    Well I would like to try to enter something new, but this is quite a different theme. Not easy to just find oddities...*

    thanks. ;)
    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 :eek: with her bulging pink eyes and prune-like flesh. :D

    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.

    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 :cool:

    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 clich├ęs... :confused::hmm:

    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.

    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)
