Sober Photography (or Art) Project: Assignment #10

Time for a new photography project.  And based on all the emails i’m getting, i know there are sober photographers out there.  And also sober painters, and sober drawers… So for this project, you can draw or paint or photograph, your choice.

Learn more about the idea of having a sober hobby here. See the results from previous projects here.

This is open for anybody, you don’t have to be a fancy ass photographer. No inner critic allowed. Are you ready?

Assignment #10 … Breakfast

That’s it. That’s the whole assignment. Take a picture of breakfast. Doesn’t even have to be your breakfast… You can interpret this however you like.

  • DEADLINE: Saturday, September 21 @ 12 noon Eastern.
  • The format is open: for photos, you can use your camera phone or a nice camera. For drawings, paintings, just take a picture (or scan) and email to me.
  • The project 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 …
  • One entry per person per assignment (think of the size of my inbox!)

NOTE: Find breakfast, take a picture.  It’ll turn out better than you think it will. This is a fun project, you remember fun right? I learned all about fun by doing this with Christina.

Here’s Christina’s breakfast. Are you hungry yet?

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
