Week 5

This week was tough, creatively. The random word of the week was:

Week 5 - Hideous Hideous. As a photographer, I have a hard time finding anything hideous. The ugliest things, when captured well, can seem beautiful, or interesting, or striking. Or all of the above. I couldn’t think of anything I might come across in my daily life that would appear hideous in a photo. Until one day, I was walking into my building at work and passing the unofficial “smoking area”. Anyone who lives in a city that receives any amount of snowfall during the winter will recognize this phenomena. When the piles of snow start to melt and leave behind this greyish brown not-snow matter, full of cigarette butts and disposable coffee cups. Usually buildings maintain the areas just outside of their doors by cleaning up all the cigarette butts that smokers carelessly litter about, but when there are large piles of snow concealing them, they don’t get cleaned up until the snow starts to melt. And so, I present to you, this hideousness.

Week 5 Hideous

If you are just joining us this week, the project is to take and post one photo per week which represents a random word generated by this online tool.
