billboard portrait

Woman and flying saucer


My flickr contact Tatsuo Suzuki posted this fantastic billboard portrait taken in Tokyo, Japan of an elderly woman hunched over with various bags in front of a billboard with a flying saucer in it, among other things. If one projects, it looks like the weight of her bags and her concentration on walking is keeping her from noticing a flying saucer. Or, she’s making eye contact with its alien driver. Incredible, what a juxtaposition!

Flickr member Max Gor took this great street shot in London. People in front of billboards for interesting juxtapositions are really fun to track and people all over the world shoot them.

I’ve posted many over the years but it’s tough to find them there so I’m making a new tag for them: billboard portrait and I’m going back through many years of posts to add that tag to the no doubt dozens if not more images that I’ve posted that exhibit this technique.
