What does the everyday look like? Some answers to this question can be found when looking at moblogs on the internet; where anyone with a mobile phone camera can post their freshly taken pictures. Here we find photographs of meals; road repairs; toddlers; visits to the laundry room; holiday outings and new hairstyles in a proper mishmash. It would even be hard to imagine a motif that would fall outside the boundaries of the everyday. Questions that come to mind when watching these image databases are: Is the everyday necessarily something harmless? Are recurring events more everyday than unique ones? Does the everyday have to be presented in an everyday manner; or are extravagant photographs of the everyday conceivable? These questions are addressed with examples taken from various moblogs.
