What do the best poems have in common? Tension. When you put things together that don't necessarily belong together, it creates tension -- in words, or in pictures. It's why I love song mash-ups, and screwy love stories between people who shouldn't love each other, and crazy food combos like cantelope-basil ice cream.
So when I found this video about a photographer who takes pictures of strangers posing together, I knew I had to keep it. Because it's all kind of awkward, and that makes it all kinds of good.
