Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge (COB) is all about those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

There is never a theme to this challenge, so what is an odd ball is all up for you to discover and photograph.

I hope that you have a lot of fun with this challenge!  To read more about Odd Ball photos click here.

  1. Good morning, Cee. These are very odd 😉 I learned that everything could be beautiful! On second thought… it has a lot to do with the photographer too. Ha.
    Have a great day.


  2. This just proves that you will take photos of anything, right? But I do love the irrigation pipes and sprinklers. And you are so tight on that screw that I thought it was a doorknob! Fun odd ball photos!

  3. Hey Cee,
    Beautiful shots. What lens did you use for that header shot of that flower, and how far away were you. I trying to learn more about it so I am treating myself for Christmas…Thanks,



    1. Hi Pat, Thanks for commenting. I’m planning on doing a new Compose Yourself Lesson in the beginning one the year regarding macro photography. I do have this old tip and trick https://ceenphotography.com/2015/08/28/cees-tips-and-tricks-my-thoughts-on-lenses-for-macros/ that might be helpful.
      Here are a few tips.
      You can actually use most any lens for macros. I use all of mine. Get as close to the object as your camera lens allows. Always take your photos at the highest resolution. That way you can crop a photo and still have wonderful clarity.

      1. Thanks, this post really helped. I think I’m going to go for the 80-400mm. I like the distance, it should allow some decent shots of my garden visitors before they fly away:)


  4. Oh, you are so sweet to include me among the featured bloggers this week! 🙂

    I like the photo of those irrigation pipes. It makes me want to know how they stacked them that way! So orderly.


  5. Week 50 already. My, but this year went by fast. I’m looking forward to new adventures next year. Hopefully I’ll be posting about some of it.
    May you too have memorable adventures.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours and Happy New Year.
