"32. Saskia" (the first set you linked to) sort of looks like a UFO crash.

I smell a movement. Takin' flip-flops from the beach house to the arthouse...

Oddly compelling.

And 'oddly compelling' is an oddly compelling phrase, now that I think of it.

My favorite.

The flamingos are nice. Someone planted 100 of these in my yard last year, with a sign saying I had to donate money to charity in order for them to be removed. I just left them there, thought they were nice.

At first glance I thought it was a flying life raft. Here is a link to the site...Flip Flop Flyin
Kind of fun at first glance. Check out the Saturday Morning cartoons ;)

Your shoes seem way too excited.... my shoes just want to sit back, enjoy the weekend, and read a good book.

I see someone is just as much a sucker for LOMO as I am.

That LOMO stuff looks like fun. It seems to be a community based on a particular brand of camera company? (I'd email you, but your address isn't on your profile.)

Great post, especially after all the news links lately. Also interesting to see people's native habitats, much like the mirror project.

Ever wondered what to call a Frenchman wearing sandals?

Phillipe Phillope.

This site makes me want to dig out my own flip flops and get snapping. If only I owned a pair of flip flops.

jaronson, the lomography about page gives a pretty good rundown on LOMO cameras

great site, but ewwww - why does a lomo camera have to become a lifestyle option? they were nice solid little cameras (i was going to add cheap, but i see 160 dollars). now they're objects that say something about you...

Be sure to visit the rest of flipflopflyin', there's some classic stuff there.

1. Why did it take delmoi a while to realise that a sight called "flip flop flying" featured photos of flying flip-flops ? Am I missing something ?

2. Why would one imply ( "but still cool" ) that something that takes one a longer time to comprehend is less cool ?
Is W. Bush very cool and Bill Clinton uncool ? Is addition cool and infinity uncool ? Are Hearsay cool and NIrvana uncool ?

[ BTW: I have just purchased the rights to the french sandal joke - no-one else may tell it, or they will be hearing from my lawyers ]
