Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Odd Couples

The Friendly Friday Photographic challenge is about community and interacting with other bloggers, sharing everyday photographs of things from our world and is hosted by bloggers Amanda, here at ‘StPA’ (Something to Ponder About) and Sandy at The Sandy Chronicles.


On my afternoon walk today, I spotted two inconguous pieces of nature. Mushroom fungi are opportunists, taking advantage of recent rain, in our region. The fungi have no real place here, or do they?

Nature is usually the master of harmony, but sometimes things are found together that work well, but look decidedly a little odd.

Weekly Prompt

The prompt for this week’s photo challenge is

Odd Couples

Your odd couple might be two different kind of friends, animals or objects, or a contrast of two incongruous items.

It is an opportunity to showcase contrasting photographs and a fitting title for Valentine’s Day!

When I saw the two houses with vastly different colour schemes, and the two porta loos, or builder’s toilets, sitting side by side, they looked like a bit of an odd couple.

I should tell you that I live on a estate construction site, so it is no surprise that a new estate with multiple houses being built at the same time might have porta loos, side by side!

Here are a few more odd couples to get you thinking about this week’s challenge.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature

The Phone camera is fast replacing hand held digital SLR or auto focus cameras. These were taken with a HTC, a while ago.

Wood rotting fungi are a wonderful organism. Paradoxically parasitic, yet self-sustaining! Their end product is a gift to the soil.
