Week 14: Circle

I almost missed my own deadline this week.  Last night, I was relaxing and taking in some What Not To Wear, thinking about how I would love to have Stacy and Clinton teach me how to shop since I hate it, when a moment of panic brought me back to reality.  Had I worked on my photo for this week?  Or did I only dream it?  I grabbed my camera to see that my subject was still on the CF card – I totally dreamed it.

I do that a lot.  Dream that something happened and then it really didn’t.  I have a wonderful imagination.  One of these days I’m actually going to keep a dream journal and then maybe turn some into short stories.  They’re that good.

Here is my circle:

Week 14: Circle

Even though the subjects are randomly chosen, I’ve jotted down a few notes as I review it each week.  Next to circle, I reminded myself of the old rotary phone prop we have at work.  Circles galore on this thing.  And of course I had to give it spin.  Slower shutter speeds are fun to experiment with but they always make me feel unbalanced.  At least when weebles wobble, they don’t fall down.

A few more folks have jumped in the WPC Flickr Group so if you haven’t checked it out lately, you totally should.  And the Challenger Roll was updated last week – so many fun and clever blogs to get lost in.

Now on to Week 15… random generator roll please… our next subject for the challenge will be MOVEMENT.  Well I be darned – I was just talking about slowing down shutter speeds!  This is a fun subject to experiment with and I’m already looking forward to seeing how you guys capture movement.  Good luck and happy snapping!!

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Brooke, I’m glad you said something about the slow shutter because I was wondering where the piece was that you use to dial. Ahh the memories of trying to dial one of these after a few adult beverages…always and adventure.

Joan Nova - We are just up to that (shutter speed) in my photo class and that is my assignment for this week. How serendipitous!

omawarisan - What a cool shot. How many did you have to take before you got your finger out of the frame in time?

Rotary phones are a lot of phone to explain to teenagers.
