Lens-Artists Challenge #169 – The Ordinary

Ordinary is a funny word – because if you think about it there is not much ordinary out there. And life itself is pretty extraordinary.

A crow in a leafless tree can seem pretty ordinary, but I still find the image pleasing.

A dying piece of tree, can still be beautiful.

The boat above looks like a pretty ordinary fishing boat, but add a bit of sunshine and water and this is the result.

As many have already said, as photographers we get to see that extra something in the ordinary.

Lens-Artists Challenge #168 – Seen Better Days

There is still beauty in things that have seen better days. I liked Tina’s monochrome images so decided to follow her example.

Here an old fence post slowly returning to nature.

An old boat that has probably not been used for some time.

And finally the detail of an old cottage window.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge #103 – Surprise

I took this photo because I liked the look of the water, chain and blue of the boat. But I was surprised to find when I downloaded it onto my computer that the chain and boat had a number of damselflies sitting on them – some looking to be recently emerged.

Boat and chain

A cropped image shows them slightly more clearly.
