If you find a disposable camera tied to a bench on a string, grab hold, because you could become part of a crowd sourced visual journal of beauty and simplicity.

"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"

"Stranger Photos Have Happened" is a fun, imaginative project that I hope sets a new trend in bringing people together in the flesh. I find Jay’s concept truly captivating; it lets people indulge in the moment, and shows how the same place can be experienced so differently by other people.
