We are always curious, always inquisitive, always picking up odds and ends for our patchwork minds, since there is no knowing when and where they may fit into some corner.
Well, now Tina provided us with that corner, and here are my offerings…
This Cohen quote is one of my own favourites, and I loved it for this crack in a building in Lodz, Poland. It was the last warm rays of sun (October), and this beautiful Peacock butterfly used the light and the protecting walls of the crack to make it through another day.
A street market in Madrid, and one of my students spotted these – I had never seen anything like it before. Angelica just had to touch it to understand the structure.
I don’t remember how this happened, but I remember the feeling I had on turning around in the queue – I thought it was a real baby sticking out of that bag.
My opener/header is one of my absolute favourites – and I believe I found him too in Spain.
Last week we visited many special places when Karina was our Guest Host, and what wondrous places there were! This week is all about odds and ends and I’m looking forward to all the possibly also whimsical things you’ll show us. Make sure you link to Tina’s incredible post and also tag Lens-Artists so we can easily find you.

Hi – that baby does look real
and I could to see the opener because I am in the reader?
also, the form-fitting underwear were new to me – and well – I guess because the ”full booty” is all the rage right now – these are like the push up bras??
Haha, yes, ”full booty”? I’ll remember that… The opener often shows as the first photo in the reader?
Okay, I am not sure it shows as the first image in the reader – but I will check again
and sadly, I have had a couple of students that were saving for the ”butt lift” surgery – breaks my heart sometimes that folks go into surgery for things like this – and the underwear seem like a better option
I agree – it has gone too far and too easy doing surgery.
And of course there are some who really need some help – but the younger and younger it seems to happen
Happy to share, there have been many fun stories!
These photographs made me chuckle especially the underwear pic.
This was a fun challenge this week, Anne Christine. Hope you have a wonderful weekdend.

Excellent topic week, love it!
Your Leonard Cohen quote definitely resonates – it is one of my own favorite lines, too. I love the mystery of the door opener in the wall, without a door, and the mysterious cigarette. I think that would make an excellent ”story starter!” Your Street Market in Madrid is fun and quirky. I happen to like fun and quirky!
Apologies for being tardy in commenting on your great post. Usually I’m more timely!
Here’s my Lens Artists Odds and Ends topic offering.
You are always timely, Babsje! Thank you.

What a wonderful post, AC. Your shot of the butterfly is incredible. It’s an image that is lingering in my mind. The underwear…a good laugh! I did a double-take with the baby. And the door opener?? What can I say? Like you, I enjoy a good mystery, but I’m stumped. Maybe it’s a secret door to Harry Potter’s world??
Regarding the first picture, did you consider asking someone in charge of that building for an explanation of the seemingly purposeless door opener?
Wonderful selections, AC. The ”butt” panties, I don’t blame she want to feel it. 🙂 . The baby is so real! The butterfly, I love it.
Thank you, Amy – ♥
I thought it was a real baby too!
I was really a bit chocked…
I’m not surprised.
Haha! All sweet and interesting but that panty-grabbing photo made me laugh out loud. 😀
Fun, isn’t it? I thought maybe they could be used by men too – their behinds tend to flatten when they age…
Great oddities Ann-Christine!
Glad you liked them, Aletta!
Love the Dickens quote . . . he has described how my mind works extremely well . . . and, I obviously have to slow the speed of my looking as I thought I saw some ordinary nice and probably economical bikinis for sale . . . extra padding > oh my ‘Maker’ made sure that came naturally 🙂 !!!
Hahahahaha! I was wondering if it could be used by men instead…they tend to get flat when they age…
Fun and funny post A-C!
Terrific finds Ann-Christine. In your header it looks like the horse is obeying the sign! The butterfly was an excellent find, and I really had a laugh over the ”butt” panties. I mean seriously, who the heck needs a BIGGER butt?! Wonderful post.
Thanks Tina, I had fun searching…and finding! A terrific challenge theme!
You really found some odd photos to show, Ann-Christine! The last one would have freaked me out if I thought was real.
Very interesting photos! I love the butterfly in the concrete – or at least that’s what it looks like to me.
It is – thank you. I just had to photograph it…Thank you!
A great gallery Ann-Christine. Of course I love the Peacock Butterfly but the baby in a bag made me look twice too, The bum enhancing knickers made me laugh with her hand on them 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Brian – I had fun hunting.
Interesting odds, especially the baby one.
Thank you, Hammad. I was so glad it wasn’t a real baby…
Goteborg!! Butt… butt… And Baby-in-a-Bag. Superb!
Haha – thanks!
Yes, this is an interesting selection. I’m going with the butterfly-in-the-cement too, but they’re all worth more than a second glance.
Thank you, Margaret!
Not only fun but thought-provoking too. A very enjoyable selection.
Thank you – glad you enjoyed it!
Great set of odds and ends Ann-Christine. And some mystery too!
Thank you, Anne!
These are all fun, Leya. I like your favorite and the butterfly especially, but the mystery of the missing door is cool and of course the baby’s cute. I’ve heard the Cohen quote before and it’s a good one, but I really liked the Dickens quote, maybe because my minds seems to work that way (and quite often my photography as well.)
Then a quote is good – if you can see a bit of yourself in it!
