anatomy of weird

So about a week ago I am looking out my window and see a little girl walking into the wooded area between our apartment buildings (I suppose they are more like row houses or something, but this is military housing, so for lack of a better term, apartment), dragging behind her a vacuum. She stops in the middle of the clearing, sets it upright and walks away. I figure at any moment her mama is going to yell out to her to bring that thing back inside, it doesn't belong out there. No calls from mama. And it's still there. Through wind and rain and sunshine.

I edited this picture a little, saturated the colors and fiddled with brightness. I decided that the green was too dull in the shade, it was left looking washed out. This probably just means that I need to work on figuring out more of the settings on my camera, but I'll eventually figure it out. For now, photoshop to the rescue! I also noticed that if you look closely you can seen some sort of bug crawling up the back of the vacuum. At first I thought it was a spider until I viewed the image in its original size. I'm not sure what it is, but there are only six legs, and it looks like there might be small wings. Either way, the whole scene cracks me up. Vacuums in the woods. Who woulda thunk it?
