Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Barnacles are unusual little creatures.

Unusual toadstool

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

  1. Where do you find the photo challenge prompt? I loved that closeup abstract of the barnacles, it reminds me of tufa. 🙂

    Well done with the Unusual theme. 🙂

  3. Amy says:

    Great photos for the Unsual theme! I posted a few photos of Fredericksburg. Maybe it’ll refresh your memory of Texas Hill County. Have a great week!

  4. Leah says:

    Very unusual! And very cool.

    Barnacles are interesting. Don’t think I’ve seen a toadstool quite like that one.

  6. Dor says:

    Clever girl. These are lovely shots and yes, truly unusual.

  7. E.C. says:

    Beautifully unusual! Great choices for the theme! 🙂

  8. Love the photos…especially the barnacles. I am captivated and fascinated by everything about the sea. The toadstool looks like the dining room pedestal table for the woodland fairies.

      You are the second person to mention fairies in conjunction with that toadstool. Now that I think of it, I do remember there being fairies around it. Wonder why my camera didn’t capture them?

  9. Great photos! I’ve always loved toadstools…it’s the whole fairy thing!

  10. I always enjoy your photos!

    And by abandon the roads I mean bikes, trains and light rail. I’ve become addicted to them.

    I’m with you on finding someone older for inspiration;) I’m taking art lessons as we speak! Who knows, I may abandon the roads altogether. Great shots BTW

      What kind of art lessons, GCB? My father took up watercolors when he was 81. He only lived to 83, so he didn’t get very far, but he loved it.

        The City of Sydney provides all sorts of stuff for residents. I came across watercolour basic painting and thought I’d give it a go. I fancy myself in a smock in the middle of a field with a paintbrush in one hand and glass of champs in the other.

      • Coming East says:

        I wish I were artistic, GCB, but I can’t even draw stick figures. I don’t think lessons would help me.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
