The prompt of this assignment was simple: submit your best photos taken between August 1-31, 2018. The 31 photos selected for this final story — for the 31 days in August — are sequenced in chronological order, creating a visual diary of our world during the month. Through your submissions, I found myself reflecting on what I was doing on the same days of my favorite photos. Your photos transport me to somewhere else in the world without leaving Washington DC — and as I continue these "My Best Photos of (Month)" assignments, together we will be documenting the history of our world while revealing the similarities and differences in the everyday moments of our lives.
"My Best Photos of September 2018" assignment is scheduled to launch on September 23, 2018. The prompt of this assignment is simple: share your best photos taken from September 1-30, 2018. Submission deadline for this assignment will be October 3, 2018. These "My Best Photos of (Month)" assignments encourages you to keep shooting and sharing new photos. This is how you will grow into a better photographer and a more thoughtful storyteller — one photo at a time. Keep shooting. You got this.
