Awkward Stock Photos crowdsources and posts strange, inelegant, and awkward photos gathered from Internet stock photo sites. Stock photography is taken without a specific end use in mind then licensed for use by the stock photo provider.

The photos on Awkward Stock Photos retain their watermarks, so it's easy to track them down if you want to make a licensing purchase, which might not be a bad idea. Instead of taking photos for an article, you can make up a story for the photo and provide it a reason for being instead of asking, "What were they thinking?"
