Published 4 years ago

John Marshal is a Maine-based photographer whose creativity seems to know no bounds.

He even comes up with unique and funny captions for each one! So far John has nearly 11 k followers on his Instagram account and I’m pretty sure you’ll join them too once you see his creative photos.

#1 The Glide

Some moments are beyond words.

#2 The Miscalculation

Shadow thought she could jump across the canyon. I didn’t think she could make it.
Then she tried.
Unfortunately, I was right.

#3 The Iron Giant

When we really need one, there’s nothing better than a strong friend to lean on. Someone who’ll just stand there and listen. Like a giant robot.

#4 The Hike

“Look at us,” I said. “We’re lost in the woods. It’s almost dark. Whose idea was it to take this stupid hike anyway?”

#5 The Tour

When Impala Safari promises “Up Close Nature Tours,” they are not kidding.


Hey! Who took a bite of my apple?” I asked the three Presidents.“I can not tell a lie,” George said. “I did not do it.” “They don’t call me ‘Honest Abe’ for nothing,” Abraham said. “I didn’t do it either.” Then it was Donald’s turn. He swallowed what was in his mouth and simply said, “Obama!”

#7 The Helpful Local

I almost never ask for directions. But when I finally admitted I was lost to a local down on the beach, he actually offered to give me a ride.

#8 The Incredible Hulk

“There’s more racism over there,” I said.
“Hulk smash!” The Hulk replied.

#9 The Hunting Party

When I was asked to go duck hunting, this is not at all what I expected.

#10 The Cannonball

You know that expression: Look before you leap? Yeah, maybe a quick peek isn’t a bad idea.

#11 The Rescue

I didn’t ask how she got the plastic six-pack holder stuck around her neck. I was just happy to help.

#12 The Realization

I’d never really given it much thought… but tonight, as my brothers chirped on and on about their favorite kind of worm and my sisters pecked mites out of their feathers, the idea occurred to me that perhaps I’d been adopted.

#13 The Abduction

Of all the days to take my cow for a ride, I had to choose this one.

#14 The Coyote

True friends stay beside us when times get tough.

#15 The Hatch

It was such an honor to be in the field as the turtledoves were hatching.

#16 The Disappointment

“Are you the great and powerful Genie?”
“No. Sorry, love. I’m the cleaning lady. Just tidying up between renters.”

#17 The Dog House

You know when you imagine someone else’s life is more comfortable than it actually is? Yeah, that’s how I felt up there on that doghouse.

#18 The Date

I offered to drive to the restaurant, but Supergirl said she knew a shortcut.


At a moment when violence and deep hatred is literally burning across our country, I offer this image as a call for peace and a prayer that one day every black boy and girl will be able to grow up in the United States with respect, opportunity and safety.


“Are you coming for me?” I asked Death. “Is it because of the virus?” “Oh, no,” Death replied. “I just thought I’d trim these bushes.”

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
