Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #111: Everyday Objects
I spend an inordinate amount of time everyday in front of this everyday objects. It’s fair to say that it’s taken over my life.
Other objects of great importance to me: reading glasses to help me see the tiny screen on my iPhone, the other technological object to consume my life. The battery in the middle goes into my Canon Rebel ti3, the third and final piece of technology to take over my life.

This is my submission to Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #88: Chaos. As if the clutter on the table isn’t chaotic enough, the two roughhousing kittens add to the atmosphere of anarchy and abandon.
I took this photo with my iPhone 11. I chose “panorama” from the horizontal menu at the bottom of the display and then spun slowly on an axis a full 360 degrees.
This was taken underneath the dome of the State House in Annapolis, Maryland. Staring up like this too long is a good way to hyper-extend your neck! Change Your Perspective
