99th Show&Tell Competition: Things aren't what they seem

Post Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:32 am


Hello! It's an honor to be hosting the next Show and Tell Competition.

There have been so many great topics already covered that coming up with a new one was fairly challenging. We'll see how it goes. The theme I have chosen for the 99th Competition is: “Things aren't what they seem"

What I'm looking for are photos that invoke one or more of the following: curiosity, confusion, wonder, puzzlement, deception, a sense of "What is this?!" Maybe the subject will become obvious on closer inspection; maybe it won't. If you think captions/titles are needed for explanation, feel free. If you prefer to keep the audience guessing, that works too. The winner won't necessarily be based on whether or not I "get it."

The best example I can come up for this topic is:

The competition will end on Thursday October 9 at 12:01 am Eastern Standard Time.

Enjoy!
