Mundane Monday #169: shadow

For this week Mundane Monday #169, a photograph with an interesting shadow. Or, a shadow of an idea or a shadow of an image…

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!

Add a message with your link and I will list all the sites next Monday.

From last week’s Mundane Monday #168: bee heaven, no other entries.

Have a delightful and not too shadowed week.

Mundane Monday #166: parent and child

My theme for Munday Monday #165 is parent and child.

I have this small statue in my clinic. I have a small collection of parent/child and mother/child art that I have collected for years. I was separated from my mother at birth, from my father and his family at 4 months and back to my mother and father at 9 months. I was sure that adults loved me but I did not trust them: they kept abandoning me.

As an adult I understand that it was because my mother had active tuberculosis and that the first separation saved my life. But…. I can love people, but trust must be earned.

A patient said last week that I had a political statement in my waiting room. “I do?” I said. He was talking about this statue.

If this is a political statement, I stand by it.

Attach your parent child picture, political statement or not. And much love and hope for every parent and child and love.

Mundane Monday #165: sand

Good morning, Mundane Monday Photographers! This crab is smaller than my littlest toenail, and has acres of dunes to cross at the very low tide. What does your Monday look like?

The theme last week was a use for hands:

If you have a mundane sandy picture, link and I will list them next week. Have a wonderful day no matter how many dunes you have to cross.

 

 

Mundane Monday #161: lighting

Welcome to Mundane Monday #161, shots of mundane objects that are not so mundane on second glance.

A lamp or a light could be mundane. It isn’t when the electricity goes out. Suddenly light and head and power become much less mundane and much more amazing.

This light is in the lobby of the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, and it is another example of the amazing glass art that is all over Tacoma.

Last week’s photographs for Mundane Monday: stairs. Published on Tuesday.

ColletteB responds with a beautiful staircase.

It’s Monday already somewhere in the world… I am posting before my Monday this week.

 

 

 

Mundane Monday #158: all of the squares

Welcome to Mundane Monday #158, today’s theme is “all of the squares”. That is from an AA Milne poem called Lines and Squares:

Whenever I walk in a London street,
I’m ever so careful to watch my feet;
And I keep in the squares,
And the masses of bears,
Who wait at the corners all ready to eat
The sillies who tread on the lines of the street
Go back to their lairs,
And I say to them, “Bears,
Just look how I’m walking in all the squares!”

Mundane Monday is an exercise in joy for me: look for a photograph to of something ordinary that also is arresting or brings up something like the above poem. Many thanks again to Trablogger for letting me continue the prompts. Here are his directions and suggestions for better shots: https://trablogger.com/better-your-photography-before-the-mundane-monday/. If you have a photograph on the prompt, link to this and next week I will list yours! Also, tell me if I miss anyone.

bottle joy

For photrablogger’s Mundane Monday: Bottles.

Here is a fabulous use for a bottle, to feed Tictoc and our other hummingbirds. We read and found that the Anna’s hummingbird winters in our area, so she is an Anna’s and we are not messing up migration.

The plastic bit at the top broke in high winds, so I improvised a hanger cage with picture wire. I can gently fold it back to refill the feeder when it is empty.

“Look, mom, no wings!” or maybe: “Hey, your camera cannot keep up with me!”
