    Welcome to this week's photo contest thread!

    Theme: Beauty in Everyday Things

    This competition could have had one of several titles, Beauty in the Mundane, in the Commonplace, Ordinary. It’s looking for beauty in ordinary objects that most people would just take for granted but in which us eagle-eyed photographers see some line or shape or that certain something that allows us to make a picture worth looking at. If your entry is particularly obscure, you might want to title it!

    Enjoy! :)


    Contest ends: 10 March 2015

    Rules:

    1. Be creative and have fun.

    2. Please submit only one photo per contest.

    Lights in a hotel room that had bulbs of varying temperatures hence the different colours. The shades were all the same colour and I found it quite beautiful.
