I wanted to participate in the Lens-Artist Photo Challenge 40: Something Different, but I could not think what to post. See, I am a creature of habit. No matter what the season, I tend to take photographs of nature. If it is Spring, I must be taking pictures of flowers. Nothing different there, other than changes in the colors on the hills or a flower blossoming from bud to full bloom.
Yesterday, I was out about town running some errands. And stopping to take some photos of pretty flowers found along the way. Again, nothing different there. Except that these are different flowers than I have posted recently.
As I was stopped for one errand, however, I thought, “Hey, I could photograph this—that would be different. I do not usually photograph this. In fact, I doubt if very many people do at all.”
My something different, therefore, are these photos. I have cropped them a bit, but I have done nothing else to the image. Can you guess what these photos represent?
Maybe this last photo will help you guess.
Yup, I was driving through a car wash.
