Let's have some phun (part 1)

A few years ago I (and probably others) coined the term "pharts" to describe photo art. Such pharts would include abstracts, obvious HDRs, manipulated images, out of frames, etc. where the image is not straight-forward. This term (with its unfortunate sound) would exclude photos of artistic merit due to subject, lighting, composition, etc., which are essentially unaltered.

Below are 5 examples of my pharts.
Jelly beans

Rusty chain

Gum drops

Guggenheim NYC

hibiscus

I have coined the term "phunnies" to mean photos that are funny or at least contain a humorous element or character. I show some examples below.
