Last year, as I was walking from one building to another at my company campus, I saw this standing at the little garden beside the road.
I posted in instagram and facebook at the day, but ended up removing from facebook later because too many people thought it was creepy.
Let’s be Wild is “a community-driven travel & adventure site featuring stories and photos from people just like you. Even if you haven’t crossed the Sahara Desert on foot, we bet that you’ve got an outdoor tale others would enjoy!”
Every week they create a themed photo challenge to “encourages bloggers to head into the wild (or the backyard) and photograph something that they feel fits the weekly theme. Once you’ve posted your blog entry, comment on the Challenge theme that you’re entering with the link to your post! Each week we choose one first place winner, one audience choice winner, and five honorable mention winners. ”
Last week, the theme was Overlooked, because “The great outdoors is filled with things that are often overlooked by most people. People these days spend so much time hurrying through life, tied to their cell phones, that they often forget to look around and see the overlooked things in nature that make our world so special.”
I’ve been participating on the challenge for the past few weeks, and yesterday, when I visited their site to check the week’s winner, I was surprised to see that my entry was selected as one of the winner for honorable mentions.
This week’s Challenge is: Clouds!, which is a subject I’ve been taking pictures of for quite some time.
So here i’ll add 2 examples of the most recent ones that I liked.
They were both taken with my HTC 8X Windows phone, from the car, while waiting at the traffic lights, at around sunset time. I did some cropping just to take the road out of the picture (the phone stays in a littl holder at the dashboard, so there is always some dashboard and road on those pictures…)
I had created an entry for this challenge already (here), but I couldn’t resist posting this one, that shows a bug that got totally overlooked by me at the moment I took the shot. I saw it only on the computer screen, after uploading the file.
On my daily walks, sometimes I take a trail that goes along a freeway. At the trail head, in the space between the trail and the freeway entrace, there is a whole big mini forest of sprouted moss, that I’m sure gets overlooked more often than not…
