Dr C Sprocken submitted this photo with an accompanying short story:

I’m a self titled goth hunter. Every night I go out with hopes to capture eternally gorgeous images of goths in the wild. Lately, my work has been completely dead and not in a good way. As I went on a dismal walk during the last autumnal evening in Kansas City, I thought to myself that all the spookiness in this town must have been completely eradicated by the proliferation of readily available slurpee machines. Just as I was about to give up and go drool over latex unicorn man viral videos, I noticed something aglow high up in a tree. With my camera at the ready I crept close. The feeling that something special was about to unfold rattled deep in my bones. I lifted up a prickly branch, darted under, and snapped shots like crazy. I was blinded and two large somethings skittered past me like howler monkeys into the night! I laid writhing in a pile of tree needles for about an hour until I could see again. When I finally could, this photo was the only one that remained on my camera. I believe I have captured the rarest and greatest photo in the history of gothdom! The mere existence of gothic man booty already makes this an incredibly rare photo! However, this is clearly a moment captured during the ancient ritual summoning of The Great Lord Bootyzebub known to have once blessed a young Trent Reznor. Never before today has such a rare occurrence been documented and released to the public! May Bootyzebub rise again!

In summary: Night time? ✔ Height in tree: high Goth count: 2 Outfit rating: high Not smiling: ✔ Gothic arse-in-moonlight: ✔ My satisfaction level: through the canopy. Bonus points: excellent boots, mention of Trent Reznor’s arse (haha look at Trent’s arse in cut-offs.  I wonder if he’s a never-nude?)
5 out of 5 - Nothing beats a gothic arse-in-moonlight shot.

The Tessellated Tiles of Tasmania

Strangely created by nature and not man are the tessellated tiles of Tasmania. Located near the southern end of Tasmania on the Tasman Peninsula, Eaglehawk Neck is a thin stretch of land which links two Islands. It is the Earth’s finest example of tessellated pavement.

Tessellated pavement is an extremely rare erosional feature that forms in flat sedimentary rock lying on ocean shores. The pavement earned this name due to rocks fracturing into polygonal blocks that resemble tiles or tessellations. The resulting patterns are another example of nature’s beauty and mystery.

Inquisitor submitted this photo with the comment “Here you see my friend Porange. I was taking perfectly sensible photos of her one night, when a bystander said “Goths up trees!” I, knowing little of the ways of the world, replied “That’s a thing?” Next I knew, we were bound for pastures arboreal… Enjoy.”
To the helpful bystander who made this photo happen, I salute you.  This is an excellent night shot of a paled up lady bedecked in black and white.  Our goth is high up the tree and she’s not smiling.  She looks comfortable in her up-tree pose as if she’s waiting for something. Bonus points for perfect face angling.
5 out of 5 -  If you’re going to yell “goths up trees” at goths, please make sure:a) that the people you’re yelling at are actually goths (and not metallers or hardcore/scene/emo/punk kids or individuals who just love wearing black and don’t identify with any subculture thankyouverymuch),b) that they’re having a photoshoot near a tree, andc) you’re prepared for disdainful looks and eye-rolling if they’re not in a frisky mood.

This is Po Tato and she is one sad pink eye. Po used to find her husband a-peeling, but now she cannot find him at all.

This is Pinky, the pink eyed potato. Pinky is a sad potato. “Why is Pinky sad?” you ask, well let me tell you. Pinky’s girlfriend Beccy, the Kennebec potato was going through a bad stage in her life, she started getting around with a bad crowd, commonly known as the ‘Baked Potatoes’ as they were always high. Beccy started to get high with the baked potatoes and one day, on her way home she was picked by a stranger who took her to the local Praties. Poor Beccy was served with garlic prawns and curried scallops for Seafood Month and gobbled up by a small child who wouldn’t eat the skin. This is why Pinky is sad. So next time you are asked “What do you say to a Praties?” think twice and save a potato.

I submitted this photo with the comment: “me and me mates up some trees”
Happy Goth Christmas everyone! Yes, yes, some people call it Halloween but it’s actually Goth Christmas to those in the know (all 20 of us).  Like a big goth satan santa I bring you 7 goths up 3 trees (and one supporting cast member pretending to be a rock)!  You will notice that some are in Halloween costume; you can see the Mad Hatter there but there’s also the Terminator and an absinthe fairy hiding in the trees.  It’s hard to get a good idea of who’s smiling and who’s just complaining that they’re being spiked in the bum by a branch but you try and keep your friends still at a 3am post-goth-club gathering up trees after you’ve plied them with absinthe.  Bonus points given for everything.
5 out of 5 - 7 goths up 3 trees.  Try and beat that.

Awkward poses, man was I drunk!
