”For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #111, we’re taking a fresh look at ordinary, everyday objects–things that you see and use in your daily life.”
Patti is our host for the challenge, and we are looking forward to seeing your creative response!
My start is the old silver box from my husband’s mother. I haven’t changed its position for the image, but, inspired by Patti, I put my garnets there, to pick up the colours of the faded rose. In the header it stands in late evening light – here in ordinary daylight. Quite a change – light and the photographer’s position sets the mood.
If you read my blog now and then, you know I have two real dogs, but also some other dogs and cats, hiding among my house plants…
These are my two favourites – both left to me by Anita, a beloved friend who passed away some years ago.
They are hiding in different places depending on what plants I have for them. The lovely blue cat was one of Anita’s special favourites – and yesterday she was hiding behind a Medinilla Magnifica. I think she loved it!
Finally, my scary friends in the blue box – always hiding – seemingly frightened – put there and painted by Lena, a very good friend of mine. Can you see just how scared they are? I even helped them look a bit shaky…
A special thanks to Tina for hosting last week’s Creativity in the Time of Covid challenge. A great theme, that really showed us many creative ideas on how to cope with and manage these difficult times. I think we all learned something new and picked up more tricks to stay creative throughout! Well done All of us – together we will meet the future, stronger!
Next challenge, #112, I (Ann-Christine/Leya) will be your host. Stay creative and stay well – and be kind, also to yourself.

The cat and dog are adorable!
Aren’t they just? Glad you like them!
Wow – yes, the light really changes the mood and presentation of the silver box photo(s). Finding the right light can be the biggest challenge and make all the difference. I enjoyed the hidden pets – including the scared ones too! 🙂
So glad you enjoyed the post! I thought it was rather fun to do the challenge. Opens your eyes again!
Yes it does – for your readers too 🙂
the first picture tells a great story, Ann-Christine! your dogs, real or not, are beautiful! and the cats, too! 🙂
♥ Thank you!
Darlin, there is nothing everyday and ordinary about you! That header says it all. A class act 🙂 🙂
Blushing, blushing – Jo!!! ♥
Excellent closeups. The silver box is a favorite. Well done.
Thank you, John – I am glad, because I hardly look at that beautiful box, I pass it several times a day…That is just one reason to why this challenge is a good one! New eyes!
Love the header shot, a real contrast in colour & feel compared to the daylight shot 😃
I thought I had to show what difference light made – and perspective. Thanks!
I really liked the dog sculpture. So cute!
Good, I like it too. I had a friend who owned such a breed – loved him.
I love your silver box with the garnet necklace. It’s so elegant, it hardly looks every day. How wonderful to have the sweet presents from your friend Anita. I especially love the blue cat. Have a wonderful week, A.C. 🙂
Thank you for popping in, Marsha! The silver box is indeed an heirloom, but it is standing there every day, mostly unnoticed. What is not everyday is the necklace, because it is hidden in a locker and never used. I thought it would look nice on the box…I have given it to my daughter once – when she left high school. But I keep it here until she has graduated from uni.
My mom had a silver box, not that fancy or big, very tarnished, but I loved checking out the old jewelry. She never wore jewelry because of allergies, but had a few pieces from grandmothers.
I also used to love looking at jewelry, not fancy at all, but still. Childhood dreams!
That makes it special, Leya. 🙂
You have some tender photos for this week. I really like your take on the challenge 😀
Thank you, Cee – I just have to include my dear friends…and gifts are treasured whenever I look at them!
I am so glad you included some of your animal friends amidst your beautiful plants! Wonderful. And your garnets and the gorgeous silver box. Wow! Beautiful, A-C! I really enjoyed your collection. I hope you have a peaceful and happy week.
Thank you, Patti – this is a fun and uplifting challenge that makes us take another look at what we have in our nearest rooms!
I’m glad it’s uplifting. I think we all need some of that now.
Aw, such fun objects you have, thank you for sharing with us. I really love the blue cat, that’s so sweet that you move it around the house plants.
Thank you for reading and commenting! Well, I have to see to it that my friends in the house are doing well, don’t I…
You’re welcome. Yes, indeed :-)!
Your home sings the songs of colors, joy, magic, love, and light
That is just a such a lovely comment, Brenda. It made me happy♥
I remember you talking about your friend and the things she gave you. I love that scary blue box image … really lovely, but also a humorous take on the everyday objects.
I thought we all needed some humourous thoughts!
You … where so right *smile
Hope your weekend is going well. 🙂
Yours as well, Amy. We have to hang on!
Great selections, AC! The image of the silver box and garnets is beautiful.
Your scary friends are so much fun. 🙂 🙂 H
Glad you like my choices, Amy! Those scared guys are always keeping an eye on me…
I love them all. The silver box in the header is my favorite.
Thank you, that silver box is an heirloom.
Love your scary friends! They actually managed to scare you with a shake 😂
Really like your creative take on the scary friends shot…they do look afraid as you said. But I don’t think they are scary 😂 Wonder what they are afraid of. Happy weekend, and have a good week ahead, Leya.
Ha, thanks Mabel – I think they are afraid of Me…
And wishing you a good week too!
Oh, I love your take on the everyday, Ann Christine!
Love your cats and dogs hidden!
Thank you, Ana, glad to be reminded they are there!
Great remembrance from family and friends. But I love the shake on those scary friends of yours Anne-Christine haha
Ha, thanks – they are always staring at me, so I had to shake them up a bit…
Haha that’s good!
Beautiful images Ann Christine! Your choices are perfect.
Thank you, Anne – not many still life pictures I do, but trying is fun.
Lovely choices Ann-Christine. Your husband’s mother’s box image is just so lovely! And I love that you treasure your friend’s dog gifts. I’m sure they love your flowers!
Thank you, Tina. And I think of Anita every time I look at them.
A good lesson for us as we think about our own futures and how we’d like to be remembered A-C
Lovely. Especially the blue cat.
There is something special about it, isn’t there? And it is wooden, and hand painted. And soft. Glad you liked her too!
This is a most enjoyable response to the challenge.
I had some fun too, Anne – thank you!
These are all lots of fun but my favorite is the very first one. Have to say that the others made me smile.
Then I am happy they made you smile!
Love your scary friends, Ann-Christine. The header photo with the beautiful light is stunning.
Glad you like them, Wendy. So glad to be able to ”see” them again.
Such fun to read and see your images, Anne-Christine. Could not help but smile!
Such fun A-C 😀 love the response to this theme
