I caught this family of homeless aliens trying to sneak into the house yesterday. Well, I thought, I'll have none of that. And I promptly ejected them.
Oh, Aliens! What are they really, Michael? Doorknobs? Coathangers?

@givethemhell: They are bits of fun. Thank you, Eva.
I love aliens!

@Rags: Thank you, Rags.
Good riddance! They probably would have just experimented on you anyway.

@dpm: Glad you enjoyed it. thanks, dpm.

Very intriguing shot...

@ManuelaR: Here's a clue: "You're warm". Thank you, Manuela.
Lovely color and light!
10 Mar 2008 8:08am
@Ina: Thank you, Ina.
Another great shot Michael. The story's nice but I'm not digging it. hahaha.. It's killing me that I can't tell what they are. :(

@Ken: I'll reveal all on my post tomorrow. Thank you, Ken.
I've seen this pair hanging around here but didn't know they had those four kids . .
10 Mar 2008 9:23am

@Lorraine: Thanks, Lorraine. I'll have to turn the pic over to the U.S. Air Force I guess.
nice one - makes a good abstract and a better story
10 Mar 2008 11:04am
@Jason Kravitz: Thanks, Jason. Yes, a two birds with one stone kind of thing.
Very elusive these aliens are, well done to capture them
10 Mar 2008 11:13am
@Peter Miller: Thanks, Peter. This is certainly a rare occurence.
Beautifully done! And I agree - it's one thing for aliens to move in next door and quiet another into MY home!
10 Mar 2008 11:23am
@martie: Thanks, Martie. These are the kind that live in the attic.
Hey Michael, what about the famous Slovak hospitality? If they are homeless, let them come in and warm up, feed them and then send them to Canada. We have space enough and they'll have the chance to build a future for their kids..... :-)
P.S.: I really have no clue what they are, maybe the handles of tools for the fireplace?
10 Mar 2008 11:28am
@vu@granby - Wolfgang Prigge: You win the prize for your guess. My wife suggested I should let them come in and warm up by the fire but I thought that too much of a clue. Thanks for the excellent comment, Wolfgang.
Parts of a flower that you have added a chrome effect to? That's my guess. Anyhow, great work here!
10 Mar 2008 11:33am
@Craig: Thanks, Craiger. For the answer take a look at the comment above.
cool .... aliens... what an imagination......
10 Mar 2008 11:42am
@MJ: Thanks, MJ. Imagination can be fun.
cool story, oh and the shot is great also..
10 Mar 2008 12:56pm

Lovely concept with the dof.
10 Mar 2008 4:35pm
@pLusOne: Thank you, P1.
C'est vraiment étrange et abstrait, mais les couleurs et les formes font une photo esthétiques... même si on arrive pas à savoir ce que c'est. A quand la réponse ?
10 Mar 2008 4:48pm
@Evelyne Dubos: Merci, Evelyn. J'espérais une photo attrayante. Ce sont les poignées des outils pour une cheminée.
Hmmm - that's a toughie! I'd say your aliens resemble door handles, at least they're made of metal...
10 Mar 2008 4:57pm
@MadScientist: Actually they are the handles of fireplace tools. Thank you, MS.
wow...perfect! theyre cute!
10 Mar 2008 5:20pm
@Hoopand: thank you, Hoopand.
That's weird but how effecient ! Good abstract.
10 Mar 2008 5:48pm
@zOOm: Thank you, zoom.
Brilliant Michael, a really cool idea and capture.
The alien family really look dejected though, bless them :D
10 Mar 2008 7:28pm
@MaryB: Thanks you, Mary. I'll have to be a lot kinder to them next time.
I'm loving your sense of humour =D) the shot is really interesting too. were you playing with the liquify fiter by any chance?
10 Mar 2008 7:41pm
@drphoto: Thanks, Dan. Glad you enjoyed my bit of fun. I used the CS2 distort (twirl) filter to get the effect I wanted. Then some tint and soft focus in Picasa2.
Beautiful aliens! I love the colour tones!
10 Mar 2008 8:35pm
@standley: Thanks, Standley. I appreciate that.
Very interesting shot. i find myself wondering what it is, the disorientating nature really helps it draw my eye in.
10 Mar 2008 8:50pm
@dillonpic: Thanks, Dillon. Please check my post for tomorrow for an explanation of what this actually is.
I like your comment to this shoot!
10 Mar 2008 11:04pm

Wow, a very creative shot! Cool effect!

@Viewfinder: A great comment. Thank you, VF.
Viewfinder said it for me!! Excellent pp, Michael.
11 Mar 2008 3:15am
Sorry, meant to say this with the other comment... I think they're the tops of fireplace tools.. ;-)
11 Mar 2008 3:16am
@amy: Great guess! You are right. Thanks, Amy.
I don't know what is this but it's really funny!!!
11 Mar 2008 8:30am
@TILALAhttp://brunchwithbattutah.aminus3.: Tels sont mon idée des personnes d'une autre planète. Merci, Marie.
I looked at this one yesterday but wasn't signed in... I appreciate your sense of humor!
11 Mar 2008 10:48am
@Earnest: Thanks so much, Earnest.
I took in some homeless aliens a few years ago, but once the "fire" season ends, they disappear to the basement. ;-)
11 Mar 2008 4:46pm
@Steven: Great humorous comment. Thank you, Steven.
I've had aliens take the form of fireplace tools too. It's quite disturbing.
11 Mar 2008 11:52pm
@Oswegan: I agree. And we never get to see what the aliens really look like. Great comment, O.
wonderful picture and excellent title!
13 Mar 2008 7:45pm
@Magali Deval: Thank you, Magali.
How did you know they were homeless?
14 Mar 2008 1:39am
@Twelvebit: Why else would they sneak into the house? LOL. Thanks, 12bit.
Wonderful picture! I tried to guess what it really is but in vain! Congratulations, the shapes and composition and colors are really fantastic!
15 Mar 2008 8:32pm
@Illuci: Thank you so much for all your excellent comments. Erik.
