I wasn't trying for perfection here, but I did try to match shadows and lighting when possible.
A coworker had a cat named Oreo, which I believe may have weighed as much as 26lbs at one point. I think he was down to 21 when I took the shot. Towboat in the Back Bay near Keesler AFB. While I'm here...why do they call it a towboat when it pushes the barge?
My imagined AC-5 gunship, the gun being an image of an A-10 nose cannon, "upscaled."
Some test fixtures at work assembled by a student. I replaced the plain head with the head of a friend's daughter, and placed it outside the building.
"Kaylee Bunyan" roams the 9 Mile area of Riverside State Park.
Two photos of the same RF-101 static display, "back in action" inside Wolfe Hall.
When two jets aren't enough...? P-51 prop added.
Well, the sign does say to watch for aircraft operations...
Fellow photographers from Canada who don't like being photographed. I told them their Canons had a cloaking device.
Well...it's a "caution light," right? The Biloxi, MS lighthouse, plopped into the middle of a country road.
So it's a wheat trawler...what's wrong with that?
Give a photographer crap...and you never know "how" you'll show up in an inter-office email.
A coworker's truck with added armament...and a cat behind the wheel since he doesn't like cats.
Some of this silliness does have a practical purpose. It comes in handy when you have to retouch scenes or remove distracting objects...and make it believable. The rest of the time it's just good for a laugh.
