What the heck? I can see the comments now - what the photog saw as unusual will not be so unusual to others and get trolled for it.

thus the challenge.

that is actually more unusual than unusual objects in their regular places.

But, doesn't meet the challenge and I'll not enjoy seeing everyday objects in unusual places - that would be a different challenge would it not?

Unusual for today...or unusual as a whole? A pay phone or corded phone is unusual nowadays...

For some yes, for me, there is a phone with a cord in my bedroom and a telephone kiosk 300 yards from my front door. Am pretty sure nomatter what you shoot it won't be unusual to everybody but the more 'unusual' to the masses will most likely win through.

I want to change my username to Tom_Jones and then put "Its not unusual" for a comment on every image... :)

So that the one you enter in the competition will be unusual because you will not add that line to it? Hmmm DNMC the title would be playing too big a role ;) Before I get a huge flame going that was a joke! ;)

Maybe you can get some inspiration here? unusual hotels
Refresh the page a few times and each time you'll get to see different unusual hotels. LOL some of them even in my country.

Or this one is nice too unusual planes
But those are all normal objects in unusual places. This challenge will be a difficult one, because what's unusual???? Everything is here with one purpose or other and very usual for some people.
LOL, even a tree is unusual for those who live in concrete envirements.

Hope we don't get to see dressed up animals, but then, even that is very usual in some parts of this earth.
Oh well, I might have an idea, I saw something very unusual the other day, have to take a picture of it (again).

Luckily for dpcers it's not an unusual objects AND background challenge. :P

A self portrait should do fine in this challenge =)
05/27/2009 11:36:01 PM · #18
Joining with other frequent early challenge lamenters: Here is an image from the day before the "Unusual Objects" challenge began. (Not a self portrait). Just as well. Captured another image the next day that probably meets the spirit of the challenge better.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/81362/120/794209.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/81362/120/794209.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I have a stonking shot for this challenge and if I'd shot it with the lensbaby it would be my FS shot. That said it will garner more than its fair share of DNMC votes as its something I see daily.

*edited to add*

Scrolling up and reading my last post this shot is something normal in an unusual place so I'd vote myself down as well lol.

I'm sure that I will be pinged for my photo. Sometimes that's the price you pay for trying to be different. So what's another low score?
05/28/2009 08:05:44 PM · #21
Ive unsubmitted my shot and entered it into the FS so unless I get another great idea I'll not be in this challenge.

Geeze, you drama queen, you have 3 days :P

Submitted mine but feel it'll go the same way as my still life entry. Trying to learn something new and figured I had to jump in for that to happen. Guessing it'll wind up a high 4 low 5. I thought it was a cool unusual object. Hope I at least get some comments on it.

Good luck everyone

Do you think that animals and/or people will be considered "objects" for this challenge?

According to Dictionary.com:
ob-ject / noun
1. anything that is visible or tangible and is relatively stable in form.
2. a thing, person, or matter to which thought or action is directed: an object of medical investigation.
3. the end toward which effort or action is directed; goal; purpose: Profit is the object of business.
4. a person or thing with reference to the impression made on the mind or the feeling or emotion elicited in an observer: an object of curiosity and pity.
5. anything that may be apprehended intellectually: objects of thought.
6. Optics. the thing of which a lens or mirror forms an image.
7. Grammar. (in many languages, as English) a noun, noun phrase, or noun substitute representing by its syntactical position either the goal of the action of a verb or the goal of a preposition in a prepositional phrase, as ball in John hit the ball, Venice in He came to Venice, coin and her in He gave her a coin. Compare direct object, indirect object.
8. Computers. any item that can be individually selected or manipulated, as a picture, data file, or piece of text.
9. Metaphysics. something toward which a cognitive act is directed.
