One of the joys of street photography is that it reveals just how often unexpected, serendipitous juxtapositions are happening around us. Whether in Tel Aviv, New York, or Athens, Anthimos Ntagkas has a keen eye for these everyday alignments as he captures strange and amusing sights during his travels. Working in the Greek Army by day, Ntagkas spends his free time photographing passersby as they go about their commutes and appear as if they’re carrying a dog in a backpack, for example, or are the source of a billowing plume of smoke.

Ntagkas’ images are on view at Andora Cinema in Athens, and you can follow his witty frames on Instagram. (via PetaPixel)
