Strange Stock 001

In my line of work I spend a lot of time searching on stock sites for imagery. I use this mostly as a tool to express concepts to clients, hoping to find useful, relevant imagery for my presentations. But as some of you may know, for every one good image on a stock site, you must sift through dozens of inappropriate, and sometimes downright baffling other images. In this section I will share some of my findings.

I didn’t have tons of faith I would find many images like this (and I was right) but I had a sneaking suspicion I’d come across a couple questionable finds. I was right. Here you go‚Ķ

Not sure I need many words for the above image, but suffice to say, it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind.

Typical, the woman wants the man’s attention, but the man only has eyes for his M&M cheese pizza.

This is a literal example of someone holding cheese. I can only assume this guy is checking the ripeness of his cheese wheel, but man, it’s a strange image nonetheless. I was tempted to use it just for effect.
