The Daily Post photo challenge this week is to capture something unexpected. You can also interpret the theme in other ways: a street scene or landscape that just doesn’t look quite right, an impromptu portrait of a loved one, or any other image that reveals a sense of surprise.

We were walking along the West Orange Trail in Winter Garden one morning and happened upon the scene in the picture below.  Here in Florida, the Florida State Seminoles and the University of Florida Gators are heavy-duty football rivals.  I have no idea how long this has been here.  I’m not much into sports but I definitely agree with the message on the sign:

Tough Times Don’t Last

That’s something we should all remember as we go about our daily lives.
