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. 🙂 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.

Lookin’ Through Windows for Ed’s Sunday Stills Challenge

A person can see some really interesting things when looking through windows. I try not to peep through house windows as I walk past, but sometimes the temptation is just too much. 🙂 I guess it would be very cheeky to take pics of the inside of someone’s private dwelling, so I haven’t any of those.

Of course, at the aquarium there are lots of windows to protect the viewers from the occupants of those glass cases. Little Sienna can smile, knowing she’s quite safe from the huge shark only metres behind her.

Spectators can happily take photos of the Manta rays, and a host of other fishies. Whatever did man do before the invention of glass? It’s such a useful material. Did you realise that it’s been around since 3,500 BC?

I bet Sienna never thought she’d be able to drive a London bus when she visited South Africa.

Here’s a view from the car window, which is not at all surprising when visiting the Lion Park. IMG_0664

Finally, when taking a pic of the signs for sale at our local hardware store, I got lots of reflections through the window.

Amusing Signs for Sue’s Word a Week Challenge.

Sue has asked us to share some signs for this week’s challenge. I’m always on the lookout for signs, and have been known to demand that hubby slam on brakes when I spot a good one.

Travelling through Cornwall last August, I was intrigued by this one, and it wasn’t even as though Christmas was just around the corner.

My sister sent me this one after a visit to her local grocery store. Obviously spelling wasn’t this sign writer’s best subject at school. It did make me giggle though.

Half way along our beach promenade is a restaurant run by the Life Savers Association. I would happily pay to ring the bell if Dolphins should appear whilst I was eating breakfast there.

Since our return here a few weeks ago, I’ve noticed a distinct lack of Doggy Doo along the beautifully paved promenade. I wonder if this sign has anything to do with the cleaner environment.

I’m quite infamous for getting lost, and this signpost in San Pedro would make me even more confused than usual. The ‘STOP’ sign is probably the one I should take the most notice of. I’m sure if I just stood still for a while, hubby would be sure to find me.

Today I’ve been so busy in the house, cleaning, washing, and sorting out stuff to take with us and deciding what to give away, as we start to pack for our move. I could really do with one or both of these buttons.

I know one shouldn’t laugh at people’s tombstones, but this one in the graveyard next to the O.K.Corral in Arizona, did make me giggle. Poor old Lester; what a way to go.

My Sister-in-Law in England has two Irish sons who absolutely fit this advertisement posted out on her deck. I don’t know how much they charge, but whatever it is,  you’d certainly get your money’s worth.

So there you have eight signs to choose from. My favourite would be the Kitchen Maid one. What’s yours?
