flickr Friday: Pumpkin Fields Forever

flickr_pumpkinfield.jpgLet's take a moment to reflect on the life of a pumpkin. Early in life, pumpkins enjoy a naive bliss, sunning themselves in the fields with the bugs and the leaves, just hanging out, being orange, round and cute. It's our favorite crop to see growing from the side of the road. Then the upheaval. Yanked into trucks, tossed into piles, manhandled by discerning grownups and clumsy toddlers, then mutilated with knives, paint and fire. It is a spooky time of year folks, and no one knows it more than the pumpkins. Taken with a Sony DSC-H1. You can see more work from cindy47452 at Flickr.

flickr Friday: Autumn in Ireland

flickr_irelandautumn.jpgThis photo is enchanting and gives us pause. While we knew Ireland was green, we didn't realize it was autumnal. Taken with a Canon EOS 350D. You can see more work from Edward Dullard at Flickr.

flickr Friday: First Frost

flickr_firstfrost.jpgOkay, maybe the first frost isn't here yet, but it's lurking. An early frost sure does make for beautiful imagery, like this crystallized rose blossom. Taken with a Nikon D2X. You can see more work from mick y at Flickr.

flickr Friday: America's Next Top Frog!

flickr_nexttopfrog.jpgWho knew how good frogs look on blooming sedum? Well. If you kissed this frog it would stay just the way it is. This is a pacific tree frog, captured a year ago with a Konica Minolta MAXXUM. You can see more work from Minette Layne at Flickr.

flickr Friday: Sloth Binge

flickr_sloth1.jpgOkay, we're kind of into sloths here at PictureSnob. So let's let one shine today! This is a little guy found in a tree in the Amazon. Big claws! But the photographer says he easily domesticated him. Maybe they should start making toupees out of sloth hair, it looks convincing. All shot with a Canon PowerShot. You can see more work from Praziquantel at Flickr. And you can learn more about sloths here.

The Crow for MTV HD: Possibly the Best Animation Ever

Now our Flickr Friday shot reminded us of one of our favorite videos ever. The Crow, made to launch MTV HD a few years ago. Besides the amazing, flowing graphics and glorious negative space, the idea of using a black and white animation to announce HD gave us a whole new respect for MTV.

flickr Friday: Crows in a Row

flickr_crowsinarow.jpgCrows. The unconsidered bird. These crows are lining up for food, apparently. We love the dark heft of this shot... the blackness of the crows, in an unusual moment of stillness. Though we're sure these birds are making a racket. You can see more work from BugMan50 at Flickr.

flickr Friday: The Golden Tiger

flickr_goldentiger.jpgIf you haven't spent time looking at photos of tigers, you should. They are really amazing creatures... beautiful and terrible at once. Here we have a male golden tiger walking about at his zoo home. Shot was taken with a Nikon D300--a tiger among DSLRs, if we may say so. You can see more work from Tambako the Jaguar at Flickr.

flickr Friday: Baby Carolina Wrens

flickr_carolinawrens.jpgNothing like skinny baby birdies to start off a Friday. These Carolina wrens look hungry! Taken with a Canon PowerShot S3 IS--always a great choice for a point-and-shoot when you're not quite ready to deal with a DSLR. You can see more work from Vicki's Nature at Flickr.
