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

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:

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 (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.
