Finding Romance in Daily Life Objects

Sometimes we travel through life with our eyes open but not seeing anything.  We look but we don’t see.  For example, we look at objects around us at home or office everyday, but do we actually see them?  I’m afraid we don’t.

In a recent article about photography, it was explained how easy it is to find hidden messages inside ordinary everyday objects which can be captured with our cameras and shared with our family, friends or co-worker, or just about anybody around the world through the conduit of a connected computer.  The author explained how he saw a heart in a pair of scissors and took a lovely shot.  I followed his steps and did the same thing.

Below are several pictures of a heart hidden inside a pair of scissors and the feet of a ballet ballerina in the same object.  Can you see it too?  Here we go.

  1. Lovely photos, Omar. I like the last one, especially. I think it’s because of the longer curve of the stem, and the complete view of the scissors in the jar. But they’re all great!

  2. I also liked the last one. The colors are softer, the arch of the stem is quite graceful and the feet of the ballerina seemed to me very delicate. Of course the shape of the heart at the top also captured my attention.

    It’s amazing how we can find beauty in ordinary everyday objects. I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. Thank you for your encouraging comment.

    Best Regards,
