I recalled a few of the Flickrazzi's who post the "how-to's" of their daily lives
. For example, 7-how-7
works for a production company that produces blow-up dolls for the
film and commercial industry (via BoingBoing
works as a mortician, rickenbacker
documents his life in fast food, and then there's a variety of active duty military folk who are documenting the mundane "over there", like ob1left
, At Ease
, Doc Torres
, enlisted cowboy
, and the homsar
. But if blogging at work can be bad, than I'm sure taking photos at work and sharing them with the interweb HAS to be worse.

CNN's Nuke Plant Photos Identical for Both Iran and N. Korea!
"Two stories posted in the last week on the CNN website, one on nukes in Iran last Wednesday, and another on nukes in North Korea on Saturday, both use the same aerial photograph of the same purported nuclear power plant!
But one is supposed to be in Iran and the other is supposed to be in North Korea!"

The great thing about Ofoto
and other photo printing sites is that you can instantly put up photos of an event for your friends to see and get prints made. But sometimes you accidentally leave them public. I give you: Lindsay Lohan's Thanksgiving

Imminent job openings at CNN...
Open the link and right click the picture of Bush and wife, click "Save Picture/Image" and look at the filename!
In the words of a certain Denis Leary, "He's an asshole, asshole, asshole-e-o-oe-oh".
I suggest someone mirrors this ASAP!

First launched during the week of no-metafilter, Flickr is a new kind of social software application (in the tradition of Friendster
) - but, after making friends and forming groups
, it actually gives you something to do! Created by a team led by Mefi's own sylloge
, Flickr is also a collaboration focused Flash-based application that allows you to share picture files with friends, comment on them and post them directly
to your weblog
. An exposed set of services
is also leading to a host of interesting ideas

They fixed my boo-boo. (warning - graphic pix)
Did you ever see this picture? It makes the email forwarding rounds ever so often, and is a fixture in the pro-life community. Taken in 1999, it shows a tiny hand touching the finger of one of the doctors involved in a spina bifida corrective operation. At the time, the fetus was 21 weeks old. Late last month, Samuel Armas (the boy the fetus became) testified briefly before a subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee examining scientific and medical advances in prenatal surgery.

You take a toy car, and hold it in such a way so that it looks like it's a real car parked between other real cars, or driving in traffic with real cars. Then you take a picture of it. That's the sublimely simple concept of Parking Spots

You've probably seen those photo mosaics
where a large image is made up of many smaller images acting as pixels. Kelly Houle has taken the idea a mile further by creating a photo collage that is also anamorphic
-- a collage of illustrations and related material from Alice in Wonderland that, when a curved mirror is placed in the correct position, forms a portrait of Lewis Carroll
. Absolutely amazing stuff.

on a Yahoo News photo of the former World Trade Center site. I wonder if this is some subtle hack or if it's just someone at Yahoo screwing around. The URL seems to be legitimate, but I can't find that photo with the same caption in Yahoo's regular photo rotation

In the long line of "take a picture of things" collaborative sites, we now have Snap Your Desk
, which takes a few design *cough*

So show us your crap-covered geek pit.

When pictures go bad...
I'm not trying to start another link of gratuitous Bush bashing, honest. But this picture of him is simply awful
. Are news organizations deliberately picking the worst pictures to show, or is Dubya naturally unphotogenic? Is this an extension of his public malapropisms and grammatical errors? Is the man just awkward in front of a crowd? And how will this affect his ability to be a good President?

The recent thread on genetic engineering
sent me on a path to find some astounding photos
. Ignore the ugly yellow background and just click on links to photos. Pages like this make me want to put more effort into my lepidopteran interests.

This reminded me of one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.
Once on vacation in Eastern Oregon, there was a total eclipse of the moon, just like this one. And some people nearby were taking photographs of it.
photographs. The round-trip time to the moon at the speed of light is 3 seconds and I wouldn't even want to calculate the attenuation caused by 320,000 miles of range.
Sometimes it seems as if some people are completely and totally clueless about what they're doing.
