Sometimes airports are more interesting than the places you visit. Inside an airport there’s a micro-city of activity. People rushing for a flight, people feasting on overpriced bar food, people hunting for the perfect souvenir. Not all cities have that.
Web designer and blogger Dan Dinu recently detected a job ad for Flickr, cleverly hidden in the source code of their website homepage. It’s expertly tailored for those who know their code.
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.
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.
We have a fondness for people who hang out with themselves (Japanese artist Fumiko Imano is one). 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.

I found this young photographer from Melbourne on Flickr. Michelle Dylan Huynh is only 19 but takes amazing portraits. There is always a softness to them, but also a raw quality.

Here are some interesting images from Eric Fischer’s Locals and Tourists Flickr set that use geotagging to figure out which parts of various cities are photographed mainly by locals and which ones are photographed mainly by tourists. The red points represent tourist photographs, the blue points represent pictures taken by locals, and the yellow points […]

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.
Photographer Troy Paiva takes beautiful, long-exposure night shots of desolate, American landscapes. Check out his Flickr gallery and a his new book, Night Visions: the Art of Urban Exploration.
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.
