FOR SALE – Ocean Views! (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #38)

Walking on the beach early one morning back in Australia I came upon this sign. We were looking for something for sale that had ocean views but this?

Beach for Sale

Mowing isn’t something I’m particularly fond of but shovelling and bagging sand is even lower on the list so we passed, lol! Hopefully the sign was returned to its rightful owner for an actual sale.

Batman’s Sweet Side! (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #37)

The other day on closing our washroom door I couldn’t help but laugh when I noticed this.

Batman has a sweet side

In my haste one week-end to tidy up before visitors descended upon us, things went wherever they could with this being the end result – a batman mask hanging beside my cupcake shower cap.

Well, I though it was funny, lol! 🙂

Is this REALLY relief??? (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #35)

To see a boat on the other side of the bridge pylon, the land side, very high and very dry AND named Relief, seriously, you gotta wonder…

Is this REALLY relief

…was the boat named before or after it was moored??? Just askin‘!

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t POKE the Flower! (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #34)

Okay, so it’s not so much odd ball as unique maybe but until a post by Cee herself earlier in the month for one of her Flower of the Day photos, I had no idea that this flower was actually called a Fire Poker Flower!

Fire Poker Flower

Its statuesque beauty makes it more than striking! And of course now I know its name it all makes PERFECT sense. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself!

Melting Propeller (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #33)

Yes I know, the propeller isn’t really melting but you gotta admit, it really does kinda look that way thanks to the curvature of the window.

Melting Propeller...

Yes, this is what happens when you forget to bring your iPad and you have nothing to read or do on a two hour flight, you begin imagining the strangest of things, lol!

 

 

 

 

Polar Bear Holding Facility (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #32)

After my post this morning of my photo taken during our February snowstorm, I couldn’t resist posting this sign from Churchill, Manitoba last year.

OddBall Polar Bear Holding Facility

It’s not everyday you are standing outside a huge, and I mean ginormous, warehouse which is hosting 29 polar bears awaiting transfer away from the town centre and the people who live there.

Fair Suck of the WHAT??? (Cee’s Oddball Challenge #31)

Walking through the Vancouver Public Library I was more than a tad delighted when I stumbled upon the dictionary section. The Slang Dictionary particularly caught my eye as it contained such gems as this…

Australia you make me proud

What I was actually looking up was my grade five teacher’s favourite saying… fair suck of the sav! Translation: Sav in Australia is short for saveloy – the Australian, and English also I think, version of a hot dog.

Yes, Australia has many a fabulous saying I’ve come to discover over the years, warms a girl’s heart it does!

Polar Bear Transparency (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #30)

This was one of the first Polar Bears we had eye-contact last year so you can imagine how excited we all were when she stood up on her back legs, staring back at us. However this wasn’t quite the image I was expecting, lol.

Polar Bear Transparency

My guess since I was sitting inside the bus, photographing through the window glass, is that it’s a reflection of sorts. Be it a reflection of our surroundings from the glass behind us onto the window I was looking through, I couldn’t say.

Whatever the reason, it does make for a rather interesting, albeit eerie, photograph don’t you think? And a perfect candidate for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge, lol!

Bloke Full of Wind (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #29)

After seeing the LONG line-up outside the original Starbucks in Seattle, we found a nearby cafe to sit and catch our breath but we weren’t alone. This bloke kept looking at us…

Bob the BlowUp

He was the most intricate piece of balloon construction I’d ever seen. Unfortunately when it was time for us to move on, the lines from Starbucks had moved to this cafe meaning we didn’t have an opportunity to ask the origin of this bloke.

Whatever the reason for his existence though, I’m mighty glad we had a chance to have a coffee with him!

Extermination time! (Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge #27)

Walking around Tallinn, Estonia I came across some graffiti of a different kind.

Extermination Time

Perhaps it was an inside joke but when you’re not on the inside, it’s sometimes hard to get the joke. What can I say, I hate, no, I DESPISE cockroaches, yuk!
