I was working on a logo design for a former co-worker of mine last night when I got the urge to just play. I’ve only been feeling creative sporadically lately so I thought I would take advantage of this moment of inspiration and indulge it a bit.

Welcome to the 12th edition of the “Points of View Project“!
Every other Friday I will post a new, out-of-the-camera image for you to download. You may process, manipulate, composite, experiment, or otherwise alter the photo in any way you wish. The hope is that we will get to see a number of different takes on the same image and/or see it used in unique ways as a part of a new image.
This is not a contest or competition. It’s simply a way of stretching our creative muscles and to get those juices flowing through experimentation and seeing how many different interpretations can be applied to the same starting photo.
Check out our Points of View Gallery showing this week’s source image and how it has been seen from our contributors’ different points of view. I am especially pleased with this week’s contributions.
Thank you to everyone who contributed this week!
Here’s the image for week #13:
Click here to open the full-size version to download as your starting point. Have fun with it! I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
You can do whatever you want to the photo as long as you use the given photo in some way as part of your final image. In fact, I know the potential is there for a number of people to end up processing the image in very similar ways and getting similar results. Because of that, I’d like to encourage you to experiment and/or take things a couple of steps further to really challenge yourself to make it truly unique.
Once you have worked with the image as much as you feel it needs, simply email it back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday September 23rd for inclusion in the project. Please be sure to include your name, location, and website/blog URL so I may properly credit you.
If you would like to send in a photo – unprocessed, straight out of the camera – for us to use as our starting image for a future week, please send me an email to the same address listed above.
I’d like to note that the image(s) that will be used in a given week are only offered for use within the confines of the “Points of View Project“. I am not releasing any rights for use beyond creating your submission. I would also express the same for any starting images that may be provided by other participants. Feel free to re-post your version of the image on your site to share your participation in the project. I just ask for a link back here when you do.

Last week while I was in Boston for the Internet Retailer Conference, I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow photographer and regular reader Chris Stern to go on a photowalk around the Boston Common area along Tremont Street from the Ritz to the Old City Hall and back.
When I was in school at Boston University back in the day (“which was a Wednesday, by the way…”) I wandered these streets time and time again, but it wasn’t until I was out of college that I really got into photography and this was my first opportunity to get out and about in the city with my camera.
I took about 250 shots – which includes my usual 3-4 captures per subject/angle – and there is still a lot to get through. However, there have been a couple of standouts in the batch I’ve processed so far. View a small gallery of some of my shots from the day.
My apologies for not being able to keep up this past week. I was exptremely busy in Boston with the Internet Retailer Conference and was pretty much out of commission the rest of the time. I was, however, lucky enough to be feeling pretty decent on Wednesday night when Chris Stern and I were able to meet up, along with my coworker Michael, to do some shooting around the Tremont Street area for a couple of hours.
I haven’t had a chance to process anything yet but I hope to this weekend. If you want to see a growing number of shots that Chris took, check out his Flickr page. Some really nice shots in there. I’ve really enjoyed Chris’ work lately and I’m really glad we had a chance to finally meet in person.
Until next week…

Sorry for the lack of posting this week. Not only have I been consumed by this conference but I’ve been under the weather all week. But fear not, I’m on the mend and our impromptu Boston Photowalk is still on for tonight!
It’s not a formal photowalk by any means. It’s just a chance for anyone who wants to get out shooting in the city to get together and have a good time.
We’ll be meeting at the front entrance to the Hyatt Regency Downtown Boston at 6:30pm tonight and go from there. It’s only a block off of the Tremont Street side of Boston Common.
So charge those batteries, format those cards and come on over and walk with us!

I’m now in Boston for the Internet Retailer Conference. Blogging might be a little light but I’ll do my best.
I’m here all week. Anyone up for a photowalk on Wednesday evening? We’re meeting at the Hyatt Regency Downtown – near Boston Common – at 6:30pm. Hope to see you there!
Remember to submit your photos now for both the June photo contest and the BIG Photo Contest

This Sunday I’ll be headed out to Boston for 4 days at the Internet Retailer Conference with some of my coworkers to learn more about marketing, SEO, and internet technologies.
We’re meeting this week to talk details of the trip and I’m sure the agenda and our plans as a group will be a topic of conversation but I am hoping to find some time to get out and shoot when I’m not in session or otherwise tied up with my colleagues.
If any of you are in the Boston area, or will be, between Monday and Thursday, let me know and we may be able to find some time to meetup. I’ll try to post updates to Twitter so you can know my availability throughout the week but please drop me an email to let me know if you’re interested and when might work for you.
Hope we can work something out!
