    Contortionist. Old circuses and carnivals are interesting, especially the side shows and freak shows with all the super weird stuff.

    Contortionist by E.O. Hoppé http://iladyoracle.blogspot.com/2011/04/circus-photography.html I absolutely love to see pictures/read about the old circuses, and this photo is so intriguing to me because at first glance you only notice the color attraction and strange shape. Only after staring at it for a few seconds do you realize it's a person. So surreal but its the juxtaposition of real life, which is awesome.
