Photohunt: Thirteen

When I saw that the photohunt theme was thirteen, I'll admit that I didn't have a clue what to do. At a loss, I decided to demonstrate that I could count to thirteen so for my first shot, I took a photo of thirteen shoes in my bathroom.
Not wanting to leave you in the bathroom, I decided to put together one more photogroup for thirteen. Below are thirteen animals. After I put together the collage below, I realized that I had actually demonstrated that I couldn't count to thirteen because I spotted an extra bird in a branch above another. No problem. I put the red box over the extra bird and included the thirteen caption. The dogs in the photograph often bark out a request for me to take their picture when I walk by. When I stop and whip out my camera, they invariably stop barking and pose for me.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

PH participants post here on Saturday -

or show up on technorati anytime here -

Heart of Rachel said...

Nice thinking on those shoes. Looks like a nice bunch of dogs.

ancient one said...

This one was hard... but you did a good job with it!! 13 different shoes and animals, that's good thinking!!

BlurMommy said...

Great choices for this week!

Katney said...

Thirteen was hard. There wer twelve yellow tulips in the bed by my door. Fifteen tomato sprouts jsut starting to get bigger for the garden. Ten of this, eleven of that. I succeeded, though, in a slightly different way, and you can see it at midnight Pacific Time, because it is, after all, a Saturday Photo Hunt. Of course, I love going out to see the early birds.

Expat Traveler said...

I love the 13 animals collage, great job!

Rach said...

I wasn't sure what to do for this theme either and you tend to look a bit mad walking around counting to 13!

Napaboaniya said...

I hope you've got the 13 other sides of those shoes as well :) Cute shot of the shoes!! Have a blessed weekend Carver. Hope you're enjoying more and more of your daily walks too!

Panaderos said...

I love your shoe collection! Nice styles and colors. :)

Blessed Chic said...

I love the variety of your shoes, Carver. The animal photos are lovely :)

Have a great weekend!

Corey~living and loving said...

great creativity! :)
happy weekend!

mama meji said...

13 shoes! You have lots!

Huey said...

Haha the dogs are so cute that they do pose for you! My dog doesn't like me snapping photos of hers.

Natalie said...

I had a tough time with this one.

Barbara H. said...

This was kind of a hard one, especially since it should be easy because it is so wide open. There ought to be a lot of different types of pictures today! I like yours. When our family comes in and kicks off their shoes near the door, I could almost get 13 right then -- didn't think of it!

danielctw said...

Hahaha don't we all have a hard time on this :D

You've got some good shoes there :D

YTSL said...

Must say that from what I've seen thus far -- and yes, I've made an earlier than usual start -- this week's Photo Hunt may well be one of the most creative thus far! :)

Angela said...

I was tempted to go the 13 collage as well, but finally found a set of thirteen things

-TNChick- said...

Did their mates get flushed? hehe

My PhotoHunt will auto-publish in about an hour and a half. =) Just visiting a few while I have the extra moment =)

Larry said...

Had a laugh at your collage -- but am wondering are there 13 shoes to match those ones?????

Xixi said...

Great photos for this week's theme, Carver! Happy Hunting! :)

the donG said...

i can't figure out which one is your favorite. can the way you place it determine which one is your favorite?

Eds said...

Nice work! You really tried ur best to have ur thirteen! Happy Weekend! :)

Criz Lai said...

I would say, this week's theme is rather hard for many too. Anyway, you still did great Carver :)

Nice collage of all those animals!

Great entries on the theme!

starnitesky said...

Cute dogs! 13 had me stumped so I took photos of 13 things!

Enjoy your weekend

lissa said...

I think you done pretty well with this one, 13 shoes, 13 animals, sounds right to me

I like mismatch shoes, I'm wondering why not 13 pairs of shoes instead of 13 shoes, oh well

Carver said...

Thanks again to everyone for visiting my photohunt post and commenting. I'm enjoying this one. Lots of fun posts out there for 13.

Karen said...

LOL! I love the image of the dogs stopping, mid-bark, to pose for the camera. Too funny.

And the shoes ... I can, um, relate to that one. *grin*

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Very clever! I love the animal collage.

Have a great weekend!!

Patricia said...

Clever. I got lucky with the theme this week. If you have time, come take a look. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, Carver.

The Author said...

Same problem here too! But you came out with a good idea.

Great photos!

Happy Hunting!

TiOheM said...

I had a hard time too. Just posted mine. Your entries are nice.

kacey said...

good catch on covering the pesky extra bird!

Carver said...

Thanks to all for visiting. This has been another fun photohunt.

monaco said...

I was stumped with this week's theme as well, so I had to be resourceful. come visit my hunt too.

Andrée said...

They actually stop and pose? that's so cool! I'd be scared of them and go the other way and never see those poses! Great post!

eastcoastlife said...

It was not easy coming up with the photo for this week's theme. :)

Are these shoes single or do they have a matching pair? hehe....

Great shots with a cool number...Being a former math teacher :) I kinda always just liked 13. It is prime, the sum of 2 consecutive integers and is of dubious charater.
Real reason though is the concept of the baker's dozen. As a kid, I loved it when my grandma would take me to the bakery and we would buy a dozen of something and get 13. Confounding to burgeoning math skills as it was, I loved having an extra one for free. Now I know the origin is the concept was that bakers would always added an extra in case one was burned or torn in order to have a perfect dozen.
Great pics for a great number. Just remember!
Don't walk under ladders, step on cracks, let a black kitty cross your path, pick up a penny with the 'tails' side up....
Love, K.

Torture numbers and they'll confess to anything.

Carver said...

Thanks for your comments on my PH post. For the record, each of the shoes does have a mate so isn't lonely. I won't tell you how many different groups of 13 shoes I could have shown. I love the quote from above Mrs. Jone's desk. I wish I'd thought of a baker's dozen. That would have been a great excuse to buy some of the baked goods at the Farmer's Market. Cheers everyone, Carver
