Project 52: {A Part of Me}

4/52

{A Part of Me} is kinda old-fashioned… I am a paper-and-pen kinda girl. When it comes to putting my thoughts and ideas together, somehow, they just seem to flow so much better when I put a pen to paper. Scribbles start to shape into ideas and phrases make connections to convey meaning. I find it to be a more organic process, that conjures an almost unadulterated connection between thought and words.

This theme inspired me to look for new ways to tell a story.  I just discovered creating in-camera multiple exposures…and I think its awesome fun! It takes some careful planning and some experimenting.  But it lends a whole new vocabulary for story-telling!

What do you think?

Afternoon {Light} with my cup of chai. The way light changes with every passing minute as the sun starts to dip on the horizon, is simply amazing!  I probably should have added a picture of the charred plantain fritters too, that happened while I rushed to catch this light before it disappeared behind my neighbor’s house! 🙂

Project 52: Storytelling

Saturday mornings are for snuggling in bed a little longer. With the cold, winter grays,  pouring rain, and black bear to cuddle, there was no way Mr. J was going to be convinced otherwise! I loved this moment when I saw it. There is something simply magical in how silhouettes evoke such lovely stories by distilling the image to its most basic.

This was my {Storytelling} image for Project 52.

Project 52

So this year I am embarking on a personal project, and doing a Project 52. Why? Just for fun! Just coz I love making photographs. Just coz I want to be inspired by other photographers. Just coz I want to take up my camera for the joy of it and not just for client assignments.  Joining the troops at My Four Hens Photography, and taking a photograph every week on my interpretation of a theme or how it translates in my life.  The first theme is {Fresh}.  Some folks in my family get really excited seeing their {fresh} laundry 🙂  No really! Someone actually hugged their whites in glee!

Follow along and inspire me, coax me in case I lag behind! Always excited to read your comments! 🙂
