Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Humor

hu·mor
/ˈ(h)yo͞omər/
noun 1. the quality of being amusing or comic.

What makes something humorous or funny? And how would you represent that in a photograph? Is it the unexpectedness of it, the surprise? I think that’s what makes the juxtaposition of objects in an image comical. There’s also the imagining of behavior between subjects in an image.

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
