My husband and I were going through some small-ish towns while he was on a business trip. While he would stop-in for meetings, I would walk about and check things out and take a few photos. Somehow, this was the only one I got with other people in it.
Apparently, Midland is a town with too many murals to know what to do with. I did see many but only took a photo of this one as it was the largest one I saw.

In this photo I am posing as a Rib Monster. Shortly after this (about 6 hours) I gave up meat altogether. This was my first half-rack of the day, more were to follow and disastrous consequences ensued. Now most of Rib Fest (officially titled the International Chicken & Rib Cook-Off) takes place on Sparks Street but there was no seating so we headed over to a little pavilion on the corner of Wellington and Metcalfe right in front of Parliament Hill. It was quite windy.

On of the last Lynx games before the team moves to the USA. It was busier than it looks here because we were sitting right behind first base and most people were behin3 home plate and 3rd base. As with the theme of this site, I only know the people in the foreground. Who are the others?

As far as I’m concerned, these are all strangers in the background as I was just taking a photo of the spectacle of having someone play the piano on a busy street corner.
I’m currently working on getting everything up and running but let me start you off with the general idea.
We all have photos with strangers in the background. Some are on vacation, some at local events, even family gatherings. We could be looking at these same strangers for years and know nothing about them except they way they looked at a particular moment in time.
This site is a collection of such photos organized by location and date where people can submit photos and also look for themselves and people they know in the backgrounds.
If you would like to submit a photo (or multiple photos) please send an email to [strangersinthebackground at gmail dot com] with the following information:
- attached photo(s)
- location (city, province/state, country, event/specific locale)
- date (year month and day - estimations must be noted)
- a couple sentences describing what’s going on in the photo
I reserve the right to edit the photo for size and possibly decency as well as to edit the description for grammar and flow if necessary.
