Lens-Artists Challenge #189 – Odds and Ends

This week Tina leads LAPC “Odds and Ends”: “let’s embrace their differences and focus on our “Odds and Ends”’

This is such a creative and fun theme, but pretty challenging. Normally, if photos are odd, I put them into my “trash can” quickly. For this theme, I went through hundreds of photos in my archives, and found a few.

Bagelson the wall, Seattle:

Jelly beans look odd under the clear crystal ball:

You can find all kinds of fish in Barcelona seafood market. This on is pretty odd to me:

Fish sticks at the Kyoto food market:

Yelp posted top 10 Best Funky Decor Restaurants in Dallas. The Rise made it to the list:

Cutting a roasted pig with a plate, then throwing the plate on the floor, Segovia Spain. 🙂

Special thanks to Karina, last week’s Special Places Guest Host. We enjoyed visiting your special places through your beautiful photos and stories.

Tina has a cool collection for this theme. We look forward to seeing your “odds and ends” images. Be sure to link them to Tina’s post here, and to use the Lens-Artists Tag to help us find you.

Patti will lead us next week on her Pilotfish blog. Be sure to visit her.

  2. Hi Amy

    Excellent topic week, love it!

    Bagels on the Wall is a pretty off the wall image, pun intended! Those Kyoto fish sticks are unlike any other fish sticks of my acquaintance, definitely an odd capture. And that’s definitely some funky decor at The Rise. Interesting odd photos, all of them!

    Apologies for  being tardy in commenting on your great post. Usually I’m more timely!

    Here’s my Lens Artists Odds and Ends topic offering.

  4. What a great mixture of oddities! I’m learning that many of my fellow bloggers tend to discard any photos they don’t think they can use in their blogs, whereas I keep all of those that pass my quality tests even if I don’t intend to use them in my blog. I never know if I may want them some day and meanwhile each one is a memory 🙂

  5. By the time I came to the cutting of the pig I was sure you’d sorted the photos in ascending order of oddness.Maybe I should try cutting a roast chicken with a plate to check how well it was roasted. The bagels on the wall look positively tame in comparison.

    • It’s pretty odd… Ana had the same experience of the rosted pig. She says, “I have a visit to Segovia pending and try their roasted pig, cut with a plate, they say that this is how you know it is tender, although I do not understand why they have to break the plate afterwards”.

  6. Interesting post, Amy. I have a visit to Segovia pending and try their roasted pig, cut with a plate, they say that this is how you know it is tender, although I do not understand why they have to break the plate afterwards 🙄

  7. Terrific choices this week Amy – your archive search was very fruitful! Absolutely loved the donuts on the wall – that would NEVER have gone to a trash file in my world! I must admit tho, that the “fish sticks” kind of grossed me out. Do they really eat them straight off the stick?!?!?!

    • Sorry about the fish sticks, Tina. Japanese charcoal fish (?), I’m not sure how popular it is. The display of donuts is pretty creative. 🙂
