Here at Gizmodo, we often find ourselves depending on stock photos to illustrate what our time and resources simply wouldn't allow. And by god do these noble stock photographers ever deliver.

No time to amputate the arms of a derelict, life-size doll and photograph it in your questionably defunct subway tunnel? That's alright—it's already been done for you.

Does your rascally canine friend refuse to sit patiently on your shoulders while you cower in a jacket and wield an ax? Dump the dog—the internet does it better.


We do it every day—now it's your turn. These stock photo websites are just rife with hidden gems, waiting to be exposed to the world in all their overly specific, bizarre, and often-arousing glory. Give us your best shot down below, and godspeed.
