Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a carrot like this one. When I looked at it, I saw a woman dressed  in a bathing suit lying on her side on the beach. She wore dark sun glasses and a broad floppy hat and had her legs crossed seductively as if waiting for that someone. Then I knew: it looked like one of those 1950s pinup girls, you know the one that GIs used to hang on their walls. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to take a photo. I wanted to have a clear and lasting memory of it and used all the others in the bag I had bought before carefully and gently scraping the skin off to use it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

This is my submission to this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.


  1. I used to grow carrots like that when I was a kid. It was caused by nematodes in the soil.

    A pin-up girl sounds much more glamorous than a nematode.

  2. Nematodes? Thanks, Narelle. I’ll look it up.
    I prefer pin-up girl too, hahaha!

    That’s one sexy carrot! 🙂 When I was a kid, we grew unusually shaped watermelons and tomatoes. Some of them were kind of scary. Don’t know what caused that.

  4. And I thought this was a fluke. Another blogger had a name for it, I’ve forgotten it now.

  5. Haven’t seen such a strange and unusual carrot before!SO weird!!

  6. Haven’t seen such a strange carrot before!SO weird!!I’m wondering how it could taste! 🙂

  7. Actually, there was no difference in taste. Apart from the unusual shape, everything about it was the same as a regular carrot.

  8. That it is, Goody!
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. I have to admit that it is both unusual and kinda creepy! 😆 LOL! 🙂

  11. I have seen such a carrot before and when I looked at it looked like some kind of twisted fingers! Looked a little disgusting!
