Typography was a difficult assignment for me. It was hard to find a subject that wasn't just stationary letters. On the last day of the assignment while playing with my kiddo, these shots emerged from our play time together.
As a parent, watching your child learn to write is one of those times that makes you wonder how they got so big so fast. But I will always have these pictures to remind me of the unmistakable script of the transition from toddler to childhood.
On Taking Assignments
I frequently listen to the On Taking Pictures (OTP) podcast, which I highly recommend to anyone looking for good conversation about creativity, especially as it related to photography. In January 2014 the hosts, Bill Wadman and Jeffery Saddoris, began a new segment of weekly assignments that they gave to listeners. Results of the assignments are posted on the OTP Google Plus group. I decided that I would commit myself to the assignments for a year without interruption, and that I would complete each one before the next assignment was announced on the show each Tuesday morning. My 'On Taking Assignments' blog posts are the culmination of my year-long focus on these assignments.
