Sober Photography Project: Assignment #5

OK, now that we have a few sober ‘boy’ readers, I may need to rename this Photography Project!

Here’s the deal.  When we first get sober, there’s a lot of free time that has to be ‘filled’ with something more productive. Read more here and here.

Assignment #5 Sober Rewards

For this assignment, you can take a picture of your favourite sober reward: the little things you buy yourself as a treat, just because you’re sober. Fruit, magazines, tea, books… Pink pedicure? If you haven’t had a treat in a while, this would be a good time to get one. And then take a picture of it 🙂
  • DEADLINE: Monday, July 8 @ 12 noon Eastern.
  • The format is open: black and white, filters, cropping, all OK.  You can use your camera phone or a nice camera.
  • The photo must be original, and taken AFTER the assignment is received (like, no going through past pictures taken, it has to be new).
  • If you suck at photo adjustments or cropping, send it anyway with a note that you’d like me to adjust.
  • Send as LARGE a file size as you can manage (up to 12MB per image).  Don’t reduce for size.  the bigger the better.
  • Um, you have to be sober … (you don’t have to be officially registered in the 100 day challenge)
  • One entry per person per assignment (think of the size of my inbox!)

For inspiration, here are a few sober treat photos:




I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012
