Flickr keeps exploring itself – see, for instance, Andrew Losowsky’s series of photos of doorbells in Florence, each of which is being posted with a short fiction. Andrew writes about it in his blog, of course, and calls the genre flicktion. There’s only one photo not by Andrew tagged as flicktion so far, but it’s a lovely little story, about how a saddlebag got into a second hand store.

I like the idea of using your camera to capture strange writing exercises. I like how playful Flickr makes people. (via Foe)
