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.

“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.

During the Tour de France, the routes are heavily decorated with a variety of decorations.  Of course, bicycles figure heavily and, as yellow is the color of the jersey, the “maillot jaune”,  worn by the winner at the end of each stage and, of course, at the end of the race, many yellow bikes are seen.  This one would be a bit uncomfortable, to say nothing of not having gears, and how long would the rider’s legs have to be to reach the pedals?  Odd, indeed.

The Weekly Photo Challenge has moved from Friday to Wednesday and since I was last here, Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge has moved from Friday back to Sunday.  I’m so confused.  However, the two are no longer in conflict, so my life is easier in that respect.  🙂  For this week, I offer you a sign I spotted while going with my parents to visit my brother and his family during my January visit to Arizona.  I’m all for what this sign stands for!!
