A number of wonderful photos and a few pieces of art thrown in for good measure in the 15th installation of Flickr Finds, Colossal’s bi-weekly roundup of photography. See previous Flickr Finds.
Here are nine of my favorite photos encountered (though not necessarily taken) on Flickr over the past two weeks, everything linked to its source. It was great to see a new piece from Dan Mountford after a bit of a hiatus. See previous Flickr Finds.
Here’s your bi-weekly roundup of great photography, it was almost impossible to winnow it down to just these few. All images linked to their sources. See previous Flickr Finds.

This is the first Flickr Finds of 2012 and it really is a great one. Lots of wonderful stuff that I encountered the past two weeks on my favorite photo sharing site. See past Flickr Finds.

When I was about eight years old my dad was working as a design director at a textbook publishing firm in Austin. One day he came home with a huge binder of photography under his arm, a collection of images from a photo shoot. He sat the binder on a table and I opened it to discover hundreds of photos featuring a trio of goofy circus clowns. I couldn’t understand why they needed to print the same photograph, over and over and over, 12 images per sheet. When I asked my dad about it he gave me a red grease pencil and told me the pictures weren’t identical and that I needed to identify where they were different and circle it. Sure enough in one picture a hand was posed differently, a balloon was moved slightly, a myriad of infinitesimal variations. We spent an hour going through a hundred photos until we decided on an image we both felt was the best and circled it in blue. It was a far cry from throwing a baseball around in the backyard or kicking his ass in Mario Bros. (though I did that too), but it was probably my first curatorial lesson, and one of the only times I got to help dad with his homework.
For those who have followed Colossal for the past year or so, you’ll know that I’ve started (and unceremoniously stopped) a number of regular themed posts after a few attempts. Flickr Finds has been different and I’ve received tons of feedback regarding each post from both visitors and photographers. It’s a task I look forward to every two weeks, and I hope you enjoy the 10th installment.
It’s that time again, a roundup of my favorite photos found on Flickr the last two weeks. See previous Flickr Finds.
