Weekly Photo Challenge : Unexpected

photo 2


Most of the good things you capture through a camera lens are unforeseen ,unexpected .

You want to own a thing , a moment , a memory , an expression just because it was something you did not expect and maybe it’s one of those temporary ones !

Last Sunday , during a hike ,I could not miss clicking the unexpected landscape of that strange , calm evening by the ocean there. I’ll save these pictures and cherish them until another moment supersedes that feeling !


But , beside photography , if I talk about life , “unexpected” is a word that is never superficial , it’s pure joy when I receive an unexpected gift , meet an old friend at some other side of the world ,find a good shade of lip-gloss among the regular ones at the drugstore .

I love “unexpected” , good things . One thing tops that list –  handwritten notes , bookmarked pages , underlined paragraphs that previous readers left on an old book from the library . Those are like some extinct wisdom , as if I am inheriting something that has been crafted only for me , by someone unknown! It may sound strange, but that’s one pure , unexpected happiness for me .


** What do you love most among all unexpected things the world offers ?

  1. Life is good – it said to me too. That calm evening really helped me to freshen up for Monday . Sometimes , a calm landscape helps us to understand the detail we miss during our daily life..:) Thank you for stopping by , likeitiz. See you again soon 🙂

  2. Ahh, what a serene backdrop to a coming together of a group to commune, prepare food, and enjoy one another’s company. It says to me, “”Life is good.”

  3. I read your comment more than 5 times by now. 🙂 Thank you , C.K. 🙂

    And I too wonder why they underlined that line or passage ..:) It’s wonderful right? 🙂 Yes , I love all the good unexpected things too 🙂

  4. I’ll happily join your challenge on 2nd December. Nature is one wonderful prompt. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment. 🙂

  5. A peaceful and serene image by the shoreline–well done. A quick note to let you know that there will not be a challenge next Monday due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. Hope to see you on 02 December for the next challenge: Nature.

  6. What do I love most among all the unexpected things this world can offer? Your pictures 🙂 I also love finding underlined passages in library books, sometimes you have to wonder what that line or section that was marked meant to them; other times you just know.

    There’s so many possibilities of unexpected things, I love all the good ones!

So what do you think?
