Summertime photography

There are many things I enjoy about summer: finding the time for reflection (a blog reflecting on my past school year is forthcoming), getting caught up on sleep and housecleaning (still working on the latter), and of course, reading (often with accompanying book reviews). I recently had the pleasure of reading and reviewing Andy Karr and Michael Wood's The Practice of Contemplative Photography: Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes (my review is posted here on Elephant Journal). Included with most of the chapters are exercises, "assignments," in which one gets to implement and practice the principles taught in the book. I took the time to complete many of the assignments, and was rather pleased with many of the results. I put them together in a slide show below...enjoy!

  1. Oh, what delightful journey to view your contemplative photos! Thank you for sharing your review on Elephant Journal. You've allowed me to see how much fun it can be to do those assignments, so I'm off to buy the book. Thank you again!
