Group members take a half hour walk once a week with their camera. Each week members post one image from their walk to share and discuss. Members of the group have attended photography workshops and photography tours presented by photographer Dan Splaine of Test of Time Photography in Nashua, NH.There's something very therapeutic about making one image to rule them all each week. I joined near the tail end of the 52 weeks at which time the group disbanded never to be spoken of again. Except in the halls of the NSA Prism program where no doubt my picture from week 3 set off some alarms.
Here are the images I submitted.
|Week 1: Conner (center) on the sideline during a soccer game.|
|Week 2: Found this on a walk through my neighborhood. Lots of great colors before hurricane Sandy came through. This is my first contribution to the Image Makers Group.|
|Week 3: I tried to catch the liftoff of 9 simultaneously launched rockets. Turns out they rarely lift off at the same time.|
|Week 4: Caught this guy at my son's birthday party. Surprisingly cute for a skunk.|
|Week 5: I was traveling this week and didn't bring my Cannon so I went with the iPhone camera. This was taken after a particularly yummy meal under the influence of a not insignificant amount of sake.|
|Bonus image: Took this in my backyard while enjoying a night around the fire pit. It would have been my week 7 submission if the group hadn't closed down.|
