The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: (Extra)ordinary – Mundane and meaningful objects. Beautiful everyday things. This week, surprise us with something or someone (extra)ordinary
Seeing the world through a lens is as second nature to some of us as changing our underwear.
Would you leave the house without changing your underwear?
No…nor I think, would you leave the house without your third eye…correct?
Anyway…for people like us, (the underwear changing kind) seeing the Extra in the Ordinary is really just a matter of perspective.
We see it everywhere in every thing…eventually.
Sometimes, it’s in the reason we stop and shoot.
And sometimes, it’s in the 5th or 10th or 30th shot with minute changes in a particular subject.
But most of the time (at least for me) it’s often just a change of perspective…moving my focus, moving my feet, or just plain, being moved.
Below are some of my photos that I believe are Extra-ordinary. Not because they are great photos, because they are not. Some are pretty good, some are damned good, but some are just okay.
And I’m good with that. What I appreciate about all of them, is that by changing my perspective, choosing to shoot in less than favorable conditions, or focusing on the emotion of them and therefore hopefully translating it to the picture, more often than not, bring out the Extra in some of the more everyday, mundane, and ‘it’s just a sunset’, pictures.
Thanks for looking and here’s to more of the Extra in all of our Ordinaries.
And by all means, click on the photos to get the ‘extra’ full size effect. lol
