That—I’ve not yet quite accepted the fact that for me (for lack of other words) photography is yet another idea-related obsession. I once read a book called Woman and Work – the interviewee, a sculptress, said that she could not cook because she’d become obsessed with rearranging the food on her plate. I now understand this. Possible photographs are now seemingly everywhere. Before breakfast, I took a few pictures of our teapot. And after breakfast, I took a few pictures of my glasses on print sources.
The other—I’ve (at least in my head) come full circle on the self-portrait assignment. I’ve now distanced myself, and moved from taking images of myself to taking images of my glasses, using the object to represent me. It’s a bit late in terms of this assignment to continue with this line of thought – I wish that I hadn’t tossed my cataract surgery memorabilia away.
I now have an idea. I’m going to take a photo of my draft page for the website. I’m next going to take a photo of this print page for the website, maybe enlarging the font some. Huh. Must be an ideas day.
