Unexpected. The world is an interesting place: we stumble upon unexpected things each day, like signs that are unintentionally amusing, bizarre sculptures, or even strange evidence of a miniature world on the side of a building (like the door and window in the shot above, discovered in San Francisco’s Mission District).

So, your photo challenge this week is to capture something unexpected. You can also interpret the theme in other ways: a street scene or landscape that just doesn’t look quite right, an impromptu portrait of a loved one, or any other image that reveals a sense of surprise.

cheri lucasIN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT MEANS UNEXPECTED TO YOU.

We look forward to seeing all of your unexpected shots!

  1. As I was walking across a bird sanctuary suddenly a flock of starlings took to the air, they were swooping twisting and turning, I hoped they would fly along the coastline but as usual they stayed inland. I managed to shoot the picture across the reed beds. The other picture was shafts of orange light which suddenly appeared through the clouds, this was where I was hoping the starlings would fly.
