Chaos: Up Close and Personal

Chaos: Weekly Photo Challenge  do you have a junk drawer? Or two? A little dish that collects odds and ends? Stray stuff without a place to reside?


Do You Keep a Junk Drawer?

A couple of years ago I was going to photograph junk drawers.  It looks like it has already been done on the google search. There are some incredible junk drawers in the image search already.

There’s even an article about Make Over Your Junk Drawer from overwhelmed to organized

My DIL Erika consented that I could blog hers but that was awhile back so hope she is still in agreement.

After all, this is probably the kind of situation that gives a MIL a bad name.

I blogged my own junk on my old Keep or Pitch blog but never proceeded with the project.

I’m thinking about returning to the project, even though there are a lot of photos out there already.

Just read an article about self-assignment for your photography practice and I was thinking about some of the ideas I’ve been considering.

One thing, no two junk drawers would be the  same.

So you do keep a junk drawer in your home?    Maybe readers could send photos of their own junk drawers and we could have a collection of photos from around the world.  Maybe they are only in the USA.

If I came to photograph it, would you keep it “as is” or feel compelled to tidy it up first?

Just thinking about junk drawers. Cleaning up. Being tidy.  Wondering how little pieces gather in a spot, collect.

Thanks Erika.

Junk Drawer in the Kitchen

If you followed my Keep or Pitch blog,you’ve seen these already.  Seems only fair to post some of my own accumulated junk.

no room for a junk drawer?  A little copper dish will do.
