    A new kind of trivial photo thread just for fun.

    The idea- Post a photo...which you think has something unusual going on....& then guess what it is....

    The first picture above is from Niagara Fall's way back in 1904 or so.....

    It occurred to me the folks sitting on the bench are facing the wrong direction....

    The bench is backwards...& the folks just sitting there...

    I'm thinking they are missing the beauty of the view & the bench should've been facing the other way towards the waterfall....

    But That's just my perception....

    Maybe there was something more exciting for the bench sitters to look at in the camera's direction that we can't see in the photograph.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    man, that has " happy little trees" all over it. I can hear Bob Ross doing a voice over on that one. I has all the elements he loved. Pine trees, reflections in water, snow capped mountains in the background, clouds.

    maybe it was placed that way knowing people would want to have their picture taken with the waterfall in the background? No one anticipated the crowds that would probably make that impossible today.

    It's real.... from Jasper National Park Alberta on Spirit Island Maligne Lake....

    I copied the pic from a FB page I like they post local scenery & old vintage historical stuff I know that particular photo looks surreal as though its a painting...which is why it caught my eye enough to copy it....I just went back & doublechecked & it's captioned & commented about as a real photograph...not a painting...

    That's why I posted it....it's sensational...looks like a painting....but real....in Jasper Alberta...

    I want to go there & see it with my own eyes.

    Unless they are lying....but I don't think so everything else on the page seems real what motive would they have....

    I know....I too thought it looked like a painting....but the captions & comments say otherwise....????

    Not sure that's a bench. I think they brought their own chairs.

    LOL. I was thinking real on that one. The island and water looked way to real.

    They may have had the chairs there simply to take a scenic picture. Actually its further proof of time travel. The guy in the photo looks very similar to "Rusty" from European Vacation. Wearing the same beret he had on at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

    I still say it's painting.

    If you look at it closely, it does not look real at all.
