I Cheated... and I'm Glad

Today I told myself that I would photograph something around my house that I found beautiful, and the only caveat was that whatever subject I chose had to be ordinary. Mundane. Easy, peasy, I told myself. I like my house. I have lots of things in my house that I enjoy seeing on a daily basis.

However, the task proved to be more difficult than I had imagined and, ultimately, I failed. Granted, my foes were bad lighting and constant interruptions, but still, couldn't something better than a jumble of...well... crap piled on the bench just inside our front door be found?

Probably. And for someone with more forbearance than I would have found it and made it beautiful.

But me?

Well, I cut my losses and reverted back to an old standby, one of my very not mundane or ordinary photographic crutches.

And really. That smile. Those eyelashes.

Can you blame me?

That is a perfectly acceptable "cheat". I loved it!
