If you remember Sesame Street's old song, "one of these things is not like the other, one of these things does not belong," you get the drift of ferny's inspired challenge: Doesn't belong. It can be a photo of some abnormality in nature, an obvious fish out of water or it can be as subtle as a billboard by the highway that makes you go, "hunh?!" and look at your passengers in puzzlement. This will be a super challenge for some comic relief, we anticipate!



Again, please remember the photo size requirements, remember to include the challenge title in your post title ("Hunh?"), and, as always, you will learn the most by taking the photo during the two-week challenge period.

digcamfan, actually, it really is spelled "hunh?" LOL. Notice the little nasal twinge that the "n" provides, not a straight "huh" sound. :-)I have some good ones I want to post if I can find the time. I think if we get some entries this one will be quite comedic!

You must be using an outdated dictionary. You'll probably also find "lounge chair" or "chase lounge"in the dictionary but that's not right, either. It's "longue chair," or "chaise longue"taken from the french words for long chair.:-)

Anyhoo, I wanted to mention that the thing that makes you go "whoa" (how's that!) should be a straight photo - you can edit for cropping and lighting (if that's not the point of the photo) but it should be a NATURAL unnatural, not a digital artwork. So the humor (like in cal's post) or the obvious man out (like in ferny's) should be natural, not a doctored photo to make it look that way. We know you're all creative; we want to see nature's creativity and your astuteness in capturing it on this one. :-)

Actually, you're both wrong. I have in front of me the Webster's American Dictionary, College Edition. Hunh and woah are not listed. Whoa and huh are. It doesn't matter which term you use as long as you say "Duh! Whatzat?"
