Odd ball – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: June 13, 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.

Well a light really.

Spheres within spheres – Weekly Prompts: Sphere

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Sphere’ as the theme for their challenge.

Gerry and I would like you to undertake a photographic shape-walk, and we’re pretty certain that during your shape-walk, the sphere will be a little more obvious to you than it was to the five and six-year-olds. Try it, it’s fun!

Well I didn’t get very far with my walk, I stepped out of the back door of the house and into the garden, where I had been stationed most of the morning doing the ‘bank holiday garden tidy’, a dance I am sure a fair few of you have also been doing!.  There before me on the wall were four glass balls, here is one of them.

Its in sphere – Weekly Photo Challenge – Round Things

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ asks:

So this week I’m going to send you off on a quest to photograph round things. I’m specifically thinking spheres, but I’ll leave the challenge open for other round things.

This week, the challenge is to go out and…

Photograph Round Things

Well I did not have to go far in my quest for a round thing.  This ‘thing’ sits in my desktop organiser and looks at me as I type up my posts, and edit photos.  It was inevitable that one day I would photograph it.  It is not quite a marble, nor is it a ball.  It is a sphere within a sphere!

The inner sphere has an eye printed on it, is weighted, and is suspended in liquid within a larger clear sphere.  And therefore when you roll it along a surface the eye always remains staring upwards, giving the effect that it is mysteriously floating along a surface rather than rolling.
