Photo Challenge: UNLIKELY

You’re unlikely to discover something new without a lot of practice on old stuff, but further, you should get a heck of a lot of fun out of working out funny relations and interesting things. Richard P. Feynman

For this week’s photo challenge on the UNLIKELY, I’ve chosen to share what I captured in someone’s backyard on the aqueduct. It was an unlikely place for such a huge installation but it was beautiful to see and especially as it was windy day. I shot a video of the bicycle wheels spinning in response to the wind. Quite poetic. Watch the video below too. I’ve added my words to the bottom of the video as the wind made it hard to hear. What unlikely things have you come across lately?

Photo Challenge: UNLIKELY – WindTurbine


Windmills/Turbines: These beautiful installations respond to the wind.
They spin their wheels in sequence.
Art meets nature and vise versa.


“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can.” J.J. Tolkien

Do you ever see windmills in your neighborhood? When I lived in California, there were parts of the state that had a ton of them but it wasn’t the norm… It fits the unlikely theme
Windmill In The Wind by Paula Swanson
As the windmill turns with the wind,
the storm brings much needed rain.
With each drop, renewal begins,
relieving the parched land its pain.

Sweet water of the Earth, life’s essence,
within the wind, the windmill drinks.
Storing the source within a pond,
bringing the desert from the brink.

Noses catching the scent of rain,
wild Burro’s enjoy their play.
Turns the windmill as the wind blows,
clouds block the sun, blessing shade.

The land breathes a sigh of relief.
Life is given back once again.
The clouds empty themselves of rain,
as the windmill turns with the wind. via
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post:  – UNLIKELY  – This week’s challenge is to share a photo of something unlikely. My point here is threefold: Never say never. If you ever have the opportunity to hang out in a pickup with an apex predator*, go for it. Share the Unlikely; an object or person in an unlikely place, an unpredictable experience, a serendipitous accident: we want the expected. We look forward to seeing your interpretations!


Positive Motivation Tip: Stay open to the world we inhabit… much can be seen.

    Seeing windmills in your neighborhood is indeed very unlikely! Here in the Philippines, windmills are usually located in very isolated places.
