Or, the power of reflection.
Lovely yet awkward. If my mom made me an album, I’m not sure I’d want it immortalized quite like this. “Mother! Put some clothes on!”
I really don’t want to know what that squatting violinist is up to.
But at least, in the end, they reach the golf cart on the right-hand side of the street.
Or should that be “plenty of horns”?
That’s not quite what they meant by “col legno”…
“Thankfully the violinist survived the tragic steamroller accident to play another day,” said the reader who submitted this.
But seriously, where did her legs go? Is she a mermaid?
As @dasmooke said, the sunlight is most intriguingly placed.
The winning caption comes from @zerbinettasblog: “He is an angel sent from heaven to sing you an aria, then sell you a crappy used Peugeot.”

Don’t fall off the wall with the force of the blast, folks.
And don’t smile.
This is another photo from a calendar. (Previously.) It manages to be both gorgeous and supremely awkward.
And toast to…. I don’t know what.
…and your cello even closer.
If not a feather, perhaps was it an earthquake that knocked them over? A hurricane? Tornado?
And what are we supposed to think of that leg wrap-around? Gentlemen, care to explain?

But none of these trios had figured out the Eternal Piano Problem: how to include the pianist’s instrument in a photo shoot without draping everyone awkwardly around the piano itself.
Fear not. There is a solution.

Yeah, these aren’t strictly classical albums. But we couldn’t resist.
These puns weigh heavily upon us.
The paranoid photographer says, “Stop looking at me.” One guy laughs and looks away. “Seriously, do not look at me.” Another one looks away. “I mean it.” They look serious and turn their eyes away.
(Thanks to Saporman99 for sending this in.)
He got tired of feeling like a mere prop to lovely women in red dresses.
They wouldn’t even look at him.
So he took matters into his own arms.
You, too, mister.
Also: color balance, anyone? That poor horn player looks a little jaundiced.
A brave musician sent in some awkward outtakes from her quartet’s photo shoot.
I could swear there were four pe – hey, dude behind the tree, your viola is showing.
Sometimes, we’re just left without words.
Two different people have sent this one in.
Let’s just make it Awkward Piano Trio Day.
