Odd Ball Photos for Cee’s Challenge

Every week, Cee invites us to post those photos we take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category. I often take random photos which just happen to tickle my funny-bone. Here are a few of them.

This freak sideshow at Coney Island, sparked my curiosity enough to take this photo, but there was no way that I was going to go inside for a look, even at the bargain price of 50c.

On our way to Key West, we stopped for refreshments and as it turned out, to buy me a new pair of sandals. πŸ™‚ Finding the restroom proved quite easy, as it was well signposted.

This rather weird reflection in my crystal ball, was taken at our last house just before we packed up all our stuff, and serves as a reminder of a time when I had a furnished sitting room. I’m hoping that before long, the state of our home renovations will be such that I can unpack my ornaments and have fun finding a place to put them.

I smile whenever I look at this photo of Mr. Igasho in his orange jacket. He looks almost human, and like an escaped convict looking to see if the coast is clear.

Wishing you all a very happy Thursday. Hope my oddballs gave you a few smiles.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: What’s this fascination with old loos?

Cee invites us every week to post some of our ‘Odd Ball’ pics, which to me means, the ones that we’re not sure why we took, as they don’t fit into any other category than ‘Odd Ball’.

The centrepiece of UShaka Marine World in Durban South Africa, is a wonderful aquarium, set in a recreated, rusty old cargo ship from the 1920’s. The crew’s ablution section, especially the toilet area, seemed to hold a great fascination for most people, including our family. This first picture was taken by hubby when our two South African grandchildren came to stay with us for a holiday. My mom was game to have a seat and rest her weary legs; the children just did as they were told, but as you may notice, I avoided sitting on the loo in public.

When our granddaughter came over from New York, some ten years later, we took her to the aquarium, and of course it was mandatory that she should also have her pic taken on one of these loos. Family tradition, I guess. πŸ™‚ I’m not sure what happened with this photo, but it sure looks really weird. Love the sparkly shoes though!
