Corner of Virginia and Highland

Virginia_highland Jay Carlson tied a disposable camera to a bench with a sign that read:

Good afternoon,
I attached this camera to the bench so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I'll be back later this evening to pick it up.
Love, Jay / The Plug

When he retrieved the camera that night, he was happy to find that the entire roll of film had been shot. Below are the Stranger Photos that were taken

Great links as usual!
The picture linked in "A stranded ship by David J. Nightingale"
is the Irish-sea ferry Riverdance, which was hit by a freak wave on the first of february, 2008, seven miles off the north-west coast of England. Cargo shifted, and the ship took on a severe list, losing power and at the mercy of the storm. It eventually went aground fairly close to shore, all passengers and crew were airlifted to safety by rescue helicopters of the R.A.F.
An excellent photoset can be seen on the pages of the Blackpool Gazette, (http://tinyurl.com/3c9n6z), some sent in by readers.
Riverdance, after further storms is now lying on its side, and sinking deeper in the sand. It looks as though attempts to salvage have been abandoned.
