Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Unusual.

Even for jaded New Yorkers, this picnic in the park was perhaps just a bit unusual…

Update March 18, 2012:

OK, I confess. This wasn’t quite an ordinary picnic in the park, even a New York City park…

It was a performance piece called Imaginary Picnic by the Push Pops that we saw at last year’s Figment NYC, a two-day art festival held in June on Governors Island in New York Harbor. We wrote about our visit here, and more photos—some of them likewise a bit unusual!—are here.

Unfortunately, it rained pretty steadily the whole day of our visit. Consequently the Imaginary Picnic was a bit wilted. But its full glory can be seen here:

To see, and photograph, more unusual scenes, visit this year’s Figment! Figment NYC 2012 will be held, again on Governors Island, on June 9-10. We’ll see you there!


Some other nice interpretations of “Unusual” that I’ve seen:

  14. Thank you all for your comments!

    I must confess to a slight withholding of information. This was not an ordinary picnic (although I’ve seen ordinary New Yorkers get up to things that were quite as strange, and unusual, on a number of occasions). I will reveal all in a couple of days—watch this space!


  15. A mad hatter’s tea party in the park! Lovely.
