Online Vice: Photo Browsing

Looking at photographs online is a huge time suck for me. Once I start looking at the flickr Explore – 7 Days Interesting I’m lost for an hour or more. I could flip through the pages endlessly. I recognize that 95 percent of the pictures on there are rubbish, but every once-in-a-while I’ll find a good one worth favoriting.

Right now, I’m finding the photos on The One’s We Love similarly addicting.

The Ones We Love is a project highlighting young and talented photographers from around the world. Each artist contributed six photographs of the person(s) who is most important to them, taken outdoors in a natural setting. The goal of the website is to portray the people who are loved, cherished, and inspirational to these artists, and also showcase the differences and similarities in the photographs each of them took within the same guidelines.

Meme: 5 Sites

Five sites I visit everyday are:

1. Google Homepage, which has my rss reader, calendar, and todo list on it.

2. Popurls.com, but only the top three columns, which are the top Digg stories, the top del.icio.us stories, and the top Reddit stories.

3. Oneword.com, which prompts you with a new word each day and gives you sixty seconds to write about it.

4. Flickr.com to look at the most interesting pictures of the last seven days. I can flip through these endlessly. Fun images.

5. Twitter.com, lately. It’s kindof addicting.
