Flat

One of the categories in the photo club competition this month is flat. I was trying to find something around the house that would convey the idea from this pov. I'm not sure if it's exactly what I wanted to achieve, but I entered it anyway.
It is flat although I have no idea what is it? :) What is it? Like the tones. Pictured you going round the house looking for what to photo and a smile came on my face because lately with this project I'm in the same condition constantly outdoors & indoors ;D

@axika Thanks Alexandra! It's a spatula for flipping pancakes and eggs, etc. Yes, I am constantly pulling things out of drawers, digging through memorabilia, and looking for something I haven't photographed yet. I have also made an impulse purchase or two just because the "item" in question would look good on 365! I have fun with it to be sure!

Haha--I didn't know what it was, either, but I think you've done a good job with "flat!" Nice DOF. I love looking at your photos because you often take such interesting ones of ordinary things.

When I think "I don't know what to shoot," I often think of your photos because you take the mundane and make it beautiful. I never would have guessed this was a spatula. Great shot.

@eudora @sgiesman Thank you Diane and Sarah! You know, I think it's a matter of developing your ability to "see". When you take the first look at a subject, it's often how you look at it out of habit. You'd see the spatula sitting on a counter and then go on with your day. But for me, photography makes you look at it again, and not like you always look at it, but in a different way. So instead of just looking at the spatula on top of the counter, I look at it as if I'm on the counter with it! Thanks so much for the compliments- they make me feel so good!
@sarasdadandmom Thank you Terry!
@mrssmith203 Thank you Carla!

Anne, you did so well with this. Another time of taking something ordinary and making it extraordinary.

Nicely done! I thought it was the underside of an iron...

Thank you Timothy, Taffy, Alia, Dione, and Jennifer! I wouldn't have thought of this if it wasn't for the competition.

Nice shot, Ann! Love the design. It certainly doesn't look like a spatula from the angle you have it at! Well done :)

@prttblues Thanks Bev! It's an old (but still looks like new) metal spatula that I think I got from my grandmother's house- I'm not sure how I ended up with it now. Anyway- I don't really use it much except maybe on the grill in the summer because being that it's metal you can't use it on Teflon or any other coated pan.
