This picture of me for the selfie assignment was taken at Mi Famiglia, an Oregon City restaurant last fall where the owner was gracious enough to allow me to display 13 photos on the wall.
Conveniently enough, the selfie assignment corresponded really nicely with setting up my display. My shot of the Oregon City elevator is hanging on the wall above my head.
Mi Famiglia has great wood fired pizza and does great business. Their location in downtown Oregon City is the perfect place for me to display my photos, and I think that the restaurant is pleased as well to have local art on the walls.
If you are in downtown Oregon City, stop by and have a pie. You won't regret it, and you will get to see what my photos look like on the wall.
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.
