Odd Shots Monday--I always ask for a Window Seat

Odd Shots is hosted here. To participate, post your Odd Shot and leave a comment on this post to let us know you have played. I update the Odd Shots blogroll fairly regularly, adding new players weekly and less often removing those who don't continue. There is a link to the "rules" in the sidebar.

Sometimes I just get the wrong window.


That is Mt. Adams which we were passing on our return from Califonia. You may have seen other views of it in earlier posts here and here among others.

When we passed Mt. Rainier, I only got a view of the head.

I have seen a head like that before...usually in front of me at the theatre! That's the only trouble with being a shorty! LOL! Great idea for Monday...mine too is up!

Rosebud said...

It almost looks like a cloud from up there. Come visit and see my odd shot.

Gattina said...

Very nice shot ! Apparently I am the first ! Today I show the love message graffitis at Romeo and Julia's house in Verona (Italy)

ArneA said...

Odd or artistic. Interesting though.
Have a nice week

Blue said...

Like you I always ask for a window seat - & hate it when asked to pull down the blind.
A fun odd shot!
Mines up.

Have a good week

Nice photo peek of Adams there, Katney! When it comes to aerial photography, I seem to be sideways lately and either can't get a window seat or run out of battery power or memory, etc. or when I do get all my ducks lined up - the weather goes south.
I just posted too.

Interesting picture frame - shame about the view! Excellent Odd Shot.
Thanks for visiting mine so early/late.

It is like forever chosing the wrong checkout at the supermarket.

Greyscale Territory said...

Magical shot! Love the silhouette outline of the scene outside!

Pretty impressive view there. Over the last few years my fear of flying seems to have increased, although maybe it's starting to alleviate to where I just don't like takeoff and landing. When I flew to Nassau earlier this year I was certainly glued to the view as we flew off the coast of Florida.

Anyhow, my nasty blue food post is up as well...

Anita said...

That's a beautiful shot! I've never flown, so I love seeing other people's shots from planes.

Mine's up at Prairie Visions - have a great week!!

Me & my puppies said...

It's like you can see the whole world from an airplane window. The view can be so amazing.

babooshka said...

I have done this myself. Annoying isn't it.

CrazyCath said...

That's the sort of view I get! We're twins!!!

Definitely an odd shot because the ones we would LIKE are the ones without heads in the way. Mine's up - later than usual for me, but up!

lingovise said...

Ain't it the truth! This always happens to me on a plane... or they'll just shut the screen all together. Love your caption :)

Hope you had a terrific time & got to climb St. Helens... it's a fun place to explore, we always enjoy it.

Daryl said...

And I assume you didnt mean the bathroom ...

Mine's up .. oink oink

B. Roan said...

Odd shot for sure! Nice sky though.

mannanan said...

Cracking Odd Shot....Like the silhouette.I always try and get a window seat but never take any photos as I always thought that using a camera when the plane was in the air was one of those no-no's like using computers.

Gypsy at heart said...

I always ask for a window as well!

Better than nothing - at least you "got" the mountain

JC said...

I like that very much. The silhouette, looking laid back, makes it all the more interesting.

mirage2g said...

I thought the head you were talking about is the head of the person in photo =)

To me looks like a cloud.

Its seldom that you get a clear view if you are not on the very side of the window.

Cool shot of Mt. Adams from a unique perspective. There's nothing like the view from above the clouds ~ heavenly!

My entry is up: ineXplicable "galaXy" Odd Shot (feeling silly today)

Dewdrop said...

I love the window seat on flights!!!! It's the only way to travel.

My odd shot is up on my storm chasing blog.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Great shot looking out, love those kind of shots as long as i am not on that plane.
Mine is up now

"Louis" discovered that someone has an unusual use for bicycle fenders in his "Odd Shots Monday" post.

"Louis" is buried past his cowbell in a work project for the next several weeks. He'll stop and look at your posts, but may not stay to sign your 'guest registry'.

ThanX for the Klingon info, Katney. We didn't know the language originated at WSU! Yet another reason to love quirky WA. ;-)

John said...

I have done this too.
Nice odd shot!


Here is mine - John`s Photoblog

Paulie said...

Mine's up -- I will be back later to comment on yours.

starnitesky said...

I agree with Denise the head is usually in front of me!

becky voyles said...

Cool view of your odd shot!

Paulie said...

I love it! That photo profile is wonderful!!!!!!!!! I mean, I am sorry you didn't get to see Mt. Adams for the umpteent time BUT gosh, look at the marvelous photo. Come see mine.

Müge Tekil said...

Hello Katney,

Sorry I'm late today... Your photo looks more romantic than odd to me :-)

Have a wonderful week!

My post is up too!

Steven and Aisha said...
