“Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.”-Bill Moyers

Thank you to @stimuloog and everyone who voted for my black and white tin can shot.
I love the Eye of the Beholder challenge! It is an honor host EOTB115.

Here is a description of the challenge:

Jeff Walker, who started this challenge quoted Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (who is credited with coining the phrase in 1878) "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

The aim of this challenge is to capture something most people would not consider to be beautiful or interesting and find a way to portray it so that it comes across differently and aesthetically. Transform the ugly into something full of wonder!

You can achieve it any way you wish.

This is a great challenge to help with composition and lighting skills. The way you compose the shot or the way you use light will usually bring out the beauty of your subject. It will also help you look at your surroundings differently. It is not a matter of finding something to photograph, but finding a way to photograph something that makes photographing it worthwhile.

There is no specific item or theme for this challenge, but the subject you photograph has to be something that, if people were watching you taking the shot, they would be wondering what on earth has possessed you to photograph something which seems so ordinarily, plain, bland, boring, ugly, etc.

The challenge starts : December 14 ,2019
The challenge ends: January 15 ,2020

Your photos must be taken during this time frame.
