Photographing the Mundane


"TWO RUSTY BOLTS Go into a Bar, and the Sociopathic one demands of his Minion."  Yeah, so what, strange title for an art photograph.  But, I can name it whatever I want, so there, alright!


“Most times, we look at objects for their utilitarian purpose. But as photographers, we regard them for their momentary visual appearance.” – Catherine Jo Morgan

Yes, I too see things for their momentary visual appearance and decide if it will make an interesting photograph to me.

The fact that an object attracts my eye is not surprising to me.  What surprises me is that another person will have no appreciation for such mundane objects and totally disregard them, either in real life, or as represented and interpreted in photographs.  They, the close-minded, I fear, just don’t get it.
