(Extra)ordinary in ordinary sight

An oil spill, on the roadside from an ordinary vehicle, spreading in a bit of standing water, collected from last night's rain. This morning the oil spill is shining strongly due to intense sun rays falling on it
On my walk this morning, I saw an oil spill, likely from an ordinary vehicle. I got interested because it looked so beautiful. It had artistically spread in the standing water, collected from last night’s rain. And this morning, the same oil spill shimmered, emitting rainbow-like colors, under clear skies and pure sun rays. I thought how (extra)ordinary is this!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “(Extra)ordinary.”

…thank you for visiting my blog…until next time:)

    That’s such a great example of something that normally would be considered a blight on the landscape — becoming something extra-ordinary. It looks like something one might see looking out of an airplane window. Love it!

      Thank you Kim. It’s just the opposite. Saw it all the way down on the ground :). Yaz

    That is a fabulous photo. At first I thought it was a section of an oil painting until I read your post. I suppose it is an ‘oil painting’ in one way. ๐Ÿ™‚

      That is right… an “oil painting” right on Earth canvas. A great comment. Thank you.

      This is something I passed by walking my dog on a sidewalk ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought how crazy is this…an oil spill from a car made it to the sidewalk!
