Weird for Sunday Scribblings

Sunday Scribblings prompts with weird






This is a tough prompt, since I can hardly think of anything that isn't weird, but by fluke and circumstance (and maybe a bit of strange thrown in) this is a scene I saw today on my living room coffee table.

A DVD, just completed, was upside down, the sun came through the window at the right angle and shadowed a cactus-type plant. The photo is just as it emerged from my point-and-shoot camera.

This isn't as weird as it gets around here but, for today, this is enough! Hope you enjoy this serendipitous image as much as I do!

I don't even know what I thought when I first saw the picture - pretty color, upside down bowl maybe? Didn't seem too out of place - you usually have fractals but, whatever. Then you told what it was. That is so cool and wouldn't it make a for real awesome label!

The shadow makes for in interesting picture. A nice contrast to the purplish color on the DVD disk.

Very nice. Gotta love the point and shoots.

How do you get that effect with your camera? Nice.

I love the way that light and shadow bounces off and around the patterns on DVD and CD disks. What was the shadow plant actually from.

I'm impressed you noticed--good eye. I probably would've passed it and never seen the beauty lying there.

Wonderful photo and as Catherine said, I too would probably have never noticed, so besides being a great post, it reminded me to slow down and pay attention to things! Thanks.

Why, yes, I did enjoy this image, this post! Very much. I love being captured in the same frame as the fantastic. A few months ago, I looked up from my laptop, and there was a picture projected on the wall in front of me. The setting sun was streaming its light through tall grass outside a small, high window and framed a cloudy yellow-gray picture of it. I snapped photos and watched as the picture slid off the wall and vanished. It’s here if you’d like to take a look : )

Less weird than truly special to capture a moment in time. I appreciate this time capsule!
