Embracing the Unexpected...

My lovely friend Guin is having a photography contest at here photo blog, and I couldn't help but enter:)  Here's how Guin describes the theme:

The subjects must be something out of the ordinary, something unnoticed but beautiful once you see it. Something different. I know this sounds like a lot to ask, but I mean, a flower stuck in the rook of a tree, an interesting crowd of people,a small single clover, something in an odd position.

Wow - out-of-place but beautiful.  I love capturing that kind of thing.
I quickly picked out the four pictures in my head that I wanted to enter - you'll notice that most of them are kind of relating to the examples above:-)



Well, this one is actually a bit of a joke. It's not exactly a "good" photo and I'm not sure if it quite fits the theme, but it's just about my favorite thing ever.  As you might have guessed, I took this on my trip to Rome.  Dad and I were just exiting the Colosseum when we saw this dude texting and decided that I NEEDED to get a picture of it=)  He looks so tough, so serious, so fierce, I wondering what he was texting about?  ;-)

Well, that's that, my lovelies!  Be sure to check out Guin's blog to learn more about her contest!

Which entry is your favorite?
Love and Blessings,

  7. Hannah,
    I hope you don't think I'm "stalking" you because I keep leaving comments both yesterday & today. :~) Anyways, I'm sure you don't mind. It's just that I finally have some time to read my friend's blogs!!

    So.... I just HAD to say something when I saw that Roman "solider" texting! How bizarre!!! lol, it just cracks me up laughing!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a note - each and every one brightens up my day. I do my best to get back to commenters and return the favor, too.
