Photography Challenge: Totally Random Shots

Ya know how some days ya can't think of a single thing to photograph? Those are the perfect days for totally random shots. Take pictures of things that you would never normally photograph and just have fun with it. See if you can't come up with a few unique ideas. Now grab your camera and start shooting. No excuses!

READY, SET, GO!


P.S. The example shots below are extremely random. I wanted to play with my new Nifty Fifty lens (Canon 50mm f/1.8 II) and photographed anything that wasn't moving.
(Yup! I have been stuck in a black and white mode lately!)

Randomness

Well - I took 3. I Got in the truck and went to the tire store.
The tire isn't totally random - but I wanted it cuz I want it for my truck.
The least I could do is photoshop the rims on to it (cuz the $$ ain't
quite there yet - LOL).

I'm not a photographer by any right, so please don't judge, and, don't take offence at the armature nature of this photo

It's of an 1800's stove that i've left as decoration of sorts in my home workout room (odd I know)

(also, if you can bring yourself to ignoring that purple yoga ball, that would be wonderful!)

I'd say my fav is the blue barbwire. Is it really blue? or just an effect
