It’s time once again for the Oddball Photo Challenge.  While walking around Old Town Pasadena, I glanced down a cobbled alley, filled with restaurants, shops, and (evidently) an ice cream store.  This is one big cone and let’s not even look up the calorie count!

It’s a glorious spring day in northern Illinois as I write this post on Saturday…warm, sunny, windy (of course)…absolutely what we’ve been waiting for.  The windows are open, I’ve had a walk around the lake, taken some photos, and sat on a bench just relaxing and enjoying being outside.  Tomorrow is Palm Sunday as well as the latest installment of the Oddball Photo Challenge.  Here’s my oddball for this week.

Although my daughter offered the use of her car while she was at work, Old Town Pasadena, with its shops, restaurants, and other delights, was only about a mile and a half away, so I packed my camera, telephoto lens, Kindle, notebook, etc. and headed out into the California sunshine.  On the way, I passed a parking garage with this perfect sign atop the entrance.  Or rather, I passed after stopping for a quick oddball photo.  How could I not? It was a sign!

“Flipping” through my online photo files, I found this shot that, although I like it, both in the original and in this edit, had me a bit flummoxed as to what it was.  The next shot showed that it was a photo of the lid to a small pot, glass with a handle on top.  Obviously something happened with the light, but I like the minimalist abstraction of it and it’s a perfect oddball.

Last week, a piece of string. This week, a hair clip. You just never know what odd thing you’ll find on the park path.

When walking in the park, I generally see the usual suspects: plants, animals, birds, tracks, and sometimes humans.  But every so often, I have a close encounter of the odd kind, the sort that’s just right for a Sunday Oddball Photo Challenge episode. I edited this with Picasa’s Lomo-ish for just a bit more pizzaz.

There’s getting from place to place and then there’s gettin’ around in style!  No one is too young for some snazzy wheels, as this grocery cart catering to the younger set in Mesa, Arizona shows.  It’s just unusual enough to enter the Oddball Photo Challenge for this week. Hopefully both drivers are on the same page as to which aisle they’re headed for next!

I’ve joined Instagram, although I’m still feeling my way around.  My username is, unsurprisingly, Sustainabilitea, so feel free to follow me there.  If you’re on Instagram, let me know.
