Got a photograph of someone doing something really weird, or of something surprisingly odd or weird? Post it here.

This shot is titled "A chair, in a train car, in Eastern Europe". I happened to be walking by an open train car, and glanced inside to see... this. Any ideas, or spectulations on what it (why it's there) might be for?

I'll chip in.
This was taken on a NY-Tokyo flight. I switched to the in-flight camera view on the monitor, and saw this. Took a couple of shots of the screen. I still have no idea what this might have been, other than the obvious UFO thoughts.

Spooky or just feeling ropey?


Some kind of art in front of a (semi-)derelict building in Bristol, no explanation offered . I don't know whether it relates to the Thomas Chatterton plaque - there is a monument to Chatterton in the adjacent church St Mary Redcliffe.

Always wondered about these, strange collection of shoes on a fairly remote beach near Playacar Mexico. They stretched for about 20 metres, there were a few pairs but nothing that fitted me :-)

Shots taken in 2005 with a Fuji S20.

Was on a ghost tour in Virginia City, NV. Wasn't using a flash and the shot was completely backlit, their faces were in complete shadow. so I had to Raise the shadows a lot. after doing so the luminescence appeared on my wife's neck. Never seen that raising shadows before. Probably flare but...we were on a ghost tour.
