You Capture - Everyday Things

This You Capture was challenging for me only it wasn't. The challenge was in deciding whether or not it was okay to photograph things that were 'everyday' to me but probably not to everybody else. So I decided to do a mix.

For example. Everyday items for me (because they're found at Striebel Pond):

And everyday items for most people:

Everyday items to me and everybody else (because there are 60 katrillion of these in North America).

Then everyday items to me again:

And to everybody else again:

And then this picture has elements of both in it. The swans are everyday to me and the fence is everyday to everybody.

Everyday to most people (hopefully):

There you have it. My versions of everyday pictures. For more, visit Beth at ishouldbefoldinglaundry.

  18. Nice! The reflecting bridge is my fave though. Then the water fountain and the bench. Isn't it cool how photography makes us really see stuff? Who knew a water fountain could look so awesome?
