Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 111: EVERYDAY OBJECTS

Patti Moed: Take “a fresh look at ordinary, everyday objects — things that you see and use in your everyday life . . . “

For this challenge, self decided to go outside and see what she could see. Fires are raging in her county, but three things stand between them and her neighborhood: the I-280 freeway, foothills (at this time, dry as dry) and of course FIREFIGHTERS. The fires are at this moment 10% contained; it took firefighters almost a whole week to get there.

Since it is summer, her backyard is in fruit. She has three fig trees, one plum tree, one lemon tree, and two cherry trees. Busy, busy time. Because of this photo challenge, she decided to take pictures of homely garden furniture which she’s had for probably decades:

Here are a few peeks at the Everyday Objects of others:

    We’ve all been watching the horrific fires out there Kanlaon, hoping you are outside of the danger area. Our thoughts are with all of you.

      It’s a little scary because of the hazy skies and they warned us to expect lightning tonight. I’m taking my laptop and cell with me, no matter what. And mebbe a few books.

        Much like our hurricane evacuation planning. Mother nature proving her power.

        Take care! I heard there were two hurricanes — Mother Nature feels almost Biblical in her wrath.

        I agree Fortunately for us it’s headed in a different direction this time. Who knows what comes next!

        I have a feeling these climate disasters will be coming more frequently. Can you imagine? These fires are the BIGGEST in California history. Climate change is here.

    Your self did so well to project such calm in the midst of the fire and public health emergency. Stay safe and leave early if evacuation is needed.

      I think we’re safe for now (Fire is “30% contained”), but more little fires keep popping up all over the place. I don’t know how I managed not to panic last week. Doing the photo challenge kept me calm. Something positive to focus on!

    Stay safe and take care. Mother Nature is in for revenge for what we have done to her. We must better ourselves, mankind.

      The fires seem to get bigger every year. ONE ridge separated my neighborhood from the main fire. We were lucky this time. It’s climate change.

        It is. And we are responsible.
