I was just planning to take a picture of these interesting posts (to me anyway), which serve to stop vehicular traffic. Just as I took the shot this Stranger jogged in humming to himself. He looked like he belonged there.

Watching jellies...

These Strangers were watching the jellyfish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Its seems that EVERYBODY is a photographer these days!

Race Day...

This was a particularly nice morning for a swim...

Its Miller Time...

Sometimes, even Super Strangers need a cold one after a long week of saving the world. Its always handy to have your trusty sidekick nearby with a wagon of frothy refreshment.

Getting into character...

It takes a big man to admit he is better suited to dress up like Jack Black rather than a more classically-sexy leading man. This Stranger went all out to honor Black's colorful role as Nacho Libre. Bravo.

The ultimate Strangers...

You won't see more strange Stragers than watching 60,000 costumed walkers cross San Francisco in our annual Bay to Breakers.

Surrounded by nature...

This Stranger found a sunny spot to read the newspaper. This peaceful pond is one of several manmade water features in the SF Botanical Gardens. [Yes, this is a cross-post with Travels and Tribulations, but I really liked the serene image.]

These strangers may look like mad scientists, but in fact they are a new generation of gardeners of a sort. They work for a large firm in Florida that produces about 200,000 plants a week using plant micropropagation techniques. If you have purchased a Boston Fern, Banana Plant, Colocasia, or Spathiphyllum plant recently there is a good change that these strangers or strangers working for a similar firm created your plant by micropropagation.


One more from my pseudo series of shots from JMU's grauation. Initially I didn't think this was a particularly great shot since it's so busy (there's an awful lot going on in this picture). But since no one else is posting anything at the moment, it's suddenly looking better.

No Amateurs Allowed

Stranger at work letting the world know that credentialed people now work here.

She Flashed Me

I see no reason to stop milking pictures I took this past weekend at JMU's graduation ceremony. So here's another from that series. This, I think, was the official photographer for the event. What I found fascinating is that the camera(s) she's using are Nikon D70's. That's the same camera I use. Of course it looks like she's using a Sigma lens. Actually it looks like it's a pretty big sigma lens (who says size doesn't matter). And her flashes are positively huge. I should stop now because I could probably keep these bad euphemisms going all day.

Fear My Red Umbrella

Another shot from one of JMU's graduation ceremonies this past weekend. I'm fairly certain this guy was trying to let someone know where he was, either that or he had just pulled the umbrella out of a stone and was declaring himself the ruler of Camelot.

Am I Early?

I was at JMU over the weekend attending my cousin's graduation (let me give a quick congrats shout out to Jo Beth for getting through college). We ended up getting there a couple hours early, but this guy was already in place just sitting there. Of all the places to pick to sit, I couldn't figure out why he picked that spot. I never figured his plan, but I did think it made for an interesting shot.

Little red bike...

These two Strangers cracked me up. I'm walking across the parklot in front of the Homewood Suites, and here are two middle-aged businessmen, dressed in business attire, stooping over to adjust a bright red mountain bike.
