Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

Cheri Lucas Rowlands gives us the following challenge this week: “Unexpected. The world is an interesting place: we stumble upon unexpected things each day, like signs that are unintentionally amusing, bizarre sculptures, or even strange evidence of a miniature world on the side of a building. So, your 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.  IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT MEANS UNEXPECTED TO YOU.” Be sure to check out the other entries here.

The best things in life are unexpected-because there were no expectations. -Eli Khamarov

Any human anywhere will blossom in a hundred unexpected talents and capacities simply by being given the opportunity to do so. -Doris Lessing

Keep awake therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But understand this: if the owner of house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour. -Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew 24:42-44

  1. That makes me smile. I was just talking with someone a few days ago about the coming of the Lord. We know that will be unexpected, but what a joy, too.

    That’s why we celebrate seasons like Advent, coming up on December first, to prepare and remind us of staying alert and awake, during which we read and proclaim these and similar words of Jesus.

  6. This will be an unforgettable moment for your niece for sure! Thanks for sharing and God bless you!
