Mundane Monday #184: rats

For Mundane Monday # 184, my theme is rats.

Any sort of rat. You dirty rat. Rats, this is not working.

The photograph is a pet rat. He is gone now, moved on to another plane. In memorium. He was very sweet.

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!

Mundane Monday #181: shadow

For Mundane Monday #181, my theme is shadow. Halloween is approaching, yesterday was gloriously sunny in the afternoon here, but the shadows are darkest when the sun is brightest. Contrast. I took this from a downtown restaurant balcony, out over the water.

What shadows and contrasts have you photographed? Send your link or a message, and they will be posted next week.

From last week, Mundane Monday #180: fall coral.

KL Allendorfer with real coral.

Mondane Monday #180: fall coral.

These are coral mushrooms. J said he can’t remember which color is edible so we didn’t eat any. We saw yellow and white too. We were on the Tunnel Creek trail in the Olympic National Forest.

Fall coral could be color or coral or …. something else. Message your blog or do a pingback if you want to join! I will list the entries next Monday.

Last Monday was Without words.

KL Allendorfer wrote Wordless Cat, with lots of photographs!

Mundane Monday #178: light and dark

For Mondane Monday #178, a light and dark theme. I like the combination of the silhouette with the reflection. I took this on the Seattle Bainbridge ferry Friday. I saw th reflection and then had to move around to catch the effect.

What combination of light and dark appeals to you?

Last weeks Mundane Monday was creature built.

 

 

Mundane Monday #176: bones

For Mundane Monday #176: bones.

This is from the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium, in the Port of Debuque, Iowa. We had eight people in two vans, age range from 8 to 75, and drove there from Wisconsin. It was really excellent and something for everyone. A DiVinci exhibition, live alligators, this alligator snapping turtle skeleton, river boats and history.

What bones inspire you? The snapper was about four feet long, beak to tail, and the jaws and beak is very impressive. I’ve seen a pair of live ones in the wild on the outer banks of Virginia.

Link or message your Mundane Monday bone contribution and I will list them next week.

From Mundane Monday 175: line up:

KL Allendorfer finds lines in nature and …. frogs.
