LAPC: The Objects of My Every Day August 25, 2020 / amoralegria P.A. Moed is the host for this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Everyday Objects. I bought this little metal sculpture of a javelina at a street fair in Tucson, Arizona. Its home is in front of my fireplace. One of my cat’s toys is under her chin right now. (My cat’s favorite toys are balls that she rolls around the house until they get stuck somewhere.) This is one of my ‘Covid-19 pandemic’ pictures. Our food is delivered to our door every day and often includes either bananas or oranges. Another ‘Covid-19 pandemic’ picture – we had accumulated several masks and a pair of plastic gloves that had been sitting around forever, so I found a little basket to put the masks in. Now we always know where to find a clean mask! Two photos of the Styrofoam containers we’ve been collecting, which our meals are delivered in. There are very few places that recycle Styrofoam, and it’s such a waste, so once we found a place that recycles it (actually the company that makes these containers) we started collecting our Styrofoam packaging, and we’ve pooled our collection with other residents here. About once every two months, a couple of people will take a run out to the company with all our recyclables – it’s about 25 miles from here! I originally took this photo for another photo challenge – maybe favorite snacks? Another pandemic picture from early in the lockdown – our TV set, mounted on the wall, tuned to our community’s closed caption channel which that day was broadcasting a concert by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. An everyday object – a pencil – in an unusual place: stuck in a display of evergreens. Here’s a gallery of some things I’ve photographed in the past.

Oh I really like your final image. Is that a little kid’s training seat? It’s so sweet!!
I don’t know where I saw that “training seat” but found it amusing. I love finding things like this and saving their images through photos.
That little seat is adorable! A great find. You have me wondering about the pencil in the evergreens!
I also wondered about it! It was there for a couple of weeks. Then it disappeared!
Excellent series. Well done. Good work on the styrofoam! I think it has the half-life of uranium! 🙂
Thanks, John! Yes, Styrofoam is so bad for the environment!
Varied gallery – and interesting. Love the last find!
