Abnormal Things I Saw On My Way Home, Volume 1: Busnail and I

I’ve seen a number of abnormal and/or unpleasant things during recent commutes. Because I always have a camera with me, and because I like to tell stories that involve visual aids, I photographed them. When I downloaded the images on my camera, I was struck by the number of gross and/or weird photos I had taken. I could have asked myself “What’s wrong with me”, but instead I wondered, “What’s wrong with everyone else”.

And so begins a new series of posts, “Abnormal (and/or Unpleasant) Things I Saw On My Way Home”. Alternately titled “What’s wrong with you people”, where “you people” are the people in my city and neighbourhood. Yeah, you.

Here is your first installment.
