Weekly Photography Challenge: Extra-ordinary Creativity

Albert Einstein — ‘There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.’

Whether something is ordinary or extraordinary just depends on your point of view, and that is the theme of the photography challenge for this week.

While my husband was performing his extraordinary duties as the Golden Gateway Festival King (I know!), attending a variety concert in the iconic Ararat Performing Arts Centre, I spent a few hours at my friend Wilma’s open garden event. She seems to have endless energy and a great imagination when it comes to incorporating interesting…junk…into her sprawling garden. She puts ordinary things to extraordinarily creative use – this is not all of them, just a sample!

The vignette near the cottage window is so elegant – but then there’s the enormous spider on the gate…I think the arrangement of objects on the yellow chair is the work of her great-grandson – clearly an artist in the making!

There were also (extra)ordinary flowers, such as this glorious yellow bearded iris.IMG_6346
