I like this week's theme a lot. “Odd.” Originally I looked through my archives for photographs of odd things, but then I read Carmi's description more closely:
“I take a lot of weird pictures. The kind of pictures that make folks stop and stare as I'm shooting them. The kind of photos that prompt the Doubting Thomases of our world to accuse me of wasting film...and time...So for the next week, I'm hoping we'll all share some oddball shots that get the raised eyebrow look from friends and strangers alike.”I have a bunch of these, and I had a hard time weeding through them so as not to overwhelm. But I managed it, and here are my photos where people say “Why the heck did you take a picture of that?”.
Remember to click on the photos if you want to see them larger...
So exactly who is it that keeps training the guys who build bathrooms to put the toilet paper too low? Is it something the men do only to the women's room as some stupid joke? Or are they a bunch of morons?
These things are beautiful enough to photograph...when they're on someone else's property.
My mom made me take this when she got all upset about a ticket she was going to try to fight. It's actually quite lovely, isn't it?
I don't know why I was surprised to see advertising on the subway entrance turnstiles in New York City.
I snap photos of a lot of the odd things I find around my house.
How could anyone not think this was worth photographing? How often to you really get to see a bunch of frozen mice in a plastic bag? How could I not take a photo of this?
Had a great time looking through some old photos and finding these. Loved this week's Thematic Photographic: A weekly meme wherein a topic is given and people contribute links to their blogs where they have posted their contributions. To learn more about it, go here.
