So when creating the Weekly Photo Challenge, I scoured the internet looking at other’s lists of subjects. And then I [somewhat] randomly arranged a list of 52 everyday subjects so that the challenge would last a full year. Not until last week did I say to myself, “Fork? What the heck were you thinking?”
I believe my original intention was to make myself think outside of the box. Fork in the road. Pitchfork. Tuning fork. Places named Fork. Not to forget to mention there’s something like 68 different kinds of cutlery that are called forks. My brain was apparently in stay-cation mode and there was no thinking outside the box. But that doesn’t mean I’m not happy with the results.
Here is my fork:
I haven’t played with shadows much but I like the way this turned out. Maybe fork wasn’t such a bad idea after all. :)
Now a secret: This was the last photo on my card. Number 187/187. Yes, I took that many pictures of forks. Why do I share this with you? So that you don’t feel silly taking hundreds of pictures of random crap. You don’t have to keep them all, just the ones you like. And then you pick the best and share it with the world. A beautiful idea – and how professional photographers work. Ansel Adams probably had dozens of crappy prints of Yosemite National Park. But we will never know.
For next week, the challenge is “cold.” Perfect since it’s starting to get chilly here in Louisville. But don’t forget to check out the flickr pool’s photos or click on the challenger roll – I look forward to Wednesdays just so I can see what others came up with. Happy Wednesday!
