30 Doors a Day
In general, an individual walks through more than 30 doors a day, every day. So over 80 years that is 876,000 doors. These are important doors in my life: Our front door, our back door, the door to our family room through which 100's of friends have passed, the door to parent's senior facility, our shed which houses our power stuff, and the local grocery store. What doors are part of your life?
The mundane is anything that is ordinary or not really important or special. Those small things or moments that make up our lives that we do not really pay attention to. When you think about it, however, those small and seemingly insignificant things play a large role in making us the people that we are.As photographers, we are constantly honing our skills to show viewers the world as we see it. This week we are going to put together an album showing the hidden beauty of a mundane (seemingly) subject or moment. That unexpected splash of color of a flower growing from a concrete wall, a teenage couple holding hands in a supermarket aisle, passersby patting the head of a friendly dog or the washing on a line flapping in the wind. We sometimes forget how wonderful and intriguing our everyday life is. Luckily we have challenges such as these to open our eyes a little bit wider!
