A to Z Challenge: E is for Everyday (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, E is for Everyday. 

Wabi Sabi is about valuing imperfection, but it is also about seeing beauty in what is real and authentic, finding joy in the good, bad and the ugly.

I like to take pictures of the ordinary, without worrying if the ordinary looks nice or is symmetrical or pleasing to the eye.  Sometimes the original pictures work, but I like to play with post production to enhance the raggedness of ordinary.  And nothing does that better, for me, than black and white.

So here, for today’s wabi sabi, is the imperfection of the everyday.

Thanks for visiting my Letter E, A to Z Challenge post.  You can find links to more blogs participating in this challenge at Letter E, A to Z Challenge Master List (Google Docs).  Stay tuned for F is for… Tomorrow!!

  1. Very cool – I like the everyday pictures. I like the unposed, normal nature of them.

    • I’m all about the unposed – one of the reasons I don’t like taking pictures of people. I feel kind of creepy taking pictures without telling them, but if you tell them, they pose!

  2. Nice reflection of the building you have on the top photo! I like the door, too, Doors always get messed up, and that’s real life right there. 🙂

  3. I think the b/w give a really nice contrast. 🙂

  4. One of my favourite post so far. Besides, I’ll admit I have an inclination for b/w photos 🙂
