Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, please post a photo that is unusual in some way for you, whether it be through technique, by subject, or in some other unique way. This theme is wide open to interpretation because only you know what is unusual to you.

Fungus. Fungus is definitely an unusual topic for me. But this fungus was so unusual and so compositionally interesting to me that I had to take a series of pictures.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage II

Collage:  An assortment, a collection, a hodgepodge. This week, share one — whether found in the wild or assembled yourself.   The Daily Post ~Michelle Weber

Yesterday I came across this collection of beachy material and snapped a few shots. No changes were made to the composition; this is exactly as the objects appeared in the wild. In the sense that hodgepodge is collage, I believe this fits this week’s challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Ambience is the atmosphere of one’s surrounding environment….Things like light, temperature, smell, sound, and sometimes taste, all work together to create ambience.  ~The Daily Post, Jeff Golenski

The grounds at this restaurant create exceptional ambience. Yes, there is warmth and light, but the ocean right at its edge provided instant ambience for me.
