Friday Photo Fun - Something Selfish

Something Selfish
by Rachel Hoyt



A seemingly innocent act,
to which you shouldn't overreact,
but which could cause one innocent life
quite a bit of undeserved strife.

Friday Photo Fun is when I share a randomly captured moment,
or perhaps a photo experiment with more purposeful intent,
then pair it with a rhyming riddle to exercise your mind
and teach you more weird facts to which you once were blind.



After the answer is guessed, I will post a second, non-abstract photo...
and just in case you wanted to know,
the first is not a photoshopped version of the second -
they're shot using different techniques that to me beckon.

Wanda stuck with it and guessed that carving in a tree
is fun for humans but can harm bark quite badly.

  3. Happy Friday, Rachel!
    Well...if your intention was to bamboozle us...it worked! LOL
    I can's see anything nor have I a clue so I'll just throw this out there - spit (sorry everyone).

    1. That is a pretty good guess Andy! It is a childish act, but doesn't get anything wet in the process. :-)

    2. Hello again.
      WoW! I never would have guessed carving on a tree! Hmm...I've already carved my letters on my wife's (smile). Thanks for sharing.

    1. Well, sometimes people who feel very intimate do this thing together as a way to proclaim their love to the world... :)

    1. Hehe. I don't think i could capture a fart on camera... Nor do i want to try!

      Anyhow, it is not a love letter, but it is sort of like a signature... :-)

    1. Hmmm... I'm not even sure how one would photograph that. This activity requires a tool and harms nature.

  10. Isn't the second photo quite like an answer to the riddle? (I guess it must be an answer of an earlier riddle then. oops ?)

    1. Yes, the second photo is the answer. Once it has been guessed, I revise the post to include it.

      Thanks for visiting!

  12. there is a side of me that romanticizes initials carved in the tree...i do hope that it does not kill the tree though....

    1. Apparently it does harm the tree. I wish that wasn't the truth because it's also romantic to me.

  13. Saw this quite late, but I'd never had guessed, Rachel.
