Default JumbleTown's "Accidental Gallery"

Background to JumbleTown's "Accidental Gallery"

It all started back in August, 2008. JumbleTowner LeLapin posted an item called 'Giant Hair Clip' in the Miscellaneous forum. She took a photograph of the 10cm turquoise hair-clip with her camera-phone and uploaded it. To my eyes at least, the image could have come straight off the walls of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA).

And I wasn't the only one who thought this. LeLapin was delighted with the image she'd created and JumbleTowner Marty F suggested that 'Reserved for Soniakot' (the item was actually reserved for JumbleTowner Soniakot) seemed like an appropriate title for the image. Yes, it was all very whimsical but...

Marty F also suggested that we create a gallery for such photos -- images of ordinary, everyday objects that are transformed by either accident or design, and which stand out from the photos that usually accompany ads on JumbleTown.

So, since August 2008, whenever I've come across an intriguing photo, I've set it aside. (Admin's Archive has tens of thousands of ads -- one wonders how many gems reside there. If I get the time, I'll have a look.)

And...here it is, a very personal and quirky selection of photos that have caught my eye. One could wax lyrical about all of them. For example, 'Hangers' by Durran is a riot of colour and movement that would probably appeal to Jack B. Yeats. 'Bathroom Cabinet' by Journeyman is reminiscent of Magritte and...yes, you're probably right -- I should get out more...

Finally! If any of the 'artists' featured below wish to have their photo or identifying User Name removed, please let me know. Also, if any Member comes across a photo that they think should appear in the gallery, they should copy and paste the item's address (in the address bar at the top of your screen) and PM it to me for consideration. Of course, Members should feel free to comment on the thread.
