Free Association ~

The Guardian on Flickr is a group administrator The Guardian on Flickr says:

This is an idea for a Thread that works something like this:-

I post a photo, then anyone posts one of their photos that reminds them in some way of the preceding image.

It could be subject matter, location, color, composition, theme, or any other association...

Comments (on the photos themselves) are welcome, and I will certainly be 'reviewing' as many of the images as I can.

For this to work you need to respond to the photo immediately preceding yours, as responding to photos further back in the Thread would break the continuity of free association.

Hey Ho, Let's Go!
