It’s the final week of the design fundamentals summer course. In some ways it feels like we’ve been doing this course for ages. And then, as always, there’s that feeling that it went by too quickly.

This week we’re studying photography with Charlee Brodsky. As stated in this week’s syllabus, “We will look at, discuss, and make photographs.” Simple. I like it.

The goal is to give us a better understanding of photography “in terms of reading photographs and making them.” Cool.

Our assignment for tomorrow is to make six pairs of photos of representational and abstract images. So this afternoon I scooted around Regent Square on my bike taking pictures according to my interpretation of the assignment, which I hope is correct.

The photos I took were okay. I wish they were better. But I was stretched for time.

Here’s an example pairing.
