 – Take a picture inspired by the last thing that jolted you awake.
To explain slightly, I have a recurring dream where I’m still a student at Iowa State University and it is approaching the end of the semester and I haven’t been to class since the first week of the semester. I used to have this dream a few times a year. Now it is probably once a year at the most. However, it is so vivid that I often wake-up in a panic and have thoughts of finding my syllabus and figuring out if it even possible for me to pass any classes. Then I realize, I graduated a long, long, long time ago.
I purposely went with a surreal look to the image to make it coincide with something you might experience in a dream.
Here are a few other pictures I took for Page 112, but won’t be physically adhered in the physical THE PHOTO JOURNAL that sits on the coffee table in my humble abode:
Not sure what page we’ll get to in THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT next week, but I definitely have plans for some pages, that I’m just waiting for weather to be just right. The next page could be:
Page 116 – Shoot an advert where the image says it all without need for additional copy.
Page 117 – Show us photography is a form of magic.
Page 109 – Photograph a word to change its meaning.
Page 74-75 – A record of interesting backgrounds.
Page 36 – User shutter speed to capture ANGER!
This is your reminder that this week’s theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE is STREET PHOTOGRAPHY:
STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is photography that involves capturing candid moments on the streets. Chance interactions. They don’t necessarily involve people, although frequently do.
Happy photo harvesting!
