Those are all excellent, each in a very different way.
Well I would like to try to enter something new, but this is quite a different theme. Not easy to just find oddities...*
*And the weather is absolutely fucking awful
Which one are you submitting, then?
I've been using a hideous little Ixus 40 lately, which is so small that I can't actually hold it still enough to take a picture in focus most of the time.
That woman was facing me when I first noticed her and she gave me a bit of a with her bulging pink eyes and prune-like flesh.
Ah yes- both were just finds.
I forgot to look at the OP- is it only things we have done ourselves?
There are no specific rules on it, and it is rather subjective since these are still your photos. It is you who chose the composition, angle, etc and to put them in this competition. But the central idea is someone else's so you won't get my vote, others may disagree.
Reminds me of a very famous Martin Parr shot. Good work.
Made me think of Martin Parr too.
Is that from the aerial walkway in Kew Gardens?
Yep, spent the afternoon in the gardens. That's in the direction of Wembley so i'm assuming its part of the big Willesden estates? Looked very spooky poking up through the trees. Could see the Ally Pally mast to the south west as well
I've never heard of him tbh but i had a look at the one you meant after reading these posts.
My first entry this month:-
Clue - look in the bottom left corner.
This is not an easy theme to enter. I've been trying to keep my eyes and mind open to 'oddities' but thus far not managing anything. It's a bit like trying to plan the unexpected, predict the unpredictable, think the unthinkable, etc clichés...
I agree, I've not found it easy. Not that's a criticism really.
Might have to construct some oddities of my own and photograph them.
Here is my entry White man on the Ramblas
1st Entry: Undressed for the occasion
2nd Entry: Blink and you'll miss it (aka tiny doorwary)
3rd Entry: La Danse
Just thought of one oldie that perhaps qualifies. I have entered it before, but I'm still proud of it and so will give it a second whirl:
Floating eggs (direct link)
where'd she come from?
It was going to be all that glitters is not gold.. It was there, and we thought erm glitter do not ask us why or where it come from.. but cool (well we at least think so) goes of laughing as someone got the joke..
Some good entries so far.
By the way ... I am going to be away from the 30th, so won't be able to do the final thumbs update or the count at the end - any volunteers?
I'll update the thumbs. Might leave the count to someone else though.
Entry 1: Looking Glass
Entry 2: Prehistoric Fairy

Cropped, contrast tinkered with.
