Today’s prompt says, “With an intuitive approach, I considered the photos’ subject matter and graphic attributes and chose those that resonated with each other, creating cross-dependencies and visual analogies. They’re combinations that tell a story.
The resulting dialogue — they story they tell — is the creation of each viewer’s individual perception.
It’s your turn now: for this week’s challenge, bring together two of your photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other?”

This week’s photo challenge was a tough one for me. The “assignment” was to show “a visual interpretation of one’s vision. A story, captured in a frame.” This seems to me to be something close to photojournalism. I think black and white. I think action, or a reference to action. I look through my portfolio, and most of what I have is nature portraiture and still life. The world through my eyes would seem posed, maybe even inert. Hmmm. This IS a challenge. In order to capture a story, I would have to show more of a scene, not just a subject. The backdrop, the context. That would probably mean I have to be more ready with my camera, “quicker on the draw”, so to speak. I will keep that in mind. Tomorrow, I go to my daughter’s Bridal Shower, and I intend to bring my camera. Maybe I can practice this assignment in that setting. For now, I will give you my best approximation at photojournalism, taken last October on our adventure to “Metaphorical Maine” (which actually turned out to be Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio).
