Mundane Monday #204: detail

For Mundane Monday #204, my theme is detail.

I think the minimal color palette shows off the detail of the duck’s feathers and of the grasses. She was also very calm. I walked to the edge of Kai Tai Lagoon and didn’t see her next to me until I was standing there. She held very still in the sun.

Attach your photograph or photographs with detail that you enjoy or fascinates you. I will list them next week. And thanks for the get will wishes re influenza!

Last week’s repeating themes.

Brian Dodd at bushboy’s world finds multiple repeating themes.




Mundane Monday #200: crop.

For Mundane Monday #200, my prompt is crop.

My subject, this hummingbird, has a crop. But I also cropped the photograph. And are we planning crops for the spring? There are other sorts of crops.

Tell us and show us a photograph that uses crop. I will list them next week.

Last week’s prompt was portal.

A new contributor bushboy adds a beautiful portal.

The Photo Junkie also joins with a portal in stone.

KLAllendorfer has photographs that are an Edinburgh portal.

I wondered last week if I should end this version of Mundane Monday with number 200. But I had not given warning, nor asked if someone wants to take over and anyhow, I thought, it gives me joy on Monday. Maybe it does for others too and isn’t one enough? So many thanks to the people reading and the old and new entries.

The theme for Mundane Monday 187 is warm.

Mundane Monday #183: getting ready

For Mundane Monday #183: getting ready.

This organized chaos is from 2010. I am thinking about parents and kids. Here we were getting ready for our yearly synchronized swim team show. This involves painting the hair to stay in place with thick very warm gelatin. We did that outside. It’s messy.  Synchronized swimming might not be mundane to you but we all have times when we get ready or help others get ready.

My daughter is the one on the left: mom, you are bugging us.

Ready. Pretty much. With a little trepidation.

And ready hair.

And the whole team in the water, in the finale, hooray, we did it!
