I have tried many of these themed and structured photographic challenges, and have without fail lost momentum for one reason or another. Then I thought about the NaNoWriMo which is a November Challenge for writers to simply write at least 50 000 words. No proofing or editing. Not even a concern for structure or flow. Just simply letting the words and the ideas flow from the mind to the page.
I wanted to do something similar with photography, and thus Photo Frenzy Friday, where there is not theme, no quota, no particular objectives other than to take photos. This is challenging enough for me as I have a day job at an office, so my Fridays tend to be rather similar. It is therefore refreshing as I try to find things that I haven’t seen before. I start to take notice of the people around me. The weather. The routines of others, and so forth.
It also challenges my perception of what I would normally perceive to be photographic material. Everyday items that would otherwise be completely ignored, now become more interesting. These I will be posting on my Goggle+ and Facebook pages.
