Arcade girls in Creel, Mexico, shot by Adam Teale
I can’t remember any arcade in the U.S. or any other country I’ve visited looking as colorful as this.
“Pilgrim On A Forest Road: Into the Mist of Old Japan” by T. Enami (click for a larger version). Roguelike/Mystery Dungeon fans might see this and immediatly associate it with Shiren the Wanderer, but it’s actually a glass lantern slide shot some time around 1898. Notice the lack of a weasel on the traveller’s shoulder.
The Meiji-era photographer took two other photos of the pilgrim, which you can find in this Flickr set.

Perhaps some sort of real content to come later (if I can ever stop working on other projects), but for now, artifacts from the latest flickr crawl. The angle in user Anderson Costa’s photo would be compelling enough, but the side-by-side of the brick and the DS is what catches the eye. At least, when you’re me and you’re into such things, it does.
Doing a little Flickr-crawling tonight while avoiding all the things I should be working on, and this caught my eye. Such iconic images: the persevering charm of the NES gamepad and the iPod, side by side, completely different, and yet together serving as bookends for a generation. Best photo ever? No, but it does pack a punch.
