The Scavenger Project

Several months ago, I signed up to be part of the Scavenger Project, which is described as "a book in 24 parts created by you." I received a list of 24 things in the mail with the instructions to create images depicting them.

Being as I signed up for this project before I knew I'd be taking a class, I thought I'd have a whole lot of time and energy to put into it. Unfortunately, that ended up not being the case. But I did make the time to go through my photos and pick out thirteen good ones that fit the various descriptions.

So, here are my thirteen photos, most of which have already been posted on this blog:

home:



free space!:



fear:



everything will be okay:



childhood memories:



the end of the world:



self-help:



mini envelope #2 (This one needs some explaining. Enclosed with the list of things were two mini manila envelopes. The second one had nothing in it.)



in the middle:



in my past life I was a...



wild beasts:



unidentified flying objects:



the moment between sleep and awake:



All in all, this was a pretty fun project. It made me realize how desperately I need to organize my photos. Maybe someday when I'm not so bogged down with a ton of things to do, I'll take the time to do that. Until then, I'll just root around in my random photo folders and enjoy taking a chaotic detour.

You have a funny new cat. Mao? Is that the sound it makes or the famous Mao? Remember when you would bring your cat pic to Holly's class and make me crack-up? You are such a brat! So how many cats do you have now? Did you get moved into your new place? What class are you taking this quarter? I'm teaching critical thinking next semester, YAY!!
