Taking a Fresh Look at Everyday Objects.

When I saw the title of this week’s CFFC, my first thought was, “Oh, I think I’ll give this one a miss!”

I knew I didn’t have any pictures of plates, nor did I think I could work up any enthusiasm to create any.


……half way through the morning  I noticed the pattern made by some plates on racks in a kitchen cupboard.

On the shelf above were some little dipping bowls we use for olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

(It helped that the work surfaces and the tiles are black/dark grey; also that the light from the window was good.)

In another cupboard these little espresso cups were posing like this, so out they came too.

In all I really enjoyed my half hour playing around with these everyday objects.  I tried something minimalist with forks, but that one didn’t work.  Ah well, you win some and you lose some.

A million thanks to Cee for once again getting me to think outside the box with this week’s challenge:

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Dishes, Pots, Pans and Silverware.


I think I feel a mini-series coming on: “Everyday Objects” .

 I’ve not taken any Pots, Pans or Silverware yet, though the Silverware category might turn out to be Stainless Steel!

Fabulous collection Helen, who would have thought they could look so well

Gosh, Helen! I guess you found your enthusiasm. Those pictures are stunning!

    I gave myself a kick up the backside! Then thoroughly enjoyed my half hour in the kitchen with the camera. These challenges get me looking at things in a different way sometimes

      And what results!

        It was some kick LOL

I had to laugh Helen, your statement, sounds so much like me some days!
“I knew I didn’t have any pictures of plates, nor did I think I could work up any enthusiasm to create any.” LOL 🙂

Great minds think alike. the last several days I have been photographing “mundane” household objects too. Almost done processing. Trying for things other than beautiful flowers, with lines, curves and cracks. This post was good and came at a good time. 🙂
