Popular photos

In the past week, seven Flickr people have added this photo of mine as a favorite. It's a pretty straightforward perp walk of a woman I wrote a lot about in Virginia. You see, it's the perfect type of photo for Flickr hoarding as exemplified here by CuffGirls' favorite photos (NSFW, sorta, but they're only thumbnails when you first click).

It's not the first time I've been amused by Flickr's social manners. I got picked up by a couple snowplow groups during the late 2009 blizzard. The best, of course, was when my photo of myself throwing a frisbee at Katie in the pool got picked up by a collection of photos of girls on inflatable rafts.

More importantly, Errol Morris has his new photography book out now. NYT review here.

Damnit. Leave it to me to miss the fact that the Book Review cover was for that Errol Morris book. Times like these I kick myself for skipping that section of the paper altogether.

My most-viewed, most-liked, most-loved photo on flickr is a woman in a blind fold. It didn't occur to me the possible fetishistic way of looking at the photo until the response started.

The Morris book looks good.
