Today’s ‘List Friday’. And today I’m indecisive. Two lists vie for inclusion. Only one will become today’s list. The other’s destined for oblivion. The first one – ‘50 things I learned at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2011’  – is an interesting list. But I’m not a foodie. And the Festival ended 11 days ago. So the list’s passé. Also a bit elitist. The second one’s quirkier. Not event centred. Not celebrity driven. Not spin doctored. And definitely not ephemeral. It’s ‘91 common objects as you’ve never seen them before’ . Published by gizmodo, all 91 images were sent in by its readers. Why 91? I’ve no idea. The blurb says they’re all ‘everyday objects’. But one (pictured) is of a jet engine where the turbine’s bolted to the afterburner tail pipe. Everyday? I don’t think so. Anyway all the images are fascinating. They highlight the creativity that’s out there. And how art can be created with a good eye and a digital camera. These images are best viewed by scrolling through them, in these two sub-galleries [3, 4]. A favourite. I don’t have one. Do you?
P.S. Today’s list’s a bit of sequel to the Friday list last 5 November. Also from gizmodo, that one was ‘45 photos from clever, sometimes unbelievable, perspectives’ . I don’t know why these images draw me in. But they sure do.
