This week’s challenge is to share a photo of something unlikely. An object or person in an unlikely place, an unpredictable experience, a serendipitous accident: we want the expected.
Here’s a series of chance encounters with living and non-living things we normally don’t see around on a usual day like this cute little dog I’d meet during one of my walks in the middle of nowhere. He followed me around for about five kilometers till I reached the highway then he turned around and went back in the forest.
For this week’s challenge, point your camera at something or someone that puts a smile on our face (or just show a smiling face).
Cute and Quirky animals (or anything for that matter).
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Anyone who has a garden knows that plants have their own minds and grow and stand where they please. And it doesn’t stop there. When you have a garden, you have visitors and they have their own surprises in petto. Not always in a nice way perhaps but C’est la vie.
When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo – symmetry, or color, or contrast – and it’s my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.
I want art galleries, I want forests, I want waterfalls, I want oceans, I want long drive, I want concerts, I want book stores, I want rooftops, I want kisses, I want star gazing, I want to travel, I want to feel…
