Do you take a lot of odd pictures when you travel?

One of my rock pictures - This was taken in Virginia on the way to Ohio.

On our way to Ohio I of course decided to get out the camera. I took a lot of pictures of trees, rocks, road signs, menus, just anything that caught my eye. My mother thought it was odd that I took so many pictures of things like that. She said only you would take pictures of things like rocks. I disagree, I think I cant be the only one in the world that takes pictures of odd things that i like the look of. What about you, do you take pictures of things that other people might find odd?

Oh, I am like you. Besides taking pictures of the scenery and objects on interest, I would take pictures of anything unusual. Even I had myself posing in an unusual way.

I like to take picture of myself, but usually without face. either from behind, from the side or I cover my face with leaves, hands, papers, anything.

I take pictures of anything, and everything! That's the good thing about the digital age - you can be as trigger happy as you can be! In the olden days, the "film" wouldn't be allowed by my mother to be wasted on silly things.

toothbrush holders - aren't our toothbrush holders fun? mine is missing a paw. aww.
I don't even have to travel to shoot odd things. At home I shoot my room, my toothbrush holder , my violin. One time I took a picture of the loo. At the office, I shoot what's on my desktop window , the contents of my bag.

When I have a travel, usually I will take sceneary and people's pictures. Perhaps some of them seem to be odd. However, today almost everybody uses the digital camera to take photos. So it doesn't matter how many photos you will take. As long as the storage cards can store them, it is no problem at all. It won't be a waste anyway. I love China

I certainly do. I used to make my ex so mad at me. I had to stop to use the bathroom and that was irritating but when I would see something(like the glass house made of bottles)and make him turn around and lose time getting from point A to point B he was one upset dude.

I do take odd pictures myself and had a lot of it, I love to take them myself be it common or something new to the eye I would love to grab my camera and take a shot of it. I love the picture of the rock you took, its nice also for friends to see each other's photo taken, its interesting how things like rocks or other part of nature differs from one place to another.

Thank you! my mother has never really gotten into taking pictures so i guess she doesnt understand my love of odd pictures. It is really fun when you look closer at the pictures later and find you got something small you may have missed if you hadnt taken the pic! I also like to put them into photoshop and make them different also. I havent had the chance yet to do that!

When I go off traveling to different countries I like to take lots of the photos of the scenery. I like to take photos of buildings, beaches, the countryside and the wildlife. I take a number of odd looking photos. I have travel albums of the places I have been to. Family members and friends like to look at my latest travel photo album. They would see a couple of odd looking photos.

I can get really touristy when I go places. especially on road trips. I think those cool rock/boulders are really amazing! We don't have them on country roads here, but when I road tripped up to Canada, I saw the same big boulder-type rocks on each side of the row and I thought they were totally amazing and interesting. It's so funny how one person, who might live in Ohio or Canada will take these things for granted, but an outsider who hasn't been exposed to this kind of nature or scenery - like you or me, will be totally astounded by it's beauty! I love stuff like that. I am guilty also of taking a lot of those "driving pictures" - pictures that LOOKED prettier when you stared out the window than when you took a picture through a car window. It's the best part about travelling though, taking pictures, I think.

I think its great that you take photos of odd things! You probably have a very good eye for great pictures. Don't let your Mom or anyone else discourage you from what interests you!

Erilyn those are not odd pictures, you have artistic eye. perhaps not just everyone appreciate it. But sometimes it is really nice to look at things through the eyes of another person.

I love to take pictures when I travel. Photography is my hobby and taking pics is like haveing plenty of soveriors. I may also chose to take pics of anything that I may find intersting. wheither it is odd or not is up to the person looking at my photos. I am sure that over my lifetime I have taken someting that was considered weird or odd by someone.

Yes I like to take a lot of odd pictures when I go for travelling anywhere because also it is my hobby to take pictures of many good places. So I always take mostly odd photographs of many places which I liked. I think it is good to take snaps of places where you go because it always memories us for our journey.
