You know those scenes that make you stop to have another look …. those sights that make you do a double take … those views that make you look again, just to check that you saw what you saw … those outlooks that leave you somewhat…short of words … well, that’s what my Mute Monday is about.
We were returning home from a walk to the park on Saturday, but I was left behind because I wasn’t keeping up with the pace. This was, not surprisingly, thanks to my busy fingers clicking away at so many beautiful sights … seriously, some of them had to be captured for later re-viewing.
I tried to catch up but it was obvious that wasn’t possible. So, I decided to take a bit more time to enjoy my surrounding; I walked at a leisurely pace and took a few more pictures of some of the things that caught my eye.
Then, there was this ..
‘What’s this?’, I thought, as I rounded the corner and walked by this car. I walked backwards and snapped; then I zoomed and snapped again. I’d never seen anything like this before. I wonder why the side mirror was turned upwards, instead of inwards … or the normal outwards.
It took me a few seconds to work out what it was.
There wasn’t much time for any contemplation though, I had to move on and get home as soon as possible.
My reaction is still very much, ‘how did that happen’ even though I know how. I suppose it’s quite counterintuitive, not what I expected to see on my walk … definitely not what I would have imagined seeing in a side mirror.
So, what do you think … any words? Can you work out what it is? What’s the oddest thing you’ve seen in a side mirror?
