2021 49 Common Object 1069 marco ciavolino post

Nails Hold the World Together

After some research I found that the single most common created object is nails. They have been used for millennia, in all forms, wooden, iron, steel, and more, to build nearly everything. No building has been constructed without the use of nails for some part of the construction. Thank you to Home Depot in Smyrna, GA for the use of their nail aisle (https://www.homedepot.com/l/Cumberland/GA/Atlanta/30339/121)

Assignment

A ball, a door handle, a fork - no, I haven't lost my mind, these are just a few common objects that we see all the time without batting an eye. So let's take a closer look at these details in our lives and make them the star of the show this week! In other words, let's make the ordinary become extra-ordinary.  Composition is key here - so try and arrange things in your shot to convey depth, emotion, or perhaps even a surreal, thought-provoking moment. It's up to you how much drama or story you want --do you want to get up close and personal to show only part of your subject by using a macro lens? Or will it look better if you zoomed out and placed things of context that subtly add to your story? Do you want to create something funny? Or perhaps something much more meaningful? Take your time, craft your story, and show us the common things in life that perhaps deserve a second look.
