Best of Waste: Photo A Day - Change

Day 22 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Change


There were lots of ideas in my mind for today's prompt.

I could show a change of seasons with a collage of various pictures taken from my balcony... foggy, cloudy, clear sky, monsoon. Or I could show the change in me... from when my hair was really long to when it was practically in a boy cut.

I could show the change in my nephew Yuvraj... from the day he was born to the day I last saw him in Patna. Or I could show the change in a cooking process... from the ingredients to the finished dish.

I could photograph an old chip of soap placed next to a brand new bar of soap. Or I could simply take a picture of my wall clock, to show the changing time.

Buds and flowers from the gardens downstairs, or a nest full of pigeons and their eggs/baby pigeons. I could even photograph the recent alteration marks in some of my tops, to show my expanding waistline!

Eventually, I decided to photograph this...


Best of Waste: Recycled Glass Jar

A best-out-of-waste art-work that I did a couple of months ago. Some old wool and an empty chilli sauce bottle... recycled into a pretty vase with some handmade flowers.

Here's how I did it, in case anyone wants to know... Snowy Alpines: Recycled Jars with Wool Pom-Pom Flowers.


This is my 22nd post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

Afshan - Knitting is one thing that I didn't learn... even though my mom was a pro at it! But, I totally lacked the patience!

Is it possible for you to share pics of your table cloths and fridge covers?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Pallavi. The original idea was from pinterest, but it used single color paint. I got bored with single color, so I decided to try creating patterns with multiple shades.

Naina Madan said...

Jyothi said...
