Photo challenge - An Uncommon View of Something Common

Well, we had some great contributions to the challenge this month. It is amazing what things are around us that we look at every day, but don't really take notice of. I enjoyed this challenge because it made me look all around my house to find something that we all see.

First of all, here are your contributions. Each of them made me scratch my head a bit as I tried to work out what they are, then as soon as I realised, they made me smile! Brilliant work and each of you have made brilliant interpretations of the theme.

Ella from Ella Unread took this fantastic picture of the Manhattan skyline.... Or is it? Hmmmmmmmm.......

Matt from MattRKarting took this great photo of lots of lines? or is it wood grain? or is it..... Hmmmmmmm?

Caroline Ryder took this photograph of one of my favourite objects.... I wonder what it is?.... hiccup!!! :)



Great work everybody!!! Perfectly fitting for the challenge!

When trying to come up with a photo for this challenge, I was cooking one of my favourite meals. Suddenly I was reminded of a photograph that I took a couple of years ago, so I thought I would attempt it again. See if you can guess what it is, before scrolling down to the answer....



Yes, I know... it is an easy one...lol! A starburst!!!!









And now for the photo reveal....


A bird's eye view of spaghetti in a wine glass.

I love the shape the spaghetti forms in your hand just before you put it in the boiling water. It was calling out to be photographed. I am sure you will be pleased to know that I did eventually put my camera down and eat my dinner....hehehe!

Thank you all for your great photos. Keep your eyes peeled for the next challenge, appearing during this week!!!!

Bye for now,

Graham :)

Wish I could have participated but I barely used the Internet while in Europe!

We must have missed each other when in London. We went to Covent Garden and I looked for you in the pub but couldn't find you. We were a bit late (15 min.?) because of the crowd. I had no phone, so it made things trickier...
