Weekly Photo Challenge … Everyday!

September 18, 2012

When I saw this week’s photo challenge I was almost pleased;  because I ‘do’ everyday!  The world according to Nela Bligh is my oyster.  I will simply take my camera to work.  Whilst it is not easy to photograph myself ‘doing’ everyday things; surely I can create an image that expresses my busy-iness.  As you know I am not a photographer; I do not keep a stash of photos, ‘ I did earlier’ to post as if fresh and new.  I have no illusions of ‘their’ lasting qualities.
So my response is always almost immediate;  Monday I prepare to post at 5am on Tuesday.
So with a nice challenge I find myself on Monday morning not at work among a bunch of everyday images; but instead at home nursing a throbbing ear ache and the remains of an infection, weak and wobbly.  Struggling to get out of bed; let alone consider an image that will rock the Word Press fraternity!
Then I remember a spider I had seen down the garden the day before; making a web and lording it in the centre … an everyday for a spider! I venture out to find him in the sun; but he scurries away as I  set up.  Next door’s cat comes over the wall and does everyday things that I find less attractive and I shoo him off.
So the spider has no desire to perform his everyday life,  I go back.  I take a picture of myself taking a picture of the washing up! We all do that don’t we? Everyday!

I did take some pictures of the spider … I will never will never be a photographer of creatures … you have to have patience and huge skill which I loudly applaud.
