Beauty in the Everyday: Weekly Photography Challenge


Bottles, flowers, water drops & colourYesterday I showcased an image collection of 30 fabulous photos of pencils in an attempt to show how sometimes the every day objects around us can provide photographic inspiration.

Today I thought it might be good to make this the theme of our weekly challenge. Your challenge is to take an share a photo with the theme of:

Beauty in the Everyday

I’ll let you interpret that theme any way that you wish but encourage you to carry your camera everywhere with you for at least a day or two and allow yourself to slow down and look for those beautiful things around you that you might normally rush past.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Beauty in the Everyday’ shots we’d love to see them in comments below. Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section as pictured below) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSEVERYDAYBEAUTY to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Bugs Eye View challenge – there were some fantastic shots submitted.

    Reminds me of a ballerina. Beautiful with the gray background and the slightly pink upper right corner which reminds me of the sun coming out from behind the clouds.
