Surf boards, skateboards? Mind the white rectangle looks like a wall outlet, so maybe a painting or mural?

edit: I cheated but won't give it away.

Somewhat close. Hint: it was at a sports/outdoors shop.

What, you still want me to guess. How about canoe or kayak?

Jackpot! Kayak. This ultramodern outdoors store is set back from the road, nicely landscaped, and has a gaggle of kayaks stacked up vertically against a plain gray wall. Marketing genius as it really stands out as you go by and you know what the store is about.

I passed it everyday for a month. I originally photographed it in a more traditional straight on manner but that did not satisfy me. So I decided to make the photo more from the side and use a long telephoto (560mm) to compress the kayaks. Bingo, what I wanted.

Fine shot, but you may want clone out the white sticker on blue kayak, so it doesn't draw too much attention away from the vibrant colors and random design elements.

I can almost hear Bach’s organ music ;)
Yea Eric, I can hear it too. Your imaginary neighbors must hate you.

It looks to me like a perfectly normal blue piano keyboard with extra small sharp keys.   ;)

From Algonquin Park. May it always flourish.
The purply color is from red-orange-yellow foliage overlapping the blue of the sky, and not PP.

Thank you Eric. Head for Algonquin in autumn. Take a walk in woods with camera and zoom lens. Point it up, move camera in the direction of trunk, zoom and turn camera, all at same time, (don't forget to press shutter), you will arrive at location. Just like Dorothy in the land of Oz. But remember she took a long journey to get there, so be patient and pay no attention to the people who say "what are you photographing anyway?"

Ah, so that's the secret: "(don't forget to press shutter)"

As for the rest, I think I need the advice of a Chiropractor before trying it.

Of the three, I particularly like this third one, John. And it looks like the tornado that whisked Dorothy away is currently in progress.

Thank you Arlen and everyone else that took the trouble to comment on my images. I took these out of hibernation because of the February blahs. You know, can't get outside due to weather and other problems. I am glad I did, as I rediscovered how much I like them. My initial reaction was that people wouldn't like the purply skies created by overlapping yellow, red and orange leaves with the blue sky. NowI just accept that it is part of the creative process and the multi-exposure technique.
