You can decide if this is a display of some weaknesses of tagging, or it could be conformist performance art. For the most part, I'm probably just objectifying toothpaste in an unhealthy way. This is more boring for me than it is for you.

These images used to be methodically captured, lovingly hand-tagged and uploaded daily (whenever possible). Now, I'm like a lot of other Flickr users who just upload vacation snaps.

None of these images have model releases. These images are not licensed though Creative Commons for a damn good reason.

    "Toothpastery has changed the way people look at toothpaste. The genie's out of the tube, and no amount of flossing will put it back in."
