Photo Dump

“Most people don't take snapshots of the little things. The used Band-Aid, the guy at the gas station, the wasp on the Jell-O.
But these are the things that make up the true picture of our lives. People don't take pictures of these things.”
- Robin Williams as Sy Parrish in One Hour Photo -

Well, I’m certainly one of those people; the type that take pictures of the little things. Because they truly make up the picture of my life on a daily basis. One simple moment at a time.

Here are this week’s ordinary photos...

Windows and reflections.

A couple's reflection in the water.

Taking a solitary swim in calm water.

Power lines.

A feathered friend posing for the camera.

Suburbia reflections.

The beautiful bloom of a magnolia tree.

Making a splash.

A spot of sunshine in the water.

Suburbia at sunset.

Have a great day, blog pals!

  1. The 'ordinary' is the best, Martha. These are all the ordinary things we pass by in our lives every day without notice, mostly. But when we stop/pause and take a look we see that this is what life is all about.

    1. You bet, Jim. Ordinary things are what make up a big chunk of my life. And I'm not complaining when I say that!

  3. You are right - it's the little every day moments that are the most beautiful to capture on camera. LOVE the couple's reflection in the pond and also the pic of the beautiful robin :)

  4. Your photos are beautiful as usual. They may be every day moments, but apparently you see beauty around you. Great job!

    1. Thanks for that! I think you do the same. Carrying a camera around at all times is vital in capturing these moments.

  5. I'm with you Martha!
    Anything and everything are my subjects...
    Great examples of ordinary...no, extraordinary things!
    Cheers!

  7. These pictures are amazing! You have such a great eye for the moment and the scenery. I love them all :) As for taking pics of the little every day things - that's what I use my iPhone for - way too many times a day ;) I agree 100% though - those are the pictures that tell about our lives :)

    1. Well, I don't have an iPhone, but I do carry a compact camera in my purse all the time. I never leave home without it. You just never know what you'll run across.

    1. Thank you, Margie. It is a pastime that brings me a lot of joy. I guess it's my way of meditating.

    1. Magnolia trees are gorgeous when they're in bloom. And both yellow and white are so pretty. Actually, any colour blooms on magnolias is fabulous!

    1. I love taking shots of windows, especially when there are reflections. I've been really busy lately, and haven't had much time for photography, but today I made it a point of stepping outside in the garden to take some shots. I really needed that creative break!

      Delete
    2. Creative breaks, even from creative projects are so wonderful to take. Glad you took one.

      Right now as I type, I have a test batch of mini cinnamon rolls in the Easy Bake Oven.

    3. Mini cinnamon rolls! YUMMY! We are all fans of that here. But preferably homemade. I've tried commercial types, and I don't like them.

  13. Suburbia reflections! Awesome! You should enter that in a show! Loved them all but that one was my favourite!
