    Mundane Thread Photographic Edition

    Simple and mundane concept: recent photos you've snapped in your day-to-day life. Recent is the idea. It's not art. Instagram for OTF.

    This was out if my office window a week ago, so for those who like such trivia:

    I got arty a few weeks ago when waiting for my Mexican food take-out.

    Nice contrast, is that a refinery?

    There's not too many great Mexican spots in Santa Monica. This one is pretty good. I like a place in West LA called El Super Taco a bit more, it has a more Oaxacan influence.

    Thank you, I think it's a all a bit messy myself. Yes there are refineries there, not sure which one. A quick Wiki indicates it may be one of Petroplus or Exxonmobile, but I'll happily stand corrected if not.

    I've had to pick some roses as the bush is dragging on the ground. Really enjoying the red and gold (looks better on natural light).

    What's that in the top right AdC? It'll be really obvious when you tell me.

    Can I be the 1st to say that most of these are way beyond mundane, and are indeed quite arty. So there.

    Yes, by afternoon the skies are a clear, fearsome blue. This year we've had no rain to speak of since March, and last Winter was particularly mild.

    Not at all. When see you it everyday you realise it's different everyday. One of my neighbours is up at dawn every morning. Each time he takes a picture from exactly the same spot. He's almost completed a year.

    The photo above kinda shows the limits of digital point-and-shoot. It's facing East into the sun. So bright I could barely see. But the camera has rendered it flat and grey, it looks overcast. Interesting, but wildly inaccurate.

    I agree some of these transcend the mundane. Not including my own in that I hasten to add.

    On which subject, my tree is meant to be portrait orientation, and looks that way on the iPad. But on my work PC it was lying on its side. Which way does it appear to others, and if it's landscape can I fix it? I saved in Tinypic in portrait.
