Striking! Photoshop-ed, he says, but I can tell you it just isn't so easy. Merging multiple exposures requires lots and lots of patience. Donald Agarrat's photoset, "Composites", look so natural. Attagaasam!

Elsewhere in Flickr: "Technique" | "Utterly Surreal" | "B&W" | pinhole shots as this | pinhole group.

People just dont stop with cams. Here are some cool images taken using scanners: portrait | fullbody | objects.

Flickr is a lovely place to hangout. What is in there that makes you return back...and again? Coz, "flickr is a MMORPG", observes an interface designer. More from him >

...Flickr is an example of what I think of as “vertebrate” or “narrative” or “trunk-and-branch” UI. In contrast to most web sites and apps which simply present a list of options (usually in a brutally straightforward way), flickr’s UI has a backbone. It presents a primary “plot” (upload photos and look at other people’s photos). This backbone gives users an immediate sense of the “story” of the site.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
