When life gives you lemons, make some lemonade.
Thus the saying goes. And I say, when there’s brownout (power cut-off), take some photos.
So what else is there to do when it’s raining, with a pestering brownout to boot – almost eight-hours long. You take photos, just like I did. Thus, during yesterday’s heavy afternoon downpour that led to that long power cut-off, I busied myself with my simple phone camera looking for interesting angles, textures and patterns.
And here they are. Be warned though; they’re not pro. These are just snapshots meant to amuse, and let the creative juice flow. Just my way of finding beauty in the mundane – just as in my previous post with the same title– even during a heavy rain.
Finding contentment, seeing beauty even in the most mundane…
I enjoy looking at beautiful landscapes. They make for great photographs, especially sweeping panoramas – of mountains, fields, the sea.
Yet, as I spend more time developing my photography skills, I discover so much beauty in the mundane as well.
“I have always been caught by the pull of the unremarkable, by the easily missed, infinitely nourishing beauty of the mundane.”
