Zine or Book Suitable ?

I have been in dire need of coming up with a project in order to keep me focused on my photography; but, my thoughts about going off campus to make images doesn’t look promising.  That leaves me with the big question, what can I do instead.  

I have also been wanting to print some of my monochrome images but I have not yet settled on a subject or theme for a book or zine.  With my acquisition of the 45mm lens I’m now starting to wonder if I could collect enough images from around Homewood that I could use in a zine or book.

I have been collecting a few potential images, but I need to concentrate on a few subjects and see what I can collect this summer.  If I can make enough images to select from, I might be able to make a few zines this coming winter from the images I collect; but, I might already have enough images to at least make a test zine or book.  Regardless, if the above is a possibility, I should use my E-M5 III camera most of the time with prime lenses rather than my TG-6.

But, do I really want to make a book all in monochrome?  What about the subject matter?  What about the theme?  I really need to be clear with myself as to why I might want to do this.  The fact that I’m still dithering with such questions tells me that I’m not ready to commit yet.

    Most certainly do not have answers to all the questions, but as a bystander I would say a definite YES to a photo-book all in monochrome.
