Thanks to 37signals for blogging this.
This is one of those oddly novel experiences that I just love. Seeing a world in a totally different way then I'm used to. Black and white pictures do look lovely and rustic and interesting but color seems to have a way of bringing it all out into stark reality. Interestingly often times I was struck by the lack of color in the pictures.
Anyhow all this colorful goodness is due to the Library of Congress giving the internet some love with a Flicker account. Yay for the sharing of information! And pictures!
