Thematic Photographic 58 - Odd


Your throne awaits
Montreal, QC, August 2008 [Click to embiggen]


I take a lot of weird pictures. The kind of pictures that make folks stop and stare as I'm shooting them. The kind of photos that prompt the Doubting Thomases of our world to accuse me of wasting film (ha!) and time. Well, folks, it's my time to waste, and it turns out I rather enjoy wasting it. I'm odd that way.

Besides, I'd rather have a bizarre shot than no shot at all.

So for the next week, I'm hoping we'll all share some oddball shots that get the raised eyebrow look from friends and strangers alike. If it's just weird enough to be memorable, please share it on your blog and drop a link in a comment here. The more oddness, the better.

Your turn: Got an odd picture? (I'm willing to be you have lots, actually!) Do you know what Thematic Photographic is all about? Then start sharing. Need a TP primer? Read on:
  • Every Wednesday evening, at precisely 7 o'clock Eastern, I post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
  • Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...odd!
  • You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  • You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
  • If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry. Old or new, all photos are welcome.
  • You may post as many photos or links as you wish. For the next week, I'll be supporting this theme with a related picture/posting each day. I encourage you to do the same. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
  • Please share this link with friends, too, and encourage them to join in. The more, the merrier.
  • And please accept my thanks for your enthusiasm. Your participation has made TP a true highlight for me each and every week.

You should have triple-dog-dared your son to take a big 'ol poo in it. He's a boy . He woulda done it.
Mom would have wanted to kill you, but that only makes it more fun.

Okay, you win. I can't touch that one.

But my son, who is well acquainted with my opening subject, has a similar ... view of it.

Just inserted, into my post, a link back to this entry, as I should have done in the first place. Guess I should participate more often and get into the groove! Loving the entries so far, too!

I had an especially good time with this one, Carmi. I love your toilet. I posted one too. I can't wait to look through all the others!

Mine is here if anyone would like to check it out: http://tinyurl.com/lyweot

Kids often to have a different view of things to us adults, in more ways than one.

Jumping in at the last minute - when I saw your toilet shot I knew I had the right companion image ;-).
