Yours is COOL - not boring at all! You should see my boring ones - I'm too embarrassed to post them.

I want to play, how about this one:



Detail of a 1932 road way bridge. (I think this is much more boring than Daniel's image, I couldn't tell him that his was actually interesting since he seems to have his heart set on boring ;-) )

Daniel and Ira...I like these kinds of photos. Not boring at all to me.

Daniel

The colors of the cable make this shot interesting to me..

Ira

The bridge railing is reminiscent of an oriental ideogram, thus interesting to me..

Perhaps, re-title the thread Everyday Objects??

I'd like to change the thread headline to "what I saw that others overlooked". Could no doubt be more boring than your examples. On first glance I thought Daniels picture was a macro of a sewing device.

I've got a zillion pictures of groups of four to eight people around a table, doing group work at training seminars. That is boring to all but those who are in the picture.

Ira, do you have any ideas on how to take photos at school of everyday work, without them being boring?

Kjell, teaching is never boring, but photographing it is a snore fest.

OK guys, my next boring image, a light bulb!!



Anyone doze off yet?

Daniel, thanks for starting this thread, it's fun.
