Lens-Artists Challenge: Everyday Objects

Lens-Artists Challenge #111: Everyday Objects

…we’re challenging you to take another look at everyday objects and see them from a new perspective…

vase

It’s not often one admires a vase without the flowers or single bud on display. But this vase does fine all alone. It originally belonged to my mother-in-law (a gift from my husband to her years before I knew him). I am glad we saved it. It reminds me of her.

baking tools

This pie pan had been my mother’s, but originally was passed down to her from her grandmother. If I remember correctly. Add in the peeler and corer and you’re halfway (well almost halfway) to making an apple pie.

watches old & new

Last but not least…going way back in the way-back machine…these are my wristwatches. I’ve been wearing a watch since I was at least 5 years old beginning with this Mickey Mouse watch. I don’t imagine I could really tell time when I first wore it, but the significance of knowing the time took root in my psyche. Which Mickey has frozen forever at 6:36.

The watch I wear now is a simple Timex with one of those twistable bands. Every few years I need a new one, but otherwise it does what it’s supposed to do. I glance down and know the time.

It is truly my most “everyday object.”

  1. Love the sentimental value of your choices this week OLU. That vase is really lovely. As for watches, I received a beautiful Rolex as an award many years ago. I’ve had it repaired twice and each time I’ve thought I could have bought 4 or 5 Timex’s for what the repairs cost, never mind the watch! I’ve repaired it for the last time, that’s for sure!!! Now I wear a Versa smartwatch which cost $100 or so and I love it! πŸ˜€. The Rolex sits in the drawer

    1. Thank you Tina. That vase is a favorite. And I’ve always had good luck with the Timex watches – the style has stayed relatively constant. And you’re right about the cost part (and it never ends up in a drawer!) A smartwatch is tempting though πŸ™‚.

  2. LOVE the vase, looks like cobalt blue beneath the white, which is one of my fave blues. The time pieces are interesting…I’m wondering if there is significance to “6:36” in the grand scheme of things…

      1. Maybe I watch too much “Twilight Zone”…in reference to a clock stopped at 6:36 πŸ™‚ But I dare say it’s food for a story!

    1. Thank you Patti. When the light is just right, that vase almost glows! Glad Mickey brought you a smile too πŸ™‚ (these are times I’m glad I held onto the “old stuff”)
