Howdy!

Thanks to the user who suggested this idea. I think it's great!. The next topic is : Foreign Object. Simply take a picture of something that is out of place. A coffee cup in a forest, a can of pepsi in a coke machine, etc. Be creative!.

Rules: This is strictly a photography contest! No photo chopping, but contrast, brightness, levels and other minor touch-ups (healing tool will be allowed for film and print scans). Please avoid any text on the photograph, except at most a copyright statement, remember distractions like text can take away from the composition. Digital and film photography are both allowed. Only one submission per user will be allowed.

You MUST have taken the image yourself.

I was going to put the whole thing in my dryer for a multi-dimensional WTF effect, but I couldn't get the case to stand up and have the side facing the door so I could shoot it. :(

How can something be naturally out of place ?
If there's anything natural about it, wouldn't it not be out of place ? :scratchhead:

Joebert, try picturing a green tree in a desert... that would be naturally out of place. Example

But it's there naturally, so it can't be out of place.

What's the difference between the wind putting something somewhere, and me, we're both part of nature.

My point is, any placement is technically valid. What's normal for the dirt under a rock, is alien to me. :D

I kinda like where this is going, seeing as I got the idea in a philosophy class about existence. :D

Is that a Cyprus Tree ?
Those naturally live in water like that.

But not to kill anything off, that is a cool photo. :D

Thanks to all for the kind words. It's one of my favs that I have taken. The tree is indeed a cypress. It's one of the many found in Reelfoot Lake.

Joebert's right, they grow there naturally, but there's a bit more to it, too. Reelfoot Lake was created by the New Madrid Earthquakes in the early 1800's, so without the earthquake, there'd be no water for the tree to live in. In the end, I guess you could say that's a natural occurrence, too. Heck, it's all relative.

There's actually a pretty decent read about the lake on wikipedia here if you're looking to lose 15 minutes of your life in the name of useless knowledge, lol.
