Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge and Sunday Trees

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge (COB) is all about those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.

Statue placed by Orlando Universal Resort at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando, Florida.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, while under construction in 2014, downtown Orlando, Florida, across from my office at the time.

The next two photos, besides being Odd Balls are being used as part of Becca’s Sunday Trees!

Crooked/leaning tree.  Did you ever come across one of those pictures that you just can’t figure out why you ever took it in the first place?

I have absolutely no idea what kind of tree this is. It was taken in 2014 at Leu Gardens in Winter Park, Florida. I took it because it looks like gargantuan peanuts growing in the tree!

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice (Architecture)

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in one of Sally’s challenges. I’ve chosen architecture this time. I just love the look of these two buildings.  These structures are side-by-side in downtown Orlando. The tall structure is the CNL Tower I and the door shown is the entrance to the Orlando City Hall.

I worked here for a number of years. I always liked the linear aspects of this building.2014-01-27 CNL_Fotor

Right next door was the Orlando City Hall. It sits in between the two CNL Towers. I always liked the geometric patterns at the entrance. And if you look closely at the circle at the top middle, you can see the reflection of the Bohemian Hotel from across the street.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice (Architecture)

The 4th Monday of the month is Challenger’s Choice at Lens and Pens by Sally.

I took this picture of Orlando City Hall a while back. I just liked the design of the door and windows. I didn’t realize until later that the reflection of the Grand Bohemian Hotel across the street showed up in the small window above the door!

Centered - Lake Eola

This sculpture is titled “Centered” by CJ Rench, located at Lake Eola, Orlando, Florida. It makes me think of two hands holding up something in the center.

It’s the 5th Monday challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally so I thought I would have a little fun with my last week’s photos which you can see here.

Orlando-Church St Clock-B&W

Yes, it feels this hot here in the Orlando area…
We’re looking at mid 90s (F) with 75% humidity…
Feels like it’s at least 100 degrees…

Orlando-Church St Clock 2-Goo

Okay, so I had Dali on my mind! It still expresses how we’re feeling! 😆

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice (Architecture)

Lens and Pens by Sally‘s 4th Monday is a Challenger’s Choice. I chose a couple of architectural photos I took a while back while next to Church Street Station in Orlando. The tall structure is the SunTrust Building where I once worked a long time ago! Do you have a preference on angle?
