Photohunters: Undesirable


The photohunters theme this week is undesirable. I find going to the dentist's office to be undesirable. I took the shot below outside of the dentist's office as I delayed going inside.

Photobucket

Rush hour traffic is undesirable. I took the shot below while stuck at a stop light in rush hour traffic.

The shot below is one I took out my car window while stuck at a stop light. Sometimes an undesirable long stop light can turn into a photo op.

Please visit the home of photohunters, starting Saturday, for other participants.

Agree completely about the dentist and rush hour too. Though you got some great shots while stuck in traffic (love that big church!).

Have a great weekend!

p/s: there should be a stray of Geminids Meteor Showers two nights from now. It's to be one of the best showers of the year!‏ I hope you can see them there too. It's going to last for a few days I think. :)

I dread going to the dentist. The polishing and scaling is so uncomfortable. :(

Mirage said...

So nice that you make something undesirable to desirable and beautiful!

Randi said...

You are so funny and you really made me laugh, Carver! I have never taken a shot out my car window. You got some perfect photos - love the moon and the blue sky!
I wish you a great weekend!

I feel the same about the dentist too. Glad that a great op came out of the traffic jam though. Happy weekend

Pat said...

Bengbeng said...

i love the last pic of the moon. i hate going to the dentist not bcoz of pain factor but bcoz it is super expensive :( in our country

Smalltown RN said...

Yes I would have to agree,going to the dentist is very undesirable to me.....and sitting in traffic....

YTSL said...

Hi Carver --

Agree that sometimes traffic jams can provide good photo opportunities -- especially if one is not the driver, as often is the case with me (who way prefers being driven in a bus to driving a car)! :)

luna miranda said...

oh, same here...the prospect of going to the dentist gives me panic attacks! LOL and yes, rush hour is so stressful.

Anneke (Mudhooks) said...

That last photo is definitely being handed lemons and making lemonade...

Mine is up but the photos may be rather disturbing. The first I used in an earlier PhotoHunter but the second is one I haven’t dared put up publicly before. Just warning you…

gengen said...

Yes we are like that sometimes rushing but the traffic is really undesirable. Happy hunting...

candi said...

Nice takes on the theme!
I don't like going to the dentist either.

Happy weekend!

Surfie said...

I was stuck at a light one day and tried to turn it into a photo op, but OF COURSE, as soon as I got my camera up and ready the light changed. Argh! Go figure. :) Great choices, although I actually LIKE going to the dentist - assuming I'm not told that I have cavities or need a root canal!

Mrs Mecomber said...

I also find long traffic stops perfect for photography! But my photos are.. undesirable. I really need to work more on my technique.

Loved your post!

My Photo Hunt: Undesirable is up. I hope you have time to visit. Have a good weekend.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Great photohunt!

Colin Campbell said...

All that negative energy going to the dentist. No wonder they have a high suicide rate.

Lisa said...

Well done! (especially since the pics are great.)

A. @ A Changing Life said...

You've managed to make undesirable moments into some great shots! That was what I found so hard.

Bull Rhino said...

Why'd you have to make my teeth hurt like that LOL. Good shots. Comes from always having your camera handy.

Manang Kim said...

I agree dentist appointment is very undesirable...traffic the more lol!! But you've got a very good shot of the moon. Thanks for sharing!

Amen to the rush hour traffic. What little patience I have gets lost with rush hour traffic.

Good post!

Carolyn Ford said...

I agree with that dentist part! But, wow! what a lovely reflection in the office glass! What a moon shot you got while stuck in that undesirable traffic jam...fun post!

Ayie said...

rare that i get stuck in traffic so I still keep snapping while on the go =)

dsmcaron said...

I like the clever use of your time. ;)

Also, I tried to capture that beautiful moon and wasn't successful. You did a great job.
