Photo of the Day
In college a photography professor of mine had us submit a photo of the day for our assignment. He pressed us to take a picture of something in our ordinary day, to make art out of the mundane. I struggled with this. My life is great but it's not art.
I miss that class. I loved looking through the other students' eyes and seeing a glimpse of their lives. It was interesting to see how different all of our lives were. I remember the people with kids who couldn't seem to find another subject worthy of the camera, a med school student, a computer geek, and the guy who would take the most boring pictures of rocks or the sidewalk and defend them when our teacher would critique them.
I have decided to take up this past time again and use my blog to post a sporadic 'Photo of the Day.' Feel free to critique.
