There’s nothing like a good weird photo and Ann-Christine has asked us to delve into the weird and wonderful this week. Let’s start by an adult version of Through the Looking Glass. This is Through the Wine Glass.

“Weirdism is definitely the cornerstone of many an artist’s career.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes o
f a Gadfly

Although this isn’t quite in focus, it’s one of my weirder experiences and photos, created when I threw out an old head for an electric toothbrush and the magnet in the bottom stuck to the side of my metal wastebasket. What a weirdly hilarious moment!

Stuff that would be weird in the bright light of day just wasn’t so much once you passed a certain hour.”
― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

Nature can give us some interestingly weird “things.”

“I’d rather be a little weird than all boring.”
― Rebecca McKinsey

There’s just something about this photo that I like, whether in the original, almost abstract form on the left or when slightly saturated on the right. It’s as if these two pieces of wood are imitating each other in the river.

And then there are the things I just see while out walking. 🙂

  1. Ally Bean says:

    Love your odd photo. I like the quote: “I’d rather be a little weird than all boring.” Rebecca McKinsey says the truth.

  2. Weird and wonderful all, plus funny regarding your toothbrush head.

  3. Amy says:

    Weired and wonderful selections! The last one is quite cool. 🙂

  4. Leya says:

    Haha – well, weird and wonderful they are, but I laughed out loud at the toothbrush head! I am still giggling…

  5. I might have to try some of the weird things you’re done here’s

  6. Tina Schell says:

  7. You’ve found some great examples of weird and wonderful, but your photography is just plain wonderful! I love the delicacy of that last photo.

    A nice collection . Im curious about the pink buds or flowers, whatever they are. I also think it would be fun to photograph a shoot, through a wine glasses. I know…weird. donna

    What fun! Your toothbrush photo. The wine glass reflection was really interesting, too. And that mysterious spidery growth on your walk also had me wondering. I hope you have a wonderful weekend…and definitely not weird!

  11. Resa says:

    LOL!!! What the heck is that last pic? I love a good mystery!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
