    Do any of you have pictures which don't correspond to "exhibition standards" but still have something intangible that you like? If so, please share them here.

    I'll kick off with this...

    Hundreds. And thousands. Probably. However, I was working on a project yesterday in Edinburgh, and, as is my wont, was shooting images of the journey home from the car. It's a thing I like to do. Shoot from train windows and the like. Sometimes, like yesterday, I like to experiment with a slow shutter speed, which combined with the movement of the transportation can have some interesting effects. When we got home, the sunset on the water and the people out for one last promenade caught my eye so I nipped out fast to get a couple of shots. Only I forgot to change any settings. Got this. Rather like it.

    An un-tweaked Mary through her car window - walking back from the butcher's!

    Seriously spooky, last night was pondering posting exactly this thread - pictures you like despite not being 'right' or being 'odd.' :eek:

    Only 1? :)


    I took a lot of pictures of this, on the day in question, and none of them are properly in focus, and each of them has something that just ruins the picture a little, but I liked this one.

    At the Tokyo National Museum. Plenty of photogenic artifacts on display, but I shoot the phone and fire extinguisher. Nice walls too. :)

    A couple more from Japan - shared before but still making me chuckle:


    And of course who can explain what the multipurpose bed is being used for in the pictogram?

    Love this. Totally bemused by it all and full of questions! The wall looks like a lace cloth over whatever surface is underneath. The telephone still reminds me of a cheeky engineer who took mine away after it was affected by a lightning strike. The plate on the floor - drain or power socket? and the gorgeous fire extinguisher. Well, the whole thing would keep me occupied and thinking for a long time!! Well done! :)

    Geez, I think about 99% of my photos would classified as "odd, but interesting pictures" :eek: … but, here's, from December 31st. albeit pre Midnight Madness ;), ….

    Dec31-16-AP-Sat-JS011059 copy.jpg

    It just seemed out of place on a major shopping street in Vancouver, on NYE :eek:
    As well, I'm glad the people in background are OOF, cuz, they were giving me
    some "odd, but, interesting looks" ;)

    Where possible, I like to try and get the people giving me odd but intersting looks, to let me take a photograph of them to go alongside my odd but interesting photos. Sometimes they refuse of course, because it's perfectly fine to gawp at me but not the other way around, but mostly they are quite happy to be included in my mad little world. I've heard some fascinating stories from people this way!

    I took this one about 4 years ago in Belfast. I really wish I'd managed to get the full circle in.
