Today I stepped out of the office on my bicycle to run a few errands. I returned a couple hours later to find a display’s worth of IMs, a number of emails in my GMAIL inbox and a couple sent to my work address – and they all had to do with THIS.
“Is this you?” “You seen this?” “Remember that afternoon?”
To which I replied, It is. I hadn’t. I do – god I miss those lunches.
At first I thought the site had to have been made by a friend. It felt like it. Super good idea. Super clean design. A few particulars came to mind.
Turns out it wasn’t made by anyone I know. Just a good designer with a good idea and an aptitude for sifting through flickr for good swipe material. Proud as a parent.
And you know what? It’s funny. And it makes sense. I mean, considering the number of images I carelessly pilfer for my own creative ends – coupled with the number of images out there of ALL OF US – the odds of my sleepy mug popping up in someone’s project/comp/whatever isn’t anything to bet against.
