Only on flickr...
In my inbox, an invitation to join the 'Pool of Garbage'.
["pools" on flickr refer to groups who collect and contribute photos on a particular theme to the group pool.]
I do belong to a number of rubbish and garbage groups on flickr.
Some of them are quite specific - "Rubbish in the river", "I hate shopping trolleys".
Here is a selection of my "rubbish" photos:
I add pictures to these pools, but don't often go there to browse, its rather depressing.
Possibly the most bizarre group or pool invitation I've ever had on flickr is an invitation for this photo:
invited to be part of the "tea tags" group.
I kid you not.
Its an indication of the weirdness of the world of flickr that I didn't think "how amazing! theres a tea tag group, who would have thought it!".
No, I thought "where's my head? should have thought to look for the tea tags group."
Maybe its also an indication of something or other that I found the existence of such a group somehow strangely heartening....
