How It Looks from Here

I greatly enjoy pictures where, whether by contrivance or by serendipity, elements in the picture line up to create a humorous effect. I've done several other posts with such pictures — Can We Believe What We See? [1] and Perspectives [2].

Today I'm posting some more pictures that have come my way.

These poor people just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when their pictures were snapped.

We know from experience that cats are curious by nature, but this picture seems to prove it.

Sometimes objects in the sky seem are in great alignment with each other or with objects below to create an amusing sight.

I wonder if these next two were staged?

This one puts a whole new twist on "Facebook."

Maybe these people were just horsing around....

I know of people who are described as being "horse faced." But this is ridiculous.

I wonder if this was her bridle portrait?

The next two had to be contrived, but they still form an ... interesting image.

Could this be called a "tie breaker?"

This one is simply disturbing.

This next one shows great imagination in the use of shadows.

I think this aerial shot is really cool.

The other day I received a real story that is a verbal version of this phenomenon.

How would you pronounce this child's name? She spells her name "Le-a."

So how would you pronounce her name?

Leah? ............ No.
Lee - A? ............ Nope.
Lay - a? ............ No way.
Lei? ............ Nice try, but guess again.

This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone keeps getting her child's name wrong. She says it's pronounced "Ledasha."

When the Mother was asked how in the world she figured it should be pronounced that way, she said, "'cause the dash don't be silent!"

So, if you see a name come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce the dash.

All I can say is, "Wow!" They live among us, they have children, and some even vote.
