Weekly Photo Challenge – Against the Odds

Pulled in to park and, almost before stopping, a gull plopped itself on the hood. As unlikely as this was, a second one joined the party within seconds. And there they sat, staring intently at me. (I think they were interested in a handout, despite the signs admonishing ‘Do not feed the animals!”) Quickly, before they hopped off, I took a photo through the windshield. I need not have rushed. When I opened the door and got out  these birds did not budge an millimeter. So I took the second photo. But, as odd as this was, who would have thought all this would occur just a couple of days before this week’s challenge topic? And further, what are the odds that a couple of challenges ago (Repurpose) I essentially had the same experience – take photo that fit the topic right before knowing the topic. Surely against the odds! (Hmm. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket 😉 )

Weekly Photo Challenge – Repurpose

Mobile Mail

Some mailboxes perched on a piece of old farm equipment (some sort of hay equipment, I’d guess). Struck me as ‘mobile mail’ as in take-your-address-with-you-when-you-move sort of thing – just what every mobile home owner needs! Anyway, I photographed this yesterday before I saw that the Photo Challenge topic was repurpose for which this definitely fits. (Really! Cue up the Twilight Zone music 😉 .)
