Cars we don’t see much of anymore

For Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge 7/22/18  CARS we don’t see much of anymore

I love cars, always have. Raced them as a youngster (on the track of course). I worked on them more than most girls my age when I was young. I have always been fascinated by the lines and styles. Here are just a few I’ve captured over the years, hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed looking through them.

Will it go ’round in circles

For Cee’s Odd ball photo challenge: Circles

When I first saw this weeks prompt, I couldn’t think of any pictures of circles that I would have taken. Ever. How wrong could I possibly be? Well, pretty wrong it appears. Here are a few from my archives and recent expeditions:

full moon and street light

And finally, this wee bitty mushroom from my front yard, yesterday

Til next time ~every day from here to there, Oddball photo ops are everywhere ~ shamelessly ripped off from Dr. Seuss.

Cee’s Oddball Photos – Food and places

For Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge this week some of the oddest foods I’ve ever seen. Don’t get me wrong, the foods were all fabulous but somehow just unexpected.

It’s just a trailer, a shack on wheels, on the side of the road in Kaikoura, NZ. Best Paua Fritters anywhere.

Best french fries ever, at a roadside rest area near Fuzan China

Finally, this novelty from the land where food and anime have become art forms:
