Stephen McMennamy est photographe mais il ne se contente pas seulement de prendre des objets ou des paysages, il les mélange les uns aux autres pour jouer avec les échelles et créer de très chouettes mashups aussi absurdes que plaisants à regarder.

    cardboard box + the "ice cube" ?? #tbt on a few levels. the structure is the Georgia archives building (built in 1965) and was designed by A. Thomas Bradbury. Google "georgia archives building" to learn more, but the headline is, the city plans to demolish it once it has the money to do so. BONUS MORSEL... my dad isn't on Instagram, but I'll show him a #combophoto from time to time. I asked if he recognized the building and he said, "yes, your grandfather was friends with the architect." which then unlocked even more enlightening old timey informational Atlanta nuggets about my grandfather and the cool stuff he bore witness to as this city was getting its architectural act together (though these men started their friendship at Lockheed in California). whatever, it's all pretty trippy and time is a flat circle and so on and so forth. DOUBLE BONUS... shot this with the drone on a windy ass sunny day, way back when we had sun in #Atlanta. ??? #weloveatl #box #architecture #drone #vscocam #combophotos

    bald eagle + banana (AKA: Uncle Toucan Sam) Ahh, the mighty and majestic Bald Eagle, chosen as the national symbol of the United States of America in 1782 because of its beauty, great strength, long life and possibly for its yellow nose (can’t confirm that last one, but I have my suspicions). Ahh, the South American banana, chosen for this #combophoto for no reason other than its coloration, beak matching properties and elegant curvature. History research side note (ripped from the pages of Wikipedia): Contrary to popular legend, there is no evidence that Benjamin Franklin ever publicly supported the wild turkey, rather than the bald eagle, as a symbol of the United States. However, in a letter written to his daughter in 1784 he stated his personal distaste for the bald eagle. In the letter Franklin states: “For my own part. I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly ... besides he is a rank coward: The little king bird not bigger than a sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district.” -Benjamin Franklin Okay, class dismissed!

    Tonight’s visual menu... A) chicken + cow B) chicken + horse C) cow + chicken I know, with such a bounty of animal abominations to choose from, it’s hard to decide which one is truly the most abominable. SIDE NOTE: I realize I could’ve gone with “fowl” instead of abominable there, but I gotta have some standards when it comes to puns. Mine are pretty low, mind you, but I mostly felt like it was important to show off my ability to use the dictionary... aaaaaand spellcheck. Anyway, clearly I’m on some sort of animal melding kick and I‘m sorry to bring you guys down that rabbit hole with me, but here we are, holding hands, supporting each other, asking our eyeballs, “what the hell am I looking at?”, but it’s probably in all our best interests to not ask questions. Let’s power through till next Thursday... where we may or may not be revisiting this uncomfortable conversation again. Until then, sweet dreams. #combophoto #comboabomination
