ordinary mandala no. 1



Okay, so Saturday afternoon I was taking some photos for another YouTube video, and I noticed that I was seeing a lot of circles in the pictures. I started photographing every circle I could find, thinking I would later put them together in some sort of video. This is that video.

Most of the photos were taken tonight at my parents' house. I called the video "ordinary mandala" because all the circles remind me of mandalas, only the subject matter (the photos of the household objects) is ordinary - not what you'd normally associate with spirituality.

But then, I've always loved the simplicity of the ordinary...

spaghetti squash


I took these photos today after scooping the seeds out of a spaghetti squash, in order to cook the squash. I thought the yellow-orange colour of the gunk from the middle of the squash looked neat against the blue of this bowl.
