"Families are on the move today, leaving their homes in the outlying areas of Gaza and into shelters and relatives’ homes closer to the center of Gaza. You can see carts pulled by donkeys carrying whole families; from small children to grandparents."

The lighter side of life in Los Angeles
Photographer Mel Melcon has long been attracted to some of the stranger sites L.A. offers, and as you can see, the city offers plenty of opportunities for bizarre scenes.
As for the spectacular arrest of the amazing Spider-Man above, Melcon recounts the scene:
As they were about to put the handcuffs on the man, one of the officers grabbed my arm and stopped me from taking photos. I guess he thought it would be bad public relations if I caught them in the act of arresting a superhero.
Look through some more photographic oddities over at Framework.
