Bust your Monday blues!

Mundane Monday Challenge #100 : Learn Photography

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Welcome to 100th week of Mundane Monday Challenge

Mundane Monday Challenge or what people call in short term as MMC, started as a result of Blogging 101, an event run by Blogging University of WordPress! One of the tasks encourages to participate in some popular challenges or  even to start and run one’s own challenges!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge was one of the challenges I was actively participating that time.

One day I too wanted to host a challenge! And that is how MMC was born.  6th April 2015 was the first MMC post. 

Started the challenge with very few people, some of them like Dr. H. Bhatnagar is still participating right from the beginning. Some of them joined on the way, some of them dropped out on the way.

But whoever ever participated have been quite very encouraging. I never thought that I would go this far! 100 weeks! Probably it will be the first time I am doing something regularly with some discipline for a long time! It is only because of the encouragement (and external pressure 😉 ) from you all. Ask Parul how many times she reminded me to post it when I had missed to post it ON Monday! And people like Dr Katherine aka Dr.KO. who have volunteered to continue MMC when I wanted to stop it, , are my reasons. There are many more names to mention here. But you might have noticed that I have gone a bit more lazy these days. Well, that is my excuse!

Without much further introduction, let me begin the 100th edition of the challenge.


Mundane Monday Challenge encourages you to take more pictures. The philosophy of MMC is simple. You can create a beautiful picture even by focusing on a very common looking, dull or so called Mundane subject! All you have to do is look around, find a mundane subject, appreciate it and use your creativity to frame it in such a way to create a beautiful frame.

There is one more angle to this challenge. One looks around to find beauty. That is a great way to look at mundane things and be grateful for them. It can help one to change their perspective and helps one to understand that nothing is Ordinary.

In order to create beautiful frames all you have to do is to pay more attention to your surrounding. Try to include a mundane object in your frame. And by following or un-following the composition guidelines, make them look great. You can find a few guidelines in the link below which can help you to get started.

Some Sample Guidelines

I want you to focus on making interesting frames and photographs. Focus more on photography.

Now I want you to make beautiful compositions out of those seemingly mundane objects. So join Mundane Monday Challenge : Learn Photography


How to join, Step by Step :

  • Find beauty in everyday mundane things and frame it beautifully. Use some of the guidelines to get you started.
  • Make a post, upload the photographs and publish it.
  • Dont forget to link it to my latest MMC post. In wordpress language, please give me a pingback.
  • Do leave the link to your post as a comment on the latest MMC post since some of the pingbacks are not working.
  • Do check MMC every Monday and get inspired from MMC community.
  • Engage with MMC community, make new connections and learn from others.

Here goes my entry for this week’s MMC.

You have a MMC challenge. I have a MMP challenge. A bit different but nevertheless. It looks like it is a success as I found you here by way of a blogger participant. It would be fun to join in with your challenge, one week.

This week I’m attempting the “soft” look, but I’m not very adept at it -I guess I like sharp lines and bright colors of the Hyacinths too much! https://artworksfromjeshstg.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/springy-step/

Thanks for your note: I do every week two posts – the one of my own challenge ALL SEASONS, and the one with the challenges I participates in (sometimes I do a weekend posts, but not often). Have a great week!

Hey Jithin,

A separate entry…the photograph is stunning. I am lost in the simple complexity of it. Breathless. Wishing the camera were in my hand taking the photograph.

Awesome! Thank you.

Namaste 🙂
