Mundane Challenge - Recap
For this recap, I think saying less is more.
We all, myself especially, waxed poetic about what was mundane and what wasn’t, but in the end… whatever.
Thinking about what was mundane and what wasn’t was just to get you to open up and think more about your everyday world for inspiration.
What matters is taking interesting photos. And in the photographic world, mundane can be interesting, extremely interesting, but where the photo stands on the mundane-meter just doesn’t matter.
Here were the photos that stood out the most for me, although this was a hard challenge to choose, especially when thinking about my own biases for what was truly mundane.
My feelings were that the mundane photo be a scene of some sort – something everyday, but still a photo that felt like part of the everyday world.
Although you’ll see some great examples that slipped through that definition.
And it had to be a good photo. Something you’d want to look at. Even though I can see the argument for taking photos that people don’t want to look at.
The photos below to me were interesting, but showed objects with less of this context.
But they’re still interesting photos, and placed all together, I find the photos all grow together.
And here were the others that I thought stood out, although some hit higher on the mundane meter than others.
Next challenge will be announced in the next week!
