I'm looking for objects that look out of place or paradoxical in their surroundings. It could be something in every day life, or it could be something that you set up (a toaster in a waterfall for example - unplug it first, please!).
This is a little more difficult than the usual competitions, so I'm looking for lots of creativity! Good luck!

Remember, everyone is welcome to join in. You don't need to be an expert or to have a fancy camera, this is all just about having fun and, through that, getting better at photography.
Just please make sure you've read all the rules before sending in your pictures.
As per usual, you may submit up to two photos for this competition.
