This STRIKING Images page
! Preliminary !
Pictures, categories, and information links
may be added, if/when I revisit this page.


The images below are ones that seemed particularly striking to me. Some are pleasant, a few disturbing, many generating a mixture of emotions.

Many are pictures of people --- or other life forms.

You will see that some of the photos were magazine covers. Apparently a picture editor thought those photos were striking too.

Some striking pictures in 'more inanimate' categories --- such as architecture --- namely amphitheatres and buildings and castles --- are on other 'Pictures' pages of this site.

'Scary' pictures --- such as pictures of sharks, spiders, and microscopic bugs --- could certainly be classified as 'striking'. I put those pictures on a separate 'Scary Photos' page.

This page provides me a place to collect 'striking' photos that do not fall into those other categories.

More 'striking' photos?

I started this collection in 2009 with only a few photos --- without grouping them into categories.

I may add photos (and perhaps other types of images, such as drawings or computer-generated images) over time.

If there seems to become a need for grouping into categories, I will organize the page into categories at some point, if many more images are collected.

How to Navigate the images :

You can simply scroll down this page to view the images.

Ways to View the images :

Each photo is shown scaled to a width proportional to the width of your browser window.

As a consequence, you can control the size of the images by changing the width of the browser window.

Each photo is a link to a new window (or tab) that shows the image at its natural size. Click on any photo to see it in a separate window.

Close (or minimize) the separate window(s) to access this window again.

Most of the images are medium- to high-resolution --- more than 300 pixels wide.

This picture makes me think of humanity faced with extreme poverty.
How lucky I am. (There seems to be fear in the eyes, yet with
some hint of future promise or potential.)

This is a baby picture of the kind one seldom sees.
The human body is amazing. Life in general is amazing.
This picture reminds me of how we must feed our bodies properly,
to preserve the magic. Companies like Coca-Cola and Pepsi are
not helping --- far from it. I found out the hard way.

This is a picture of man on a different spheroid from Earth.
An earth-shaking achievement --- or perhaps moon-shaking.

This a picture of the 'baby' of some proud poppa farmer.
The unusual size of this fruit-of-the-earth is striking.
It grew to that size in a few months.
Again, life is amazing --- and comes in so many amazing forms.

This is a jolting picture that evokes feelings of what it
might be like to have a loaded gun pointed at your face.
Not good --- not good at all.
