sarah digs deeper – month one, part two

January 30, 2010

Yesterday’s mail was slightly larger than the bed of my scanner…


January 2010

To: Jeff
Subject: The Art of Waiting – January’s wait.
CC: My fellow waiters
The waiting has been quite routine thus far, although I’m expecting to delve a bit deeper into some of the asp different aspects I had brainstormed as the month progresses. I’ve instinctively been going along in a journal-like fashion, documenting the date & minor details of each photo I take. Then I forgot that the film in my LCA+ has been my project film & snapped a few pictures of my cats; turns out I will have to wait until next year to see them. 🙂 This made me wonder: what would happen if I took some really important, hopefully really amazing and/or planned out shots on one of my “waiting” rolls, intentionally forcing myself into NOT being able to see results (that I would of course be dying to see) until 2011? Is this what everyone is doing? This month has been an exploration of the instinctual/surface level, denotative type of waiting; I have [automatically] started out basic. My next gol goal is to do some more of this whole “tricking-myself-into-waiting-for-the-results” type of stuff, my initial attempt at going a bit deeper into just how the waiting really does affect me. Will keep in touch!

Sincerely, Sarah
