Stranger Photos Have Happened.

Sometimes I really love people. How sweet is this? SO sweet. It's easy to forget that all social networking doesn't have to happen online...


I tied a disposable camera to a bench with a sign that read:

Good afternoon,
I attached this camera to the bench so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I'll be back later this evening to pick it up.
Love, Jay / The Plug

When I retrieved the camera that night, I was happy to find that the entire roll of film had been shot. Below are the photos that were taken.

What a cool thing! I would just be afraid people would take pervy pictures. I like the one with the couple kissing, it's cute. Weird, I recognize a guy in those pictures...

I just love this idea. So fun and creative! How great that people played along, too.

I love this idea so much ! But unlike katelynjane, I was more afraid that the camera won't get returned.

That is so much fun. I too love that people went along with the whole thing and took pictures and didn't take the camera. Great.

I think the thing that's so lovely is that MOST of us immediately think the worst - and are amazed that no one took pervy pix or stole the camera. It's surprising and reassuring that people aren't always going to act on their worst instincts. Yay!

Ha! I love this!!!! So great looking at the expressions of the "strangers." They all really seem to be enjoying themselves.
