a single place can be bottomless
Last week, Flickr photographer ejmachad posted three luminous photos of Gapstow Bridge. There are two versions of each, identical as far as I can tell. We have over 2,700 photographs now tagged with "gatesmemory." Many are new uploads, and many are photographs that were already on Flickr before we announced the project. For the latter, some simply added the new tag to all their Gates-related photos. Others made a selection. Already, people are thinking as curators, as editors - it's interesting to see how the project added another layer to the Flickr system. ejmachad only uploaded these photos of Gapstow Bridge. He/she may have taken dozens or hundreds of other Gates photographs, in as many other locations in the park, but something clearly came together here. There's a nice feeling of having settled into one place, drawing on its full depth.
