Images in the time of Coronavirus
After the success of the family based photography challenge, the A-Z of Isolation, in April and Images by the Dozen in May, with the added twist of not being able to use any numbers in the photos…we then moved onto 10 Ordinary Objects.
Some of these I’ve also been sharing on Instagram.
How it worked
We were invited to join the group, (no pressure was applied), and we received the list of 10 Ordinary Objects.
The challenge was to take ten photos in total, of ‘Ordinary Objects’ as listed below with my explanation in brackets:
- Something you eat (honey jumbles)
- Something you eat with (hands)
- Something you cook with (prong)
- Something you see with (camera)
- Something you put on your feet (yellow boots)
- Something you wash with (hand wash)
- Something you wear (scarves)
- Something you drink from (sippy cups)
- Something you find in the garden (leaves)
- Something (not someone) you love (view from my sunroom)
Just like the Alphabet and Numbers challenges, we had to decide what photos to take to represent each object according to the list. Then go out and take the photos!
Over a few Sunday nights, we all got together on Zoom and shared our photos from the week. It was a great way to stay connected, think outside the box and have some fun being creative. Everyone’s photos showed their creativity and the world around them.
It’s always great to see how others see things.
I always find these challenges just that, a challenge, which means I push myself to see the world a bit differently and to extend my thinking, but without overthinking it – if you get what I mean!!
Again, my talented sister and her husband are now compiling the photos into a magazine/book so we all have something to look back on from this time.
What was your favourite photo from this selection of Ordinary Objects?
So what’s next?
Our next project is Variations on a Theme! Stay tuned….
Hope all is going well with you.
