Checklist Manifesto

February 12, 2010

The Daily Shoot assignment #89

Continuing the Friday fun theme, make a photo that goes with the title of a book you’ve read.

I have recently read The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande as well as his other two books “Better” and “Complications”. The two older books are compilations of his pieces in the New Yorker while the new book expands on the medical checklist theme which he and others have written about recently. Highly recommended.

By the way, I’m originally posting these on Twitter (via Twitpic). Of course I don’t use Twitter for anything else so I’m not sure what the point of the extra link is other than to mention that I’m a social media animal :-)

The Daily Shoot assignment #80:

Make a “sharp” photo today any way you interpret it, either tack-sharp focus or a subject that is sharp itself.

Orange Scissors

February 1, 2010

I thought I’d give the Daily Shoot a try. Every day a new theme is posted and people submit photographs.

My goal is to create something as quickly as possible, say less than 5 minutes to shoot, process, and post. The theme today is:

Time for another color theme: Orange! Keep your eyes peeled for anything orange today and make an interesting photo.

These are scissors from my desk. Did I mention that I’m serious about the 5 minute rule?
