Life isn’t always a serious affair. It’s littered with all sorts of emotion, sadness, anger, and one of my favorites… humor.
Let me go back in time a little bit to share a quick story with you. Waaay way back in September of 2006 I started my first blog. It was called Life at 150 North and was a big mix of random thoughts, observations, photos, and whatever else I felt like talking about.
One of the things I was drawn to very early on was finding moments while out and about that struck me as somewhat humorous. I like to laugh, we all do, and I especially love seeing funny situations when I least expect them.
Things like items arranged or paired oddly on a shelf in Target, such as when I found a box of Cheez-It crackers on the bookshelf paired with the “What to expect when you’re expecting” book. Or a note in a local restaurant signed by “Mr. Taco”.
These little moments remind me that sometimes we just need to shake out of serious mode and have a little fun. Plus, the more you keep your eyes open for things like this, the more you see them.
It’s practice in accute observation.
So as I begin the process of picking myself up off the mat after a very rough couple of weeks personally, I thought I would share some of my favorite photographic moments that brought me some fun, quirky, enjoyment.
Some of these photos are obvious with their quirky side, others require a little bit of thought or imagination. But they all have a story to tell, if we only take time to observe.
