I've been thinking about this for a few days and trying to decide the meaning of this word. I'm thinking maybe plain, simple, unadorned. I think maybe objects should be functional. Then again, I may be on the wrong track entirely!

a definition of photographic blandness COULD be when the image looks the same (almost) when in colour or B & W

i.e. - it's to do with colour (blandness)

no offence to mini owners

Great picture. Not sure it hits the 'unadorned / bland / expressionless' mode though. Maybe if you took out the stairs and had him sitting there zen like beneath the smoke alarm.

you should be able to figure it out...
I'm having the same problem I had earlier in this thread - when photos hit a certain level of "good", I have a problem also looking at them as "bland". These recent shots are too good and I'm having trouble reconciling myself to their "blandness"...

I do like the idea of Don floating all zen-like below the smoke detector with no stairs or visible means of support...
