Theme Day: Mysterious Objects

Guatemalan decoration handicrafts made from seeds by Rudy A. Girón

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. —Henry Miller

As every first of the month, AntiguaDailyPhoto is participating on the theme day organized by DailyPhoto community. Mystery Object was voted as the theme for October 2011.

I had a couple of mysterious objects in mind including rum distillation equipment, but, on the last minute, I came across the quote from Henry Miller about how mysterious and awesome the world can be if we pay attention to it. I chose to share these mysterious looking objects, Guatemalan decoration pieces really, made with seeds commonly found in Guatemala. I hope you like it.

Please, if you have some extra time this weekend pay a visit to the other DailyPhoto cities around the world participating and find out what my colleagues have chosen for the theme day. Afterwards come back and let’s know what was the most mysterious object you found. 😉

  • They are really beautiful!
    Great take on the theme, and how true for photography Miller’s quote is!

    Are they just decorative?  Or do you use nice-smelling spices to make the room smell great?  I used to make something that was supposed to look like these with cloves, but they never looked quite as good. Also, here, there are some people who make garden ornaments of seeds to hang from a tree so birds can eat the seeds.  Maybe I will try that some time.

    I remember this one of William Blake : To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.


  • I was wondering if these are like a bouquet of pot pouri emanating scents through the room! They really are such beautiful items! I have never seen anything like this before!

  • CarmenR3

    They sell balls similar to these in stores in the U.S. just for decorative purposes.  These are pretty!
