Mundane Monday Challenge #72 : Learn Photography

It has been so ghastly hot outside, I haven’t been going out unless I have no choice. This means I’m finding pictures inside. Surprisingly, there have been quite a few indoor photo ops.


I’m addicted to pictures of light filtering through things. Leaves, curtains, glass. This isn’t new. I’ve been following light as long as I’ve been taking pictures – 47 years this summer. I got my first “real” camera the summer of 1969, a few weeks after my son was born.


Today, armed with more than enough cameras and lenses, I’m ready for anything. How come the wrong lens is always on the camera? Why is that?

Is this another Murphy’s Law?

                1. I know. Logically, it ought to change LESS when sent electronically, but it still changes. And quickly. I think this is how history gets rewritten. Pass the stories … along and each passer adds or subtracts a little “something.” 🙂

    1. Thank you. I like the light. It’s a bit too cluttered and a lot too dusty, but the east/north facing of the windows gives it a nice “look” 🙂 It was my mother’s favorite light for painting.


    1. I did consider it, but being a professional photographer is not about art. It’s about bar mitzvahs and weddings and baby pictures. Product shots. Art in photography is what dedicated amateurs do. The pros don’t have time.

    1. Both. The organ is old and tired. It needs restoration before it would really sound like a musical instrument … which isn’t going to happen. So for the moment, it’s “decorative.” The piano works, though. And I can make it sound like an organ.

  1. Very nice room but tell this simple Brit what that electric looking thing is sitting on the piano with the lights. Is that an AC or a secret connection to the CIA?


    1. Thanks 🙂 I suspect composition is my strong point, photographically. What I lack is speed and spontaneity. I’m so busy composing, I miss a lot of great shots. I’m working on it – as I have been for at least forty years 🙂 Someday, I’ll remember to click the shutter before the picture runs away.
