Amazed at The Power of The Spectacle...

This photo is from Flickr by katenadine (Kate Nadine?) and has the most enormous number of comments.  I haven’t been on Flickr that much so I don’t know how many comments a picture usually solicits but this seemed to amaze even the photographer/model!  I counted 101 comments.

She (katenadine) had captioned the picture… “I ended up having to do my 365 at work, and I was cursing myself until one of our bar men was goofing around in his friend’s glasses. I stole them, ran to the bathroom, and snapped away for a couple of minutes, very scared that a customer would walk in at any moment and see … well, this.  I need these. They rock. And I swear I never knew how to pout until I put the Magic Glasses on.”

Comment were on the eyes, the quality of the photo (what Flickr is all about), the pout and the librarian look.  I haven’t commented on librarians~spectacles since October, so it’s good to be reminded of that perennial image conundrum!

And this is a great picture – thanks!
