People watching at airports, via Freakjet

If you’re stuck at the airport you can shop, eat, sleep, read a book, listen to music, chat with your traveling companion or maybe do some work.

Or you can do what Mike Figliuolo and his followers at do: snap photos of strange-looking people – or regular folks just doing strange things – and post those photos on-line, accompanied by a snarky caption.

Here’s a sample, snapped at San Francisco International Airport.

Freakjet’s caption on this one is: Grizzly Adams is pooped.

There are a lot of photos of people with really bad hairdos, folks dressed in incredibly bad outfits, and candid shots of people sleeping in strange poses. Some photos seem sort of mean, but most are just wacky.

Figliuolo says these are all real pictures and if anyone complains about being part of the show, he’s happy to remove the offending image.

In the meantime, he’s hoping anyone with a camera and an eye for the unusual at the airport takes a moment to snap a photo and send it along.

    @Caitlin – when in public, one has no reasonable expectation of privacy (that’s actually a legal precedent) and if anyone wants their pic removed, they need only write us. Besides, it’s not so much that he’s asleep – it’s that HE’S DECIDED TO TAKE A NAP RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TERMINAL WALKWAY.

    Lighten up.

    Wow, this seems like a gross invasion of privacy. I know people post photos all the time but now, if you fall asleep somewhere, your image might end up in a wider distribution than any newspaper?
