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 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!
