In an attempt to find photo projects that I can fit into my schedule, I came up with the idea to do a photo walk around a single city block as a format that could be repeated. This was after some particularly strong and good coffee from Lamplighter on South Addison Street in Richmond, Virginia on a day I took off for myself.
A few self-imposed rules for this “Photo Block” format:
- Start on one street, and walk around the block taking pictures, finishing on the last street of the block without returning to the starting street.
- When editing the photos, experiment with colors, filters, crops etc.; the set does not need to have the same editing applied across all photos.
- When posting the photos, the title should be in the format of “City: Street Name, Street Name, … (Month Year)” [not all blocks have four streets of course].
- When posting the photos, they should be posted in the order shot — this is the order in which my eye saw the street around me.
