The Garage

I’m working on a new art project.

My in-laws own an industrial-size garage on the outskirts of Kitchener-Waterloo.

Tomorrow there’s a gathering the garage and I’m going so I can photograph the garage and capture memories.

I don’t do many art projects so to maintain the artist bent to the day I’m taking the Olympus Pen cameras and lenses (along with a big tripod).

What I am seeing in my mind’s eye are shots that feature the garage which has been the meeting place in the small community for several generations.

When I’m finished I hope to have one image of the building suitable for printing and framing. And then, if I’m lucky, I hope to have enough images of the garage to either create a gallery display or perhaps print a book. Likely I’ll convert everything to black and white or sepia tone the prints.

We’ll see what happens but you can see I already have a vision of what I want to accomplish.

This is so different from special-event photography where we shoot our brains out and see later what we’ve got.
