Dark and Proud – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: September 19th, 2019

Each week Kammie challenges us to post an oddball photo:

Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

Not sure I would want it in my house!

This one on the other hand I quite like, though he does look a bit like he has had his trotters cut off!  I suppose they could be ‘cloven gloves’?

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.
