B&W Photo Challenge – Lite Version

You’ve likely heard of the B&W Photo Challenge.

The rules are: Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.

I’ve been nominated by the wonderful Sophie @ Sophie’s Corner. (Check out her blog – it’s great!) I don’t do much serious photographing, but this looked like fun, so I’m going to do a “lite” version.

Lite version: One day. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. Explanations are OK. Challenge someone new.

Here they are.

I noticed that most people post pictures showing either what inspires them or what defines important moments in their lives. At first I wanted to do this too, but then I realized that I valued something more than being inspirational or defining important moments.

I want to show realness  that I am just as “me” when I go to the washroom as I am when I write a poem about my feelings. So I took pictures of mundane objects to depict the ordinary moments that make up my life.

These are things that I do not usually treasure, but I think maybe I have learned to treasure them now.  They are not special, and they don’t need to be. They are valued as they are.

I think I’ll nominate Cecilia @ Aurora borealis if she wants to do it when after summer is done or when she is less busy. She can also do it through a different platform if she feels like it.

And if anybody else wants to do this, then I tag you too.

  1. I like your LITE rules, haha. Yeah, we often separate our “more glamorous” scenes (writing/ studying/ reading) from our “more mundane” scenes (like going to the bathroom). Hey, you reminded me of how one author, don’t remember who, liked to write about ugly things. He said you had to see the beauty in ugliness. (It wasn’t Charles Dickens, was it??)

  2. Hello Haidan 🙂
    Lol I love your creative take on this challenge. I also love that you chose to showcase the mundane aspects of everyday life that we often overlook.
    Hope your summer is going well. Did you mention you went to AN this year? Happy writing 🙂
