Mundane Challenge #3 - Vegetable/Potato Peeler

posted November 17th, 2012
Wow, I couldn't believe it when Cathy sent me a message saying I'd won the mundane challenge - screwdriver! Thank you all so much for voting for my shot. Great way to end my project! I finished my first year this week... but still here, just not posting every day.

Anyway, this theme was started by Aaron (@grizzlysghost) for those of us who may have lost inspiration by suggesting we take a common, boring object and start shooting it.

This weeks subject is found in the kitchen... a vegetable or potato peeler. It can be any kind of shot (high key, low key, DOF, blur, forced perspective, bokehlicious, anything you can think up.

The only rule; there can be no question the object of the challenge is the star!

Tag your shots with "mundane-peeler". Feel free to post your favourites on this thread. Next weekend I will select my five favourites and the winner will champion the next "Mundane Challenge". You will have until midnight Saturday (EST - Brisbane time) 24th November to post your shots... top 5 will be selected and shared for voting next Sunday!!

Have fun... can't wait to see what you guys can create!

EDIT **... be sure to tag your shot with "mundane-peeler" so you don't miss out... **

Congrats on completing a full 365. The images already posted for this challenge are awesome. Not too confident I can pull something equivalent, but will give it a go :)

@synke thank you, will you have a go at the challenge too? Would be fun to see alternative views of the peeler.

Okay, this challenge really got me working - here's one more :)
posted November 24th, 2012
Ahhh, there are SO many awesome entries for this one! Love it!
posted November 24th, 2012
Though certainly a peeler, this one is really not in keeping with the definition of "mundane" so it isn't part of the challenge, but I just had to shoot it; just too cute not to! :)

posted November 24th, 2012
more an experiment in ISO than anything else... but i needed a subject and the peeler was as good as any ;p

posted November 24th, 2012
@grizzlysghost What an awesome peeler!!! You can tag it if you want to :P
posted November 24th, 2012
Midnight Peeling - okay, it's not quite midnight, but 9:20 peeling doesn't sound as good. :) This is my first entry in this challenge and it was fun!

@ozziehoffy - I was wondering who won this challenge... and what is the new mundane challenge...?!
