I am no stranger to spending a lot of time thinking about one object and approaching it in different ways. When I took photography classes in high school, I would sit and shoot frame after frame of the same still life or object.

I still do that now with my iPhone, with a notable instance being on a photo walk with Laurie Klein back in 2013. I happened upon a birdhouse sitting on the ground and proceeded to take a series of photographs using both my DSLR and the Hipstamatic app on my phone.
