A close up of a purple urchin on a sandy beach - Ouriço-do-mar roxo
An unusual beach find – one violet sea urchin

Everyone does seem to be having fun exploring oddness and discovering oddities this month. Some of your posts have had me in hysterics, others I remain puzzled over and all have shone with unusualness and/or beauty. Goodness knows how I am going to select which squares for the first gallery.

If you are not one of the 57 squarers who have joined us already this month, then don’t panic there is still time! The tag is SquareOdds and we are looking for square photographs whose subject matter is;

  • Differing from the usual or not happening often (ie oddballs, the exceptions and follies)
  • Separated from its set or mate (eg odds and ends or maybe odd socks or shoes)
  • Not divisible exactly by two (ie odd numbers) or the number is unknown (ie 90 odd birds rather than 99)

Still unsure about whether this challenge is for you, well here’s the challenge poster.

    1. No worries, you made it πŸ™‚

      I am way behind after an internet outage yesterday plus another long lunch out. I wonder if the two things are connected?!!

    1. From what I can work out this one is only found in the Mediterranean and east Atlantic, but there is another purple one that likes the Pacific but seems to be east Pacific

  1. I’ve gone for purple today too, Becky, although I’ve already seen you over on my site, so I know you know that already. My computer’s slowing things down right now, so I couldn’t rush however hard I tried! I’m just chillin’ like your urchin and my shield bug thingy. https://wp.me/pVkLb-5L5

    1. oh is your computer on go slow too – mine has just taken about 30 minutes to load the latest comments. Maybe our respective purple creatures have taken control!

      1. And it seems something’s happening to WordPress too, lately… unless my cache needs clearing. Whenever I visit a site, half of the gravatars are missing, and sometimes, the site loads just as text down the left of the screen… I have to reload to see things properly.
        It’s all very odd.

      2. ooh that is really strange – the WP happiness engineers do seem to spend a lot of time making adjustments behind the scenes and they never seem to work 😦 I don’t think they can be that happy really – probably more a feeling of odd!

      3. There have always been the odd issues with the changes that are made… the new editor for one, and they’re removing remote posting for some as well; I have to use that horrid editor on my other blog as I can’t access it remotely. My main blog is OK for now… but for how long?
        I will try clearing my cache for the display issues, but only when I have time… I can handle the quick refresh every now and then.
