I decided to spend last week actively searching for artisitic photo opportunities. Artistic photo opportunities such as architectural details, clouds, black & white street scenes etc. etc. That didn't quite work out. The entire week I seemed to be stalked by extremely absurd subject matter.
Case in point. 100 yards from where I work was an old Latvian man selling his hand made birdhouses. To attract attention he attached this kissing deer installation to his pick-up truck.
The corner on which he was selling his creations is always empty. I've been working in the same location for 6+ years and he's the first person I've ever seen trying to sell his wares there. At that point I gave up trying to get "respectable" artistic photos and instead decided to embrace the oddities. Stay tuned for more oddities.
