Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge: My daily in life in an odd ball way

All these photographs were taken accidently. The iphone 5 has  a feature the iphone 4S didn’t and that is that photos can be taken via the loudness controls, the on/off switch as well as the normal red button. As a consequence I have found myself taking lots of floor photos and other unintentional shots. These are some of those but when I look at them I find they portray my daily life in what I would call an odd ball fashion.

1. (above) Although I don’t hop in the car everyday as I can walk most places I want to go there are many days I do and when I do I love being behind the wheel.

This photo had me wondering for a while what on earth I had taken a photo of then I realised that it was a close up of the pants I wore that day. Yes I do get dressed every day.

The table decoration at our end of walk stop at Jaspers for coffee and something yummy for breakfast. This day it was wet or threatening to rain as I have put our umbrella untidily on the table. Apart from the brolly you can find us here almost every morning.

We do this twice a day, gather the poop bags and the leads and head on out the door on our dog walks.

On our walk Zac loves to meet other dogs.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  2. Ah, yes. The volume control photo-taker. That thing is awful. I should keep some of my accidental photos. I’m too quick to delete.

    Oh dear! That’s so funny. At least with digital you can just delete. In the old days it wasn’t much fun picking up a set a beautifully printed bloopers!

    I just go an iPhone 5. I’m amazed at how well your photos turned out. I may have to play with my camera on my iPhone now. Thanks Irene.

  7. That’s a creative way to use those inadvertent shots, Irene. I have lots of those, too, although I usually delete them.

    Those odd snapshots really are snapshots of life! We go on poop walks too, but I have a pooper scooper and rake which reminds me that I have some raking to do.
