ISS taken with a fish-eye lens in a town square?
You're on the right track.

I've blurred out your suggestion so it doesn't give a clue that might ruin the mystery for anyone else.

Oh, thanks. I didn't think about adding the spoiler to my answer.

What do you think they're playing air-guitar to?

We all had fun a few years ago 'doing' the Lovecraftian-style 'the more you look the weirder it gets' puzzle that was going around (I've recently discovered that it is called 'Blue Plate Special' by Jeff Lee Johnson). For those who missed it, here it is:

Well, here's a new one to play with. The Grand International Hotel:

Be sporting, one 'observation' per post. Number them so we don't repeat.

1) Giant spider on the ceiling above the reception desk pigeon-holes.

Two newer images have appeared since.

Who wants to play?

Not sure what’s going on. Are these supposed to be Lovecraft story titles?

These are just describing what’s in the pictures. Aren’t they supposed to represent something?

No, they're not supposed to convey any hidden specific interpretation (e.g., a title or a person). Jeff Lee Johnson is most comfortable with horror illustration, and these (his Dark Reflections series) are akin to the "what's wrong with this picture" graphical puzzles.
