Flickr Face

I saw these holes in a wall at Fort Lytton and they reminded me of the default flickr buddy icon.

Taken during the Brisbanites December 2006 Meetup at Ft Lytton.

    My wife is obsessed with taking pictures of faces that she sees in buildings and nature. I've even seen flickr members who completely devote themselves to this art. Weird!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Alison ;-) Saw it there, had to shoot it.

    I'm definitely not that obsessive Mark, but this struck me as way too close to the default flickr buddy icon to not shoot :-)

    I love it David!

    A good day by the looks of the photos.

    Yep, apart from the somewhat hurried departure (the rangers wanted to leave), and subsequent lack of plan (so I ended up going over the Gateway and getting separated from everyone), but yeah, a good interesting and enjoyable afternoon. And only two Nikons there (Pam's D80 and Nikhi's Nikomat) the remainder were Canons or Kodaks.

    Hahaha...nice find! (o^.^o)

    I used to have the same obsession as Mark's wife, but I used to draw them instead. :o)

    hehehe So you were a bit of a graffiti artist then Margot ?

    Very well spotted. Flickr knows no bounds.

    You should one day use it as your buddy icon. See if anyone picks up on it. Mind you, I like your current icon -- not just because I took it, but the rich red makes it stand out a mile away.

    Yeah I thought of doing that, but at the time had my blue one that I'd only recently taken, and I like the bold red of the current one too.
