As I write this, I’m in the airport, on my way to a long weekend away from the oppressive heat of Washington, D.C. And I haven’t yet finalized my final story edit. I have a wide edit of 350 photos, edited down from more than 8,000, patiently waiting for me to continue making my selections.
I knew this assignment might be a bit of a challenge for our community because it involved creativity, capturing action (in some cases) and interpreting what exactly “play” is together in one photograph. The discussion board was vibrant in workshopping what might make a suitable submission to this assignment, and I loved reading through the feedback exchanged between our community. My heart is always warmed when I see messages from folks saying that they picked up their camera with an intent to use this assignment as a catalyst to go outside of their comfort zone to photograph something new.
