Odd Shots On Monday



While walking my dog I frequently pass this way. I think I must often walk with my eyes closed, because I only noticed this last week.


There's a garden and a lawn just visible at the top of the bank, which rises beside the track I walk. The lawn is at my eye-level. Some hedge-trees grow along the edge, with roots hanging down. I think they may be holding the bank together!

For more Odd Shots, and for the rules, visit Katney.

Have a good Monday.

Wonderful odd shot! The short story was good too. Isn't it funny how we can go about our lives and one day notice something that that has always been there but we've never seen before?

That is odd. Great picture. I think we miss a lot of things every day as we are in such deep thought.

I love things that just suddenly pop out at me like this... and I'm sure you're right that the roots hold the whole thing together!

Thanks for stopping by!:)

Before the age of digital cameras, no one would think of taking photos of that. I really enjoyed it and it depicts the strength in those roots.

That is odd, nice picture!

Reminds me off a terrarium, where the glass allows one to see the root system below the surface. Nice shot!

What a strange way for the trees or shrubs to grow

Amazing shot. Well spotted.

Quick, get the Araldite.

Yes, we need to be observant to catch these things. Yesterday we went for a drive and a walk. After we had passed about the fourth of a certain interesting sign I said, if we see another like it I want to stop and take a picture. That was the last of them.

Thanks for all your kind comments.
I try to see everything when I'm walking, but it always amazes me just how much I still miss!

Certainly looks like the roots are holding the walls together!

It does look like that root has it's toes wrapped around that rock. Neat!
