Inner Vision: 56 - 60

Day 56: My Block
My third walk around my block, camera in hand and Carl in tow. Colorful scooters caught my eyes - colors and hues what a surprise!

When: 16 May
Where: my block, South Beach
Inner Thoughts: I think I'm starting to get it now, thanks to a walk around the block with Carl.

Jennifer Kay is a Miami-based reporter for The Associated Press who has enrolled in Iris' IPC Visual Lab. Before moving to Miami in 2005, Kay was an editorial assistant in the AP’s Philadelphia bureau, and previously graduated in 2001 from Dartmouth College, where she was the photography editor of the daily student newspaper. Kay is looking to expand her knowledge of the visual language and to engage in the process of visual story-telling. Her blog will be a common feature for the next several month on the Iris PhotoCollective's Iris Rising series.

Day 57: Game
A tighter crop (sense a theme in this batch of daily frames?) draws the focus to the game that's just begun.

When: 18 May, 5:36 p.m.
Where: poolside, South Beach
What: A game of hide-and-seek begins.

Days 58-59: Blanks
Something interesting probably happened on these days, but I was too preoccupied to pick up a camera to capture it. Photo student failed.

Day 60: Mayor
I tried to fit in photographing someone I was interviewing at a conference before he had to leave. What I didn't anticipate was how routine the experience might be for him, a public figure in Haiti. As soon as I pulled out my camera, he began a series of "official poses" that he's probably accustomed to making before or after interviews at home. It was very formal, and I was kind of at a loss as to how I would make a portrait that was interesting while he was taking up what little time we had with his posing.

When: 20 May, 10:37 a.m.
Where: Florida Governor's Hurricane Conference, Broward County Convention Center, Fort Lauderdale
Who: Yvon Jerome, mayor of Carrefour, Haiti
Inner Thoughts: I'm trying to taking pictures of the people I'm covering, but under the time crunch this just came out as a headshot.
