A collection of the mundane – from the why-the-heck-is-she-taking-a-picture-of-THAT! folder. All the images have been manipulated, some more than others though I couldn’t tell you now the steps i took in altering them.
See Saws was taken at the St. Telesphore flea market – I did a whole photo shoot there one afternoon.
Tangle started as a photo of the floor at my hairdressers’ with all the cords for hair dryers, curling irons, etc.
Organ Pipes was shot at the Abbey for the Arts
Pillar of Strength – just a pillar in an airport. People must have really thought I was strange that day.
Tired – a tire by my shed lead to pure play
Big Wheel – more play
Frozen – trailer hitch after freezing rain
Red Skeleton is an empty vending machine
Spoon in the Sink was awarded a Crystal Award of Merit in Gallery Ring’s Still Life 2020

I love these, Lynne! They are fun and so imaginative.
Thank you, Susan. A lot of hours playing.
Beautiful shots Lynne…all very special. I love the close up world also.
Thank you, Bob. We often pass over the ordinary but there’s something in everything.
Wow! I am so so impressed AND inspired.
Truly a special talent to take the simple, the mundane, the very ordinary everyday things and turn them into art.
Thank you, Susan. It’s fun to see what I can make of the ordinary everyday.
Nice mix of interesting “found” images. I particularly like the B&W bicycle wheel.
