Starting with this May’s challenge, we have a changing of the guard. Bill initiated this series and curated it for its first year, for which we all owe him a word of thanks. I’m taking on responsibility for the next year and will do my best to come up with worthwhile subjects. I’m open to ideas too though, so please feel free to send me suggestions. If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll be duly acknowledged and entitled to heaps of glory.
I’ve made a separate post for this announcement just to highlight it, but after this I’ll continue to maintain Bill’s post for continuity.
Challenge for May, 2019: This month’s challenge was inspired by this excerpt from Robert Pirsig’s wonderful Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, one of my favorite books. Take a photo of a brick, and say something about it. Or compose an ode to it, or sing a song about it and include a video. Probably should include a bike in the photo as long as you’re at it.
A note of clarification
it is not necessary to find a stand alone brick, or to tear one out of a wall so you can photograph it in isolation. It is fine to photograph a brick as part of a wall, or a heap, or a sidewalk, or a brick silo, or a brick outhouse.
