No Words, #1 (New Project)

Well, a few words at first. Quite a few years ago, I helped start and participated in a no words forum where a photo would be posted and that image would convey or set a theme. Then others would post their photos interpreting that theme. No description, comments, or text allowed, only images. I really enjoyed the variety—images sometimes only tied to the theme by the most tenuous thread, other times with a resounding thematic link. It was always interesting to see what people considered the ‘theme’ and some of the interpretations would be quite intelligent.

So, I’ve decided to do this as an exercise. I’m doing it mainly as an exercise to shoot more, but also to post images that don’t fit in a gallery or collection. In other words, the random things I find that I like to photograph. Please hit Recommend or Share below if you like the image. Enjoy!

    I like the idea of individual photos on random subjects. I also like the “no words” approach. Sort of like poetry: if it needs an introduction, is that a sign that it does not stand on its own? And of course, it gives the viewer complete autonomy.

    I am smitten by No Words, #1! I may have to build a new wall to create a space to honor that intriguing gate!

      Hi Donna,

      Thank you for your kind comments! I’m excited about this project because it allows a lot of freedom from my normal subject-centric way of doing photography. Let’s hope for many new interesting images!
