They say a picture says a thousand words, but some of these shots will leave you scratching your head. From an abandoned bus turned art gallery, to quirky street performers, to a sky high file cabinet, it’s not uncommon for us to stumble upon things that take an extra moment or two to let the reality sink in. Sometimes there isn’t really an obvious answer, so we do what we do best in Vermont… Go with the flow. These 19 photos can be filed into 4 different categories: Weird, Wild, Wow or What The????? Let us know if you agree with the categories in the comments below.
1. Clock/Compass Barn - Wild.
It's not exactly clear why this has both a clock and a compass, or even why it has either.
2. Montpelier reflections - What The???
Some strange Main Street gift shop & its even stranger window display on the inside, merges with a commercial block, across the street, in the window reflection.
3. Church Street Didgeridoo - Weird.
This strange and talented street performer (with his didgeridoo and hand-carved mask) entertains shoppers on Church Street.
4. Wait... What season is it? Wow.
5. Dreaming in the woods - What The???
There is a lot of editing and photoshopping here, but this is pretty darn interesting.
6. UB OK? - Wow.
Just in case you were wondering, the bunnies in Montpelier always look out for each other.
7. Please Return Shopping Carts After Use - Weird.
An installation/outdoor sculpture made of everyday shopping carts found in Burlington, Vermont. This apparatus is an arc of shopping carts suspended in the air almost like a rainbow.
8. Hope Cemetery in Barre - Wild.
Some of the monuments found at Hope Cemetery are works of art to reflect the deceased' favorite things. This person must have really loved cars!
9. Woof? Weird.
Even this dog had to get a closer look to figure things out.
10. Don't look down... Wild.
Look again - This picture is actually facing upward. Photographer Nicholas Erwin is standing under this bridge.
11. Reuse, Recycle, Reduce - Wow.
An unusual flower vase at the Vermont State Fair. It reuses and recycles, but reducing may be pushing it.
12. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Glover... Weird.
Everything, everything at the Bread and Puppet theater makes you look twice.
13. Is that an art store and gallery? Wild.
Why, yes, I believe it is!
14. What The ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
What the heck is going on here?
15. Camouflaged - Wow.
The colors and overgrowth make this tractor in Addison almost undetectable.
16. If you think this looks like it could be the world's tallest file cabinet... Weird.
You would be correct. Located in Burlington and standing 38 feet tall, made of real file cabinets welded on top of each other into a skinny, towering pile. A sculptural statement built in 2002 by Bren Alvarez.
17. The speed of the wings is incredible! Wow.
A Black Capped Chickadee hovering at feeder at a backyard winter bird feeder in Vermont.
18. Telling it like it is. Wow.
The blinding, obvious truth, WoW, seen in the railing of the deck of the St John's Club, a social club on the Vermont shores of beautiful Lake Champlain.
19. That's not a statue... Wild.
It's a sand castle! Created on site at the Champlain Valley Fair
