Last Saturday, I looked around my job and noticed a lot of blue, potentially photographic moments. So I dubbed this week, "Take Your Camera to Work Week." Only problem, my normally quiet-on-the-weekends workplace was hoppin' today. And I have performance anxiety when it comes to taking photos.
In point of fact, one of my goals in this project is to face that particular demon down. But c'mon, we're just starting out here. Can't I face that demon next week, or better yet, next month? Which is precisely what I was thinking when I took these few photos on a quick break when I was alone in the building.
For the most part, I'm not particularly satisfied with the results of Take Your Camera to Work Week, although I do like this last one. I wonder if I'd gone ahead and faced that Performance Anxiety Monster, would I be more impressed?
On another note, I'm thinking about a silly game called "Guess My Job." Can you guess what I do, if you don't know already, based on the pictures I post on Saturdays (sometimes Sundays)? Here's a clue from a few weeks ago.
Back at home, in the bosom of my family, where I can take whatever crazy photo I want to without worrying what anybody's thinking. My husband turned the light on as he walked into the room during the shoot, wondering what I was doing in the dark. I turned to him with a disgruntled "Dude!" and without a word, he turned the light off and walked the rest of the way into the room. At home, I own myself as "photographer." Out in the world, still a work in progress.
