Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #169: The Ordinary

This week, our guest host  I. J. Khanewala encourages us to join the ordinary theme challenge, “… as you look around and begin to assess everything as a photo. Suddenly parts of the ordinary no longer look mundane.” Here is some experiences I had.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

― Elliott Erwitt

“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”

Matt Hardy

After spreading some of my cooking spices, herbs… for photographing,  they begin to look quite interesting.

I agree, IJ, seeing and capturing in photo the ordinary is a delightful experience. 🙂

Special thanks to Tina for her last week “Seen Better Days”challenge. We have seen your beautiful ways to express through your lens.

We hope you’ll join us this week’s theme hosted by I. J. Khanewala (DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH). Please include a link to IJ’s post, click here and use the Lens-Artists tag so we can all find you in the Reader.

Next week, Patti will lead the challenge on Saturday, October 16

  1. Great examples all, but I really like the third one of the wooden posts best. I, too, like taking close-ups of wood — trunks, building materials, twigs, etc. There’s something about the natural curves, rings, and textures that are so appealing!

  6. Your choices are amazing, Amy. I can see now the thoughts behind the ‘Ordinary’ challenge.
    The light on the palm fronds in the first photo is a phenominal capture. I do like B&W pics a lot, too.
    The colored pencils is my fav. The simplicity of your photo is outstanding. Nicely done … Be safe 😷

  7. Hi Amy

    Your image of the colored pencils lined up on a row makes my inner child want to come out to play. And I mentioned earlier, your cooking spices and herbs is an excellent photo and makes me wish for a Lens Artist foodie topic down the road!

    Here’s my offering for The Ordinary Lens Artist challenge:
