Awkward Science Stock Photography



Most of my blogging time is dedicated to my hit image blog Fresh Photons these days, but I recently came across this great image above on a blog called Awkward Stock Photos. Whimsically, I decided to see what other stock images were available under the tag “Experiment” and I basically laughed my way through 70 pages of results. To be honest, most of them aren’t so bad, but here are some of my personal favourites,
