COB Photo Challenge – June 17, 2018

COB Photo Challenge – June 17, 2018

cob-bannerCee’s Oddball Challenge is for those photographs that don’t really fit into a common category. There is no theme to this challenge; what is odd ball is up to the participant.

Many of the photos I take on vacation are used as reminders rather than photographic gems I share with others. Last week I traveled to the Vail Valley where the photo below were taken. I hope you like the odd ball’s that I have chosen to share this week.

We stopped a the Welcome Center in Leadville, Colorado and my inner genealogist was immediately attracted to the list of books below.

Living in Oklahoma, the need to flag a fire hydrant so it could be found in a snow drift is very odd indeed.

I was walking through Vail Village, past the river, when I noticed this worker having his lunch. I thought what a great view for spending your  lunch hour.

This was taken at an event in Vail. There is a world of difference in how trash and recyclables are handled between Colorado and my home state of Oklahoma.

I can’t remember the last time I used one of these for a hotel room.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photos – May 13, 2018

cob-bannerCee’s Oddball Challenge is for those photographs that don’t really fit into a common category. There is no theme to this challenge; what is odd ball is up to the participant. I hope you like the photos I selected this week. 

I took my first photo at Historic St. Mary’s City, Maryland, a living museum. My husband and I visited St. Mary’s several years ago because his family entered the United States at the point in the late 1600s.

This one came from Medicine Park, Oklahoma, a small resort town constructed out of cobblestones that are native to the area.

What an inviting place to sit!

For this week, I have chose some odd vacation photos. The  “Kokopelli” below was discovered in Tucumcari, New Mexico.

“Scrappy” is an unusual elk to be sure. Taken when we stopped for gas, somewhere in South Dakota.

 Many towns have taken to painting murals on the sides of old buildings to commemorate the town’s history and culture. I can’t remember the town, but the two below were taken in Colorado.

Of course, if you are looking for oddities, there is always Branson, Missouri
