Picture This #224 ~ Quirky

I like Danette's choice for a theme. There are many things we can observe that are quirky.
The first image is from my brother's garden. He excels in the abstract. When I saw this boot used as a planter it had to be photographed.

This figure was taken in front of a home in Tucson, AZ. I titled it "All That Remains Of Her".

This man is a vendor at the Eastern States Exposition. I asked him if I could photograph him.

  1. These are all quirky as can be Roberto! The boot is a great idea. The quirky lady still has lots of character, maybe even more since she is broken. The hat is the quirkiest I have ever seen! Great job on the theme!

  3. I love all three, Robert! They are really quirky. Good use of that boot... interesting figure in the second... do you think it's like that as a result of an act of vandalism? The man in the third has a nice smile... looking at his hat, it seems he's already ready for Christmas...

    1. Thank you, Belita. I don't know the residents of the home so I don't know why the figure is broken. When I return to Tuscon I hope that I can remember where is this house. I didn't even notice what this man was selling.

  4. Robert, I love your brother's use of the boot. It looks like a grand old boot and I am so glad he didn't toss it out. Nice shot of the statue in Tucson. Even broken it has a sense of style. Love the guy and love the hat. You got him with a terrific smile on his face! Great shots!

    1. Thanks, Benni. My brother doesn't waste anything. I could do a photographic essay on what he has in his garden. I'm pleased that the guy was a willing subject.

  5. Hi Robert!! Three great shots for Danette's theme!! Very creative use of a boot in the first shot. The guy in the third shot looks like he's all ready for Christmas. my fave shot is the second one. A rather unique and quirky figure. I wonder it it has been damaged, or if it is supposed to look like that? Either way, I like it.

  6. Thanks, Mitch. I don't know how the figure was broken. I happened to pass by this home and go out of my car. The man does look like he's ready for Christmas.
