Contest: Make Use of This Useless Image

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Stock images are useful for writers and editors who need an illustration to illustrate their article. That’s why photographers for stock image websites often try to create pictures that will suit every imaginable situation. The thing is, sometimes it’s impossible to guess just what the image was supposed to illustrate in the first place. BuzzFeed has a collection of 60 great stock images that seem entirely useless, so let’s make a game of it.

You have until May 19th to come up with any type of situation that this image could help illustrate. Winner will receive a can of homemade jam, one of my well-maintained, pre-owned books or $5, your choice.
