    A while back, I introduced a thread for bad photos.

    Many just said no. But a few brave, or, perhaps discretion-challenged individuals published examples of marvelously bad photography.

    In that same spirit, I'd like to rekindle the flame. To reintroduce a special place to acknowledge and appreciate some of the really awful photos we've taken. Photos we should have deleted, but somehow just couldn't.

    Starting things off this time, let me present: "Dogs of the Evening." As soon as I saw this image, I knew just where it should go.

    Thanks, Incabloc and Gary. It's good to know it wasn't just me, the photo evokes "bad" to others too.

    David, thanks for jumping in! The black, the white, the ground-down concrete to lessen a chance of tripping. I have to say: although yes the bird turned-tail, this photo simply refuses to.

    :tongue:

    Ah, the expression of youthful exuberance, obliterated by vantage point. That one falling ember, could it be reaching out to tickle, or to just burn horribly?

    And in the second: parallelism of jelly-existence to human-existence. Could the smaller jellyfish be just as awkward to other jellyfish, floating there with its mom? Hmmm. A bit of photoshop to give the jellyfish glasses might not be over-the-top here. Might not.

    Somehow, the lack of focus is simply not missed at all in either image. Remarkable!
