Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #169 – The Ordinary

Is this just an ordinary sink? Or does it creep you out like it does me and bring to mind scenes from Stephen King’s horror thriller “The Shining?”

An ordinary hallway in a motel or is there something extraordinary there we can’t see?

Isn’t this out of the ordinary? Or perhaps it’s ordinary discrimination?

Thanks to I. J. Khanewala for this week’s challenge. Head on over to their blog for a glimpse of the ordinary framed differently.

Thursday Thoughts

I’ve had two occupational therapy sessions on my finger this week, one hour at each session, one session Tuesday and one today, Thursday. There’s a lot of bending going on at these sessions and it is quite painful. But I know I must endure it so I can get back to holding my pic and strumming my 6-string again!

I think the healing is coming along fine, the scab is gone revealing a reddish pink scar. The surrounding skin is also reddish, caused by the bending at my therapy sessions. Today the therapist said it was looking just fine as he proceeded to bend my finger down towards the palm of my hand. I grin and bear it, and it helps that my therapist is into flower gardening and grows raspberries as well. We chat about gardening as the pain increases.

We talked about weeding today, a favorite chore of every gardener I’m sure. I should weed more, but not right now, my finger is still healing!
