To Love Is to Return, A Guy Next to an Alpaca and Other Great Photos

11

While browsing through my liked photos I rediscovered some gems: a guy next to an alpaca, Batman in Sydney, a girl playing the tuba, flying dogs, lens flares, a boy that looks like Richie Tenenbaum, skateboards, blurs, beaches all around the world and much more.

Over the years I’ve made many galleries for the magazine – usually my approach is to make database queries; like: most liked photos in December by people from Japan, look at the results and create a gallery. Not this time – but let’s start with the gallery itself:

Credits: filby, porkchopsandy, renaishashin, mephisto19, dhuffone, anarchy, daitita, tallgrrlrocks, susielomovitz, hughh, upstair-studios, ccwu, elcena, scorpie, kernow_and_cambria, mightymouse, snoop, eloisee, satomi, lazybuddha, atria007, falsedigital, bravebird, crayfish, rake, ne_fryakai, katja, panteliskosmas, yarnlass, stouf, permafrost, earlybird, i_am_four-eyes, superlighter, ilovemydiana, jeansman, vicuna, rater, alexandrak, adbigmilk, lovertad, boredbone, shanti929, specialblewah, emdewe, paramir, miriel, joncherry, pussylove, blackkiwi, drudolph, frauspatzi, chapoteo, adamscott, klickovic, rikkib, lomographics, sjenkins, gordie, bccbarbosa, sabrina2611, jennson, ullilomo & tiano

This time I looked at my likes. So this is a totally subjective selection – it’s not about showing the best photos. It’s about rediscovering. While browsing through my likes I had to think of Robin Sloan's tab essay Fish. It’s about the difference between liking something on the internet and loving something on the internet – his conclusion is: to love is to return.

The gallery above is about that: I returned to my liked photos. You can do so as well, go to your home and click on likes – for example my likes can be found at www.lomography.com/homes/recurving/likes (just replace recurving with your username). Put the link to the rediscovered photos in the comments, I’d be very interested to see them!

    Nice group of photos. I see why you like them. One that caught my eye was the scene through the rain on the window.
