Everyday life…What? Fit into a form? Me? Tough, tough WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
I’ve fought and fought with this challenge. What I wanted to do is express my everyday life with images and then I realised that, being a true Bohemian, well everyday life just has to fall into place as it can.
So here is a small idea of my everyday:
My everyday is exotic. Yes…terrifically exotic. Unusual, extraordinary, one of a kind exotic.
It’s beautiful and fragile. Very fragile. Cut down with the tiniest cold draft fragile. Handle with extreme care, be careful what you say fragile.
(Just ask R, he’ll tell you)
It’s strong and resilient. Weather any storm, stay in the flow, circulatory system, Dunkirk spirit strong.
There’s art. There’s always art. There’s a sliding scale of traditional to way out there art. It’s ever changing, ever evolving, ever opportunistic will-make-art-of-anything art.
And there’s magic and whimsy…there’s always and most importantly magic and whimsy.
That’s everyday life round me.
Not easy being around me…or being me for that matter. Just hang on for the ride. 🙂
I think you met the challenge beautifully, Veronica. I love “Dunkirk spirit strong”.

I like your unique approach to the challenge Veronica! 🙂
Elizabeth, you are so sweet, thank you. I caught a peek of you Warhol post just now. Can’t wait to get back there and read it. 🙂
Your images are informal and yet strong. You seem to have the magic blend between delicate and bold. I am especially drawn to your plants and flowers. That is a wonderful part of a person’s everyday life. Well done!
Galen, thank you so much. I see you love to photograph flowers too. Some days I feel like I could be completely happy photographing nothing but.
Let’s hear it for magic and whimsy!! Hear, hear 🙂
Yes Sara… find as much as you can! 🙂
