The good thing about humans and the Internet is that there are always those individuals who are willing to collect the cream of the crop, so you don’t have to. Here is another example of brilliantly random finds from across Flickr that would no doubt cost many wasted man-hours to find by oneself.

Ridiculously fun people who heart… oops, we mean head the Pentax 6×7

Haha, what fun. Flickr user Kiyoshimachine’s love for the cute little Pentax 6×7 camera got to his head literally, as he took to snapping some pretty merry portrait shots of people donning a gigantic Pentax 6×7 on their shoulders. Their faces peer out in the most hilarious way.

Pictures of people hanging out with themselves

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 28 September 2012

So you can imagine how exciting it was for us to stumble upon a photography group on Flickr where members chip in with pictures of themselves hanging out with their cloned versions in predominantly banal, everyday situations.

Michelle Dylan Huynh

Contributions Reader Find

By Mai in New Photography on Wednesday 4 May 2011

Infinite Comic

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Design on Wednesday 10 June 2009

Infinite Comic takes random Flickr images and pairs them with random Twitter tweets to create a comic. Users can type in search terms to look for related images and tweets for a more custom comic, but the results are still absurd and amusingly non-sensical.

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Trends on Tuesday 10 June 2008

Long before the franchise destroyed our fond childhood memories like Aunt and Uncle Beru on Tatooine, many of us born in the 70s were proud to own the many products associated with the Star Wars movies.
