This is the third time; I hope good luck lies in odd numbers…There is divinity in odd numbers, either in nativity, chance, or death.William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor
It’s a long while since I joined in the Thursday Trios fun, but today I stumbled across a folder of mostly odd objects in groups of three that I’d put aside for that challenge. The word ‘odd’ has two definitions:
- different to what is usual or expected
- (of numbers) not able to be divided exactly by two
The items in this collection of images are pretty random and some are definitely odd. Really the only thing that unites them is their threeness, although coincidentally there are three sets of very different pigs!
My featured photo was taken in Hoi An, Vietnam, in one of the traditional houses there open to the public, Phung Hung. The remainder are from all over the world, from Zimbabwe to New York City and from Iceland to Japan, finishing at home in the UK.
