Close Encounters Of The Unusual Kind #SundayStills

Have you ever met somebody who wasn’t there?

At the time, maybe you thought you were talking to yourself, but how certain were you that it wasn’t something else you couldn’t see that you were talking to?

Not everything that looks unusual is as unusual as it seems.

Is everything you see through the viewfinder of your camera really there?

How unusual is it to find yourself all alone in a town with no sign of anybody else, yet when you raise your camera or phone to take a picture, you see two other people who are were not there before you looked through your viewfinder?

Do you have to be a time traveller to be able to see other time travellers?

I could only communicate with the two figures in the above photo when I looked at them through the viewfinder of my iPhone. Strangely, they told me they could only see me when I was looking at them through my phone. Is that unusual? On a time travelling mission, they could not stop for long but told me they’d see me again in 2028.

Do we see the same scene when looking through a window as you do when looking out of an open window?

How unusual is it to look through a window that offers a different view to the one you see when you open the window and look out?

#SundayStills #photography
Open the window you’re looking through, and you may get a different view.

It’s not unusual for this to happen to me, but you have to know where to find these windows. They can be found everywhere, but beware the ones that open up onto a world you can never escape from.

Would you like to go to an unusual place?

Just like unusual windows, beware unusual doors and gates. If you ever come across the portal in the picture below, walk on by.

Never give these portals even a fleeting glance. One look, and you’ll find yourself in Nowhere.

Don’t even give it a glance. One quick look is all it takes to unlock this gate that leads to Nowhere. Where’s Nowhere? That’s an unusual question that can only be answered by unusual people. Are you one of those people?

I’m delighted to be hosting Sunday Stills again while Terri Webster Schrandt takes a break. Click here to check out the themes for June 2019.

Here’s what you need to do to join this week’s Sunday Stills challenge.

Write a brand new post and share your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about unusual things. What do you see or feel when in an unusual situation? Describe what’s there and tell us your thoughts when you discovered or experienced something that was unusual.

Don’t forget to create a pingback to this post so that other participants can read your post.

Special note: Due to ongoing problems with pingbacks not all working on WordPress, I’d recommend that you also leave a link to your ‘Sunday Stills’ post in the comments section of this post.

Remember – Entries for this challenge can be posted all week (not just on a Sunday).

I look forward to looking and hearing about the unusual things in your life. Have fun!

  1. Quite an imagination you have, Hugh. Funny how people can walk into your shot when there weren’t there a moment before, or they were there and you were so distracted that you didn’t see them (the latter which is something that doesn’t sit well with me as I don’t really like not noticing things lol). If I ever come across a random gate or door, I will be sure to stop and have a look around, maybe even peeping through the keyhole if there is one 😀 You might call it walking on the edge but I really do want to discover this Nowhere and see how magical it is. Hope you are well and enjoying your break, Hugh 🙂

    1. I’m having a great time while on my blogging break, Mabel. I never realised just how much time it would free up. I’m using every single moment of it wisely. It’s undoubtedly focusing my mind and thoughts on stuff I could not see when blogging. I’ve spotted new paths, some of which I have already experienced and enjoyed. I ‘ve also found myself making more use of the great outdoors. Lots to think about over the coming weeks.

      1. Having been away from the blogging world for almost two months, I also realised how much time not blogging frees up. I’m loving it though. Sounds like you are making the most of it and keep enjoying the outdoors. Won’t be surprised if you extend your break 😁
