You're so vain, you probably think this pic is about you, don't you

Day 122 of 365: No, this picture isn't about you, or anyone on flickr. You're not that important. There are a lot of things in life that piss me off, and none of them have anything to do with something as insignificant as an online community on a photo sharing site. Intolerance pisses me off. Injustice gets my blood boiling. Closed mindedness is a cancer on society. Pettiness ticks me off, especially coming from adults.

 

All of these things exist on flickr as well, because it's a small slice of the larger population, but it means nothing, because all you have to do is get out of your chair and it disappears. I sometimes feel people forget about that and take things that happen here way too personal. I love my contacts on flickr because I respect their work and they inspire me, and they just seem like good people on top of it. I like people that care about the big picture and use flickr as a platform to make people think (hello Joel). I also like total goofballs who leave witty comments (you know who you are). But most of all, I like people who do good work. What I don't like are douchebags, but I like to handle it the same way I do in real life: just get out of their way. I've done a bit of a poor job at this lately, so this picture is mainly for me to serve as a reminder to stay classy. Fuck, this ain't classy at all. Ok, starting tomorrow then.
