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.
Well, while waiting on some genealogy documents to come in for an ancestor post I’m working on, I decided I’d go ahead and post some photos I took last weekend when we walked down to Lake Apopka. I will say that it was sooo hot! I guess the afternoon is not the time to go walking in Central Florida! It was a beautiful day but, as usual at this time of year, the weather was having a tough time deciding when to rain. It didn’t start up until later in the afternoon. I was hoping this trip to catch some gators — well, not really “catch” any, but get some better photos. I did. I still think these are very young ones because they’re not real big. Of course, they’re much bigger than I’d ever want to come face to face with!
So, here you go. I hope you enjoy!
Heading out the pier to take some photos. Halfway to the end we saw the following…
And they saw us. Oh, they were really playing it cool.
The only bird that landed on the pier while we were at the end. I have no idea what kind it is.
Just sitting on one of the benches at the end of the pier enjoying the view!
Okay, it’s too hot for man and beast. We’re outta here!
