PP9: Walking Meditation

Photojournalist Duncan Davidson talked about “finding the photograph right in front of you” utilizing the process of “walking meditation.”

Separate from each other. Take a walk BY YOURSELF around campus. And find that one object you can see clearly — more clearly than ever before. Take the photo and post it, explaining what you are seeing for the first time.

This project is due by 1 p.m. today.

Enjoy your Fall Break … but take some pictures too!

Two of the photos must have people (not you) in them.
