“Intended for Everyday Use”

Today’s prompt was challenging for me.  “How about really paying attention to what we use, eat, look at every single day, without fail. Decide on one of the many pieces of our everyday puzzle and get to know it a little better. Showcase it in your photo today and give it the recognition and appreciation it deserves.”

I pondered this one.  Thought of the things I use each day and tried to figure out how to present one in a unique way.  My daughters spouted out the same items that ran through my mind: car keys! iPod! cell phone! computer!  True, yes.  Interesting picture? Meh. 

It just so happens that yesterday and today found me helping out our dance teacher with gathering music for this year’s recital.  She chooses a theme each year, and this year’s is “Earth, Air,Water and Fire.”    “Firework” by Katy Perry, “Flamethrower” by J. Geils Band and “Eternal Flame” by the Bangles popped to mind as possibilities.  Flame….hey!  That could work!

 My nifty-fifty, f2.0, 1/50.  I like the bright blue against my dark cook-top and the background bokeh provided by the various  jars and bottles gathered  to the side of the stove.  Comments and criticisms very welcome! 😉
