Random Photos – Week 46/15

I realised yesterday morning as I though about this weeks post that I had fallen into a rut – a rut of beauty!  Beautiful flowers mostly.  So this week I decided to push out of my comfort zone and show photos of things that I don’t think are intrinsically beautiful.  I have to say I am really happy with most of them, happy that when I looked closer I found something beautiful in each photo.  What do you think?

      Thanks Ruth, yes sometimes when you look closer there is a different kind of beauty to see.

      Thanks. I did wonder about that one, I love them in colour in real life, but when I photograph them they never have that impact. When I made it b&W I thought it added a bit more interest.

    Each one is beautiful in its own right. I went out of my comfort zone awhile back and photographed a fly swatter with interesting lighting and was amazed how it turned out. I did especially like the ‘creek bubbles.’ So unique.

      Thanks Olga. It is easy to stay in that comfort zone, and harder to start looking at things differently. I’m going to try much harder now to see what else might catch my eye.

    Nicely captured! I especially like the horseshoes. Always fun to discover beauty in unexpected places.

      Yes. I think that is what makes photography interesting, sometimes you can make it more with just a little tweak.

    🙂 I think you ‘should’ do this more often 🙂
    ‘Should’ in ”s because I don’t like telling people what I think they should do, but those pictures are a whole lot more interesting than the flowers (which are admittedly definitely beautiful)..

      That’s what I thought too, but I must admit the flowers draw me in with their simple beauty. I’ll be trying to do more different stuff from now on, as i did in the beginning.

    I like these, especially the ladder, bubbles on the creek and the horseshoes because to me they all tell me a story, as well as being good pics!
    But of course there’s nothing wrong with flower pics,a s you know i would think! {Was gong to put some on my blog again but maybe not…..?

      Ah, go ahead, flowers are beautiful and to be admired. I just felt I was getting lazy. My favourite is the ladder.

    You’ve certainly come up with some beautiful photos this week, Claudette. Each one has its own beauty. The Iron Arch with the cobweb is my favourite but it’s great to see you come out of your comfort zone.

      Thanks Hugh. I do ge some lovely cobwebs on that arch, and in winter they look superb with the frost on them.

    I love the weathered wood, with that little hint of blue paint. Lovely collection. All your photos are enjoyable, no matter what they are.

      Sometimes the very plain things are interesting when you really stop to look. That board used to be part of an old fashioned long swing at my local park. When it was dismantled i asked for it and then cut it into two to make two benches, painted it blue to match my house. Now, many years later there isn’t much blue left, but I still remember the swing.

        Lovely! I spotted the bench later on in one of your other images. Oh, yes – long swings! Memories. 🙂
