This week it’s Patti’s turn to challenge us and she has chosen the topic “everyday objects” because she recently started unpacking stored things packaged about two years ago.
So, let’s try and have a look, what I found in my archive.
Children are eager to pick them, but adults usually don’t pay attention on chestnuts on the ground, especially when wet.
This is a carder wool bee. We don’t notice them while they are working. But, we’re happy when we get fruits as a result of their successful work.
We’re also happy when all of our machines work properly. We only pay attention, when something goes wrong.
Have you ever seen straws like this??
What do you see? It’s a toy for very small kids. The can learn to grasp.
Insects are annoying. But, did you ever saw their beauty?
When you’re going in the city, have a look up along the buildings. It’s often interesting how they are constructed.
Everyone is every now and then waiting at a bus stop. See, how the night can change the appearance. Light changes everything. Open up your eyes and see!
Guess, what I have here for you!
Five eggs in their box. Were you right?
A candle enlights a room. But, what happens when you blow out the flame?
You’re sitting in front of a computer, right? See, what’s inside of it!
Fall again. The hazelnuts are ripe. Without color, it looks unfamiliar, right?
Did your eyes follow the pipes? Do so. Look, where they will lead you!
Old buildings usually have beautiful staircases. Count the floors and wonder!
A straightened light works out the shape of the keys.
You can have so much fun when looking carefully at the surroundings. Change the way you look at them. Change the light and / or the position of your eyes.
A very special kind of seeing the world around you in a different kind is converting your camera to ‘see’ either infrared or ultra-violet.

A plethora of beautiful examples of really seeing things around us. When we lived in Ohio, we called chestnuts Buckeyes.
Thanks, Janet 😊“buckeye“ interesting
Loving the trick photos that you have. 👍🏼
A dazzling array of artistry Andre! So many favorites including the key, the eggs (got it wrong on that one) the trail of smoke, and especially your image of the B&W child’s ball. That one is superb. Wonderful response.
thank you so much, Tina.
I’m going to echo Tina, Andre. This is an exceptional collection of images. Fabulous work!
thank you so much, Patti. I’m feeling really flattered 🙂
Wow. OUTSTANDING selections. Very well done. ‘Creative’, too!
Thank you so much, John 😊
Much thought put into this, Andre – and what a splendid outcome! Well done!
Thank you so much, Leya 😊
This is excellent. You give another perspective to things that many of us take for granted. Chestnuts are never taken for granted here as there are fetes specifically for chestnuts.
😊 thanks, Léa. And, the European chestnut is about to get extinct. A kind of moth and a fungus are attacking them. On the other hand, the American chestnut is immune for both attackers. So, in a couple of years we probably only see pink blooming chestnut trees and no whites anymore
And of course the American ones won’t be fit for consumption due to the GMO’s.
hmm, as far as I know, only marons are eatable. Chestnuts are only for deers, horses, and wild boar
