Everyday surrealism pics

Recommended Posts

Alamy says that "everyday surrealism" is a growing trend -- not surprising given how surreal the world is these days. B)

 

Does anyone have any images that they think would fit this category?

 

Here's one of mine that I thought might qualify (not Photoshopped):

Alan, yours reminded me of this one. Not sure how surreal mine is, though.

Here is one of mine. I walk past this spot about once a week so the fairy door is everyday surrealism for me. Usually the door is closed. One day I managed to photograph one of the little people peeking out, but the camera immediately formatted the entire chip all on it's own.

A great subject.

Alan's photograph had me fooled at first.

Think mine fits the category. I like the way the girl is looking straight at me.

Those first two photos are really well seen and executed. And I am jealous because I would never have spotted them.

Not sure if you're referring to my image. Thanks kindly if you are. Actually, there was very little forethought involved. The pigeon's shadow appeared in the frame just as I was about to press the shutter. A surreal moment, I guess you might say.

 

I think that Bill's fairy door is very clever. Too bad he's starting to see little people, though. B)

John I was wondering why there is a what looks like jellyfish at the bottom middle of your image?:)

Starting to see? I have always seen them. Doesn't everybody?

I do too. Must be a Canadian thing.

It is a jellyfish, a surreal one.

I have never, to my knowledge, seen the little people. But I have seen people from the future when walking around Cambridge, UK.

 

Easy to recognise as they are dressed all in pink.;)

 

Took photos of them when I see them but the images seem to disappear from the card, or are never seen in the first instance by the sensor.:o

Plenty of fairies to be seen in Cottingley. They're a pest, frankly; I have to beat them away with a rolled-up newspaper...

Little blighters have housing estates in our woods in Ireland. Tried everything to get a pic of the bin men but no joy so far.:D
