Sharing your silhouettes

We asked you to share your silhouette photography in our gallery last week, and many of you had plenty of shots to share. In appreciation of those who participated, here’s a photography selection from them.

For the love of bread

Here on Flickr, we have a whole lot of foodies — heck, who doesn’t like food. We’d like to celebrate all the wonderful photos of what we all eat on our blog. And for today, let’s explore those delectable breads and the bakers that make them.

Mono Monday: BB Bluesman’s streets

Check out Mark Forman’s candid portraits and street scenes from Taiwan, where the Brooklyn-born photographer has lived for more than 20 years. “I think the street came to me because it seemed honest and organic.”

Photos that make you feel like a teenager again

Vanessa Hollander and Wilson Philippe are Wiissa, a young film-and-photography duo and real-life couple who turned their hobby into a career. Their colorful and dreamy ‘60s- and ‘70s-inspired photography creates a nostalgic feel, and Vanessa says, “A lot of people tell us when they look at our photos that kind of makes them feel like they’re a teenager again.”

Photographer Spotlight: Conor MacNeill

Conor MacNeill quit his day job to become a full-time photographer only three years after picking up a cheap DSLR for the first time. The Irish photographer fell so deeply in love with his craft that he was willing to risk the stability of the rat race to pursue his dream. We’re happy to share his story with you in this Photographer Spotlight.

FlickrFriday: Surprise!

Surprise! it’s Friday and this is our #FlickrFriday Theme. We want you to surprise us with surprising shots. Interpret whatever this theme means to you: it could be the astonishment in the face of your friend when it’s her/his birthday surprise; it could be the reaction to an unexpected punchline to a joke; it could even be your expression of surprise when hearing good news!
