Mundane Monday #49 – A patina

This week’s Mundane Monday Photo, hosted by Pho Trablogger, as always, challenges us to find the beauty in everyday, normal, commonplace things. I dusted off my file cabinet, and pulled out this photo:

What I liked was the way a close up of one thingย could resemble another.ย  Or is itย just in the eye of the beholder?

    Cheese? No… Not if it’s sitting on your filing cabinet. So what is it? I LIKE the header!!! Did you find it like that or put the words on yourself?

      LOL Actually the main focus, for me, when snapping the pic, was the patina of white beneath the cheese… I thought it looked like snow ๐Ÿ™‚

      I found the header, cropped it and put in the text. It was actually a part of a WHOLE background for a site, but I didn’t think that it would work for any of our themes. Still, the header could be used.

    I thought cheese too, but I figure it’s something else.
    What is it, Fim?

      My focus was on the patina beneath the cheese. I thought it looked like the kind of snow – sort of a frosting – that we’ve been getting this winter. But it’s not snow.
      The cheese is part of a chachka (sp?) a little mouse on a slice of cheese, and the other thing next to it is the bottom of a mug. I’m going to have to work on how to blur the other parts of my pic to make something the focus. I know there’s a way, but don’t know how to achieve it yet, with our new camera. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is actually a ‘figurine’ but that was not the focus of the pic… or what I was trying to focus on… it was the patina beneath it… the white ‘looks like a frosting of snow’ The two colorful objects are ceramic. The one with the lines is the lower part of a mug. The figurine is a little mouse, sitting on a slice of cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Patina. I had to check its meaning and then i found dust on your file. But cheese looking thing get the lime light! I guess it is a Bakelite or clay container?

    Yes! It was all about the dust! It reminded me of snow when it doesn’t accumulate more than 1/8th of an inch.
    Yes, the cheese part is the bottom of a figurine (a mouse standing on a slice of cheese). The other part next to it is a mug from Maine. Very colorful. But I was going for the dust. ๐Ÿ™‚
