#  Amazing Snowflake Pictures →

December 3rd, 2013 at 18:20 // In Worth Seeing 

It’s snowing here today, so it feels appropriate to link to these amazing photographs. I don’t really have anything to add to Jason Kottke’s post, where I discovered them:

Alexey Kljatov takes amazing photographs of snowflakes. Infinite beautiful variation. The large versions are worth checking out.

On second thought, one thing to add: here’s the link straight to the fullscreen slideshow. It makes a quick and beautiful pseudo-screensaver. Throw on some seasonal music, put that up on a screen and you’ve got a quick holiday party.

#  Where Signs Are Born →

December 21st, 2008 at 21:25 // In Worth Seeing 

Until I saw this Flickr set of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s sign shop, I’d never stopped to think about where exactly those road signs come from.

Also, the Washington State Department of Transportation has a Flickr account?

Everyone and their brother have linked to this by now, but I still can’t resist.

#  My Day Yesterday →

November 1st, 2008 at 16:12 // In Worth Distraction 

This pool has been around for a while, but it wasn’t until today that I spent over an hour watching them. A worthy distraction.

#  Multicolr →

Gems Sty points to a very cool way to browse Flickr photos: by color. It even lets you do many colors at once.

#  Community Building →

September 30th, 2008 at 20:01 // In Worth Reading 

Many people have linked to this article on Flickr’s Director of Community and I didn’t get why. Then I read it. It’s pretty interesting.

#  It Eats Itself →

August 26th, 2008 at 20:01 // In Worth Distraction 

There’s something about this “Anthropomorphic Cannabalism” Flickr set that’s undeniably good.

#  Daniel Fell’s Photography →

July 18th, 2008 at 12:17 // In Worth Seeing 

Via the Big Contrarian, some excellent and arty photos. (Which seem to me out of place on Flickr.)

#  Ice Cold Beer →

June 16th, 2008 at 17:55 // In Worth Seeing 

I have no idea how this picture was made, but it looks really really awesome. That is all.

File this one under “surprisingly compelling.” May I recommend the slideshow?

Your daily dose of “crazy/awesome” comes via Buzzfeed:

Instructions: stand still in front of a camera. 3…2…1…SHAKE YOUR FACE! Now take a picture! Icky meme or awesome party game? Your call.

Also from Buzzfeed, the charming photos of Fencing for Old People.

These pictures are pretty awesome. Perhaps best as a slideshow.

Calling to mind another recent example of surrealism: The Day with No News.

#  Sorry I Missed Your Party →

May 6th, 2008 at 14:00 // In Worth Distraction 

A surprisingly entertaining selections of photos from parties that the blog’s author did not attend. This one’s been getting a lot of attention.

#  Swing Jumping →

May 5th, 2008 at 11:53 // In Worth Seeing 

Though not all the photos in the “Swing Jumping” Flickr pool show people jumping off swings, they’re all undeniable awesome.

What happens when you use an album cover for your face.

#  Butchering A Pig →

April 16th, 2008 at 11:03 // In Worth Seeing 

Interesting series of photos showing, well, just that. And though this doesn’t include the most graphic parts of a slaughter, I’m sure some will still find it off-putting.

This completely pointless (and if memory serves, illegal), but I found Spock Lincoln rather amusing. Click the title for more.
