These two blogs are listed as referrers on my Flickr account. They're both collections of found images. This is one of the ways people use Flickr too, as a place to collect or archive found images. This is what some of my favorite Flickr streams do. It's the internet equivalent of collecting magazine and newspaper images. But what intrigues me is the magnification/escalation/acceleration of the activity — and that it's visible. We're peeking in one another's photo albums and scrap books. We're looking through the photos, newspaper clippings, letters and porn each of us keeps stashed in a box under the bed.
