I figure one way to become a better photographer is to force myself to find pictures even when nothing seems worth photographing. The person who painted our house did a horrible job. I noticed this small imperfection in the bathroom when the afternoon sun came in an casted a shadow.
(For this particular picture, a dark background would have done it more justice.)
I also grabbed a shot of the toilet paper, taken laying flat on my back. I like the light vs shadows and the vertical vs horizontal lines.
