I Beg Your Pardon?

Internet Harvesting. Isn't it an interesting phenomenon?

Take this for example. Buzz Feed has a post entitled "32 Inexplicable Photos From Russia." It seems what they did was just take a bunch of pictures from a Russian photographers livejournal page, with the bare minimum for attribution. These photos are in fact unique - but I think it is because this individual is a great photographer, not necessarily because Russia is so different, as the subtext of this post is and which you see clearly demonstrated in the comment section where rampant US-centric racism runs wild. People are weird all over this damn planet! It's the POV, and all this photographer did was do an amazing job at framing weird moments.

So that being said, click the link above to browse through a great photo set.

um. um. um. what?
