What Is Going On Here? - Page Five

There are portraits and action shots and there are landscapes and interiors. There are many photographic subjects. When we page through the albums we have various oo/ah reactions. Beauty and humor, memories and nostalgia; each photograph sparks it's own comment and reaction.

But here now is a collection photographs that make the observer ask just one question:

What is going on here?

Sometimes there's an answer, but sometimes not.
