starting a new weekly series - 'mundane monday'

some months ago i started a weekly routine of taking a photo every monday. not that i dont take pics on other days, but to give myself a specific task, i decided on a 'mundane monday' theme. i decided that these would be photos to capture the everyday things that i see around me, around the house. no nature photos, no  outdoor locations. it is just an exercise that serves as a reminder of the fact that even the most mundane objects look beautiful when viewed from a different perspective.

and today, i realise i have reached 25 weeks of photos. there are some weeks left out in between when i have been travelling or sick, but there are 25 photos as of today, and i hope i shall be able to continue it for a long time to come. there have been weeks where i would have no clue of what i was going to photograph, till the evening, but somehow something would present itself before me and inspiration would spring from nowhere.

so far i have posted these pics on picasa web albums, but starting today i've decided that i will also post it on the blog here, with a link to the picasa web album.

today's picture is that of my measuring cups. i have used the 'focal b&w' option in picasa so that only the markings appear in colour, on the white cups.

see my previous photos of mundane mondays so far, on my picasa album here

p.s : i realised i posted this on photo finish just as the clock struck 12, so it ended up becoming tuesday :)

  1. You should also have a section on each photo that says what touches you did on each picture.

    Apart from appreciating your pictures, we would also learn on why you did what you did.

    1. i do very little to my pictures beyond basic adjustments for brightness, shadows and saturation... if i use any other effects, will mention that... you can see in this one i have mentioned the focal b&w effect in picasa. as of now, picasa is the only editing tool i use.
