no words, just numbers. found on my walks.
see more numbers from other SundayStills contributors here
(If anyone else wants to join in, next week's challenge is sunrise/sunset. I think I can manage that!)
I'll have to remember to take pics to contribute. Lovely!
It's amazing what you find once you start looking for it. Even birds with unsightful numbers on them, poor things. Marked by man. The things we do!
The poor swans are numbered..I guess they must be in some sort of a conservation program:)
Very nicely done, and very interesting choice of numbers. :)
Great shots! Are they Swans or Snow Geese? :-)
Mr Nighttime: I'm sure you can find lots to shoot!Nora: normally, those unsightly numbers really annoy me when I am trying to get a lovely shot of the swans... now they were useful to me!FFF: yes, all part of the rehabilitation, they are kept track of and cared for with love!Dibear: I tried for a variety; all found over two days of walking the streets.Ed: these are swans making themselves look like dirty snow lumps!
These are really nice. Great job!
crazysheeplady: thanks (btw, I gave you a mention, if you wander over to my roast - see previous post for link)
Neat shots...that Geese shot..too amazing.I was surprised by the number my eye actually saw..it was an excellent challenge!KK
KK: thanks, some challenges are so much fun (and easier) to do - this was one of them!
love the street numbers - great seeing
Char: thanks, I've always thought having an address like 8 1/2 would be neat.
Clevvvvver! Such a clevuh gurl!Love these!Is the alphabet coming next.An interesting thing that one of my classes did was to take the digital camera and go outside and find things in nature that had the shape(s) of the letters of the alphabet. Talk about having to look for the things one doesn't usually look for....but what a great experience. Love these numbers.....Good on ya!Love,Jackie
Like that last shot, very well done.
Very interesting on numbered swans. I wonder why we have half numbers suffix on addresses.A great set of numbers!
That's a great idea. I'll have to give it a go!
Teacher's Pet: thanks. there was another blogger (and sadly, I forget who exactly) who did a weekly series of finding things that looked like letters of the alphabet.morephotosplease: yeah, that last one was great, with all of them asleep (and no ducks getting in the way like they usually do!)Ebie: in this case, it is for the apartment above the store. Usually we see a letter designation for the apartments (8A)Scott: have fun with it!
8 1/2 ? Why would somebody have that for an address instead of the more usual 8A? What if there were two apartments? Would the second one be 8 3/4 perhaps? Okay - no more wine for me today ...
I'll have some wine since now you me thinking about that, Pinklea.
Nice collection of numbers, they really are all around us. I'm surprised how big the tags are on the swans; I hope they're light. :)
AmyR: they don't seem to be bothered by them. and the tags do often get partially hidden by the feathers, so I guess they need to be big enough to see from a distance.
was the 8 1/2 someones house number(?)that's nifty :)
Those numbered birds are cracking me up.
Chloe: yes, it was for the upstairs of a storeGeewits: I've gotten used to them, so much so that I wonder about the ones without a yellow tag.
Very nice, I find, like others here, the numbered Swans amusing. Love your other photos too, well done.http://spacialpeepol.blogspot.com/2010/03/face-of-week-2.html
This is quite a collection of numbers. I LOVE the 81/2!
Sistertex: thanksStine: wouldn't that be fun to say... if just for the look of confusion on people's faces. I wonder how it works when filling in those boxes for addresses?
I was wondering what those were and clicked to see that they're swans! Great shot! :)
This is such a cool post! Wonderful idea!
Pauline: the do look odd in that pose, don't they?JM thank you so much!
I love having a thematic intention when going out. It's quite amazing the synchronicity that comes about. Now you've made me want to watch for numbers.
Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
