Faces – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge: April 18, 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.

This week a photo from the Eden project in Cornwall, a group of carved wooden posts which look like faces.

This week photos from Shap Abbey in Cumbria.  The first photo is of a sign on a gatepost I assume signifying that this is the way to the abbey, I find it quirky and odd, so probably not that odd that I took a photo.

And the second photo is just to give you a bit of context as to the location.

While I do not rate this as an oddball from the perspective that I have taken it, it is after all a sculpture that I quite liked the look of.  I think it can qualify as an oddball due to the subject matter – Person sat reading on top of an oxen, is it comfy? Does it stay still? Perhaps they are reading a map and are lost!

Getting ready for a duck race at one of the dance events we go to, you might find that odd but it has become a traditional part of the event, I took this photo.

Walking around Lynmouth and Lynton I saw this, a kettle hung on a hanger in a garden.  It probably means something!

So another photo from the same series that had the boots last week.  A photo of the tassels on the back of a friends long coat, his wife had woven/braided them, and I took the photo, the reasons are lost to history.

These boots are made for walking – Kammie’s Oddball Challenge – February 21, 2019

So what to choose for this week, having chosen a mirrored photo for the last two weeks I thought I would continue with that theme.  So after a quick delve into the ancient archives I turned up the image of my boots, I take a fair few shots of my boots, shoes, sandals, and it is usually on purpose!  So this time I thought I would give you the before and after.  The first may be slightly odd but the resulting image is definitely an oddball.

So what to choose for this week, having chosen a mirrored photo last week I thought I would do the same again.  Once again the basic photo was not an oddball at all, but once it was mirrored on both vertical and horizontal axis, and a filter or two added, well . . .
