    Photo opps

    I've mentioned before that Tim and I occasionally play a fun lil' search engine game pulling up images as a result of goofy search queries (like "figure 1b" and "exhibit 10c"). Some of our results have ended up in the Moment of Zen section.

    Now I'm on to something else. For no good reason, I'm collecting stock photography. No particular themes, but all are photographs (not cartoons, clipart, etc) and all are black & white. When I think of it, I jump on to the various stock image sites like Corbis, Veer, iStockPhoto, and so forth. I'll plug in random search words like "marzipan," "irreverent," and "galvanized" to see what happens. That's not normal, is it?

    Anyway, I do this thinking I'll eventually find good use for some of these great photos -- like fun web design projects down the road. Right now, though, I have no particular use except to share some with you.
