Strange Elegance in Silly Photos (my favorites from “Picture is Unrelated”)

I’ll admit it: at the end of the week, when my brain is creaking-full of classwork, I look at silly pictures because they take so little thought, they let me slow my thinking for a while. Most they are pictures of people ruining photos or jury-rigged fixes. But every now and then, I find a photo collection that makes me think in different ways–maybe not deep thoughts, but certainly deeper than squee! cute kitty! Picture is Unrelated is part of icanhascheezeburger‘s harem of funny sites, and while it’s unifying theme is weak, it has a few older and more stylized photos which are, to me, oddly elegant gems*:

  1. Flying Lotus
  2. Puppets Have Families Too
  3. It’s Not Easy Being Green
  4. Blowing His Chicken
  5. Tuesdays

*I can’t seem to embed them, and I don’t want to spoil them, so I will have to link to their not-always-evocative names.

“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”–Matt Hardy
