A Day In The World.

Might be worth a look. A bit like Flickr really with some really view-worthy images amongst the usual plethora of snapshots.

Keep scrolling down as more and more images appear.

Interesting Alan, as much as for what is not depicted as for what is. I didn't quite make it through the whole 100,000. Probably only a small percentage of that. But once you've seen one washing machine, you've seen them all.

I was mostly struck by the fact that the chap who painted the road didn't spell Merlot properly - the Philistine ;)

I remember seeing the stories on this before May 15th (the day chosen).  I think it was a great concept.

Some were interesting - like the guy playing trumpet at the funeral or the lady at her fathers bedside but far to many were dross and seemed to be taken just for the sake of it!

My sentiments exactly Irv.
How's the neg processing and printing coming on?

Having great fun with it all thanks Nick. The neg processing is pretty straight forward now but getting the contrast just right and the dodging and burning on the prints is a real struggle for me at the mo! >:(
