**** Mini Challenge 329 - See the Extraordinary in the Ordinary ****
The topic of the next mini challenge is "See the Extraordinary in the Ordinary".
Rules are straightforward... Photograph an ordinary object and try to make it look interesting - Pick an object, study it from different perspectives and then shoot. Play with shadows and light. Get down on the ground or shoot from above, etc., etc.
The challenge begins now, and will end on January 3rd, 2012 at 6 PM, CST (Chicago time).
The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You may enter up to three competition images.
The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.
If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2nd place, etc. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and/or camera used.
Please reply to the ORIGINAL (THIS) post if you are submitting an entry and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge #329... it would be very boring to scan the list. Try to put your entries within a single post.
Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk * next to the title of the image.
Please embed your image in the thread. Also please re-size your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (approx. 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

Excellent images all!
I live on the shore. When the sun dips below the horizon I get perfectly level light into the house. Once a year the sun sets at a latitude that also coincides with the angle of the living room wall, and for a minute or so the wall texture stand out in sharp relief. The rest of the year, it's just a wall.
