Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

The challenge of unexpected seemed fun but challenging.

Added a couple you’ve seen but seemed good for the theme.  Knowing when to stop adding to the gallery is the difficult part.

  2. I love unexpected things – as long as they are happy ones. You showed some great ones Ruth E.

  3. I thought for a moment, a long one, that the plant was a Bigelow, Classic Blends . . . a great collection of surprises Ruth and how wonderful that the grandchildren have all these moments to look back on!

  4. As expected you captured the unexpected. My favorite – the history center in Virginia.

  6. Yum on the fried pickles!
    Yep- dog wash. There is one by us too. Kinda’ like a do it yourself car wash…for dogs.

  7. Wow, you had many great images in this post! Among my favorites were the leprechaun (those green tights are rockin’), the man “peeking” out of the van (it looks real!), Laura’s genuine look of surprise (so fun), the pink fountain (stunning), the NYPD car (I like their take on “CPR”), Maura waiting to catch a ball (AMAZING shot), and the fake geese (they look real to me, too!). Quite a line up!

  9. Unexpected is right, Ruth! The way the post loaded on my monitor, all I saw of the first pic was the guy in green from the mid-chest up. Imagine my surprise when I scrolled down to see the rest of the Leprechaun. Too funny. This was a great collection. I wonder how many didn’t make the cut. 🙂
