Election 2010: Some extras
As you can imagine, we have received thousands of pictures on the photo-wire services relating to the election over the past month.
Among them are many photographs taken in everyday situations as the potential members of Parliament go about campaigning. Most aim to illustrate a moment, to show who was where and what they were doing.
Despite the media scrum surrounding the three main party leaders as they make their way around the country, some photographers have managed to catch the would-be PMs looking isolated or disconnected from their surroundings, often as though they are extras on the scene.
When these pictures are removed from context, they have an element of the surreal. It's not just the party leaders. From former prime ministers to potential chancellors, all can appear in ways that can surprise. Below are some little visual treats that I thought I'd share.
