Most of us have waited for the train to arrive standing on the platform. An ordinary, daily event form millions of commuters over the world. What makes this extra ordinary I don’t think I need to say.
Plastic shopping bags are an ordinary item that we are given at supermarkets and other shops to hold our goods. This is an extra ordinary use of them and quite beautiful as well. I’d be happy as Cinders going to the ball dressed in this dress.
Sand castles may not be an ordinary thing we make in our daily lives but most of us would have had a holiday by the beach and built a sand castle. It is the detail of this castle which makes it extra ordinary.
Fencing wire used to be part of my life when we had the farm. Quite an ordinary, essential item. This is extra ordinary in its use, not for containing beasties but as a light shade.
Every day we probably use countless numbers of switches. Computers, coffee machines, irons, washing machines. All need turning on and off. This is extra ordinary in its gold plating – this isn’t any ordinary white plastic number.
Stairs are so ordinary I don’t give them a thought. Not until I saw these extra ordinary glass treads.
Bird cages are something I have seen throughout my life. Not often but I know what they are. They don’t seem extra ordinary to me until I see them hanging en masse in an alley way above my head with nary a bird to be seen.
A morning coffee is very ordinary. I have one every day at the end of my dog walk. What is extra ordinary is the snorkelling gear on one of the patrons. Now that was not ordinary at all just a trifle weird.
