The Squirrel Queen Of Soul’s Inauguration Hat

In case you didn’t notice on Tuesday, somebody wore a fancy hat to sing at the Obama inauguration on Tuesday.

Since then, it seems everyone wants to copy the Queen of Soul’s look.

There’s a whole Flickr group called Aretha Franklin’s Hat set up so folks can show off their big chapeaus.

However, with all these big bows attached cockeyed on the side of heads, did anyone else think of this?

Squirrel Queen Flickr Meme

I saw this over at Jane Q. Public‘s home and was just curious about doing it for myself.

It’s a Flickr meme. Instead of just typing out your answer on your blog, you head to Flickr and type it into their Flickr’s search box. Once the results pop up, you use only the images that appear on the first page, choose your favorite and copy and paste each of the URLs into the Mosaic Maker (3 columns, 4 rows)… Enjoy!

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you attend?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What do you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One word to describe you?
12. Your Flickr name?

Here are my answers:

1. Stephanie

2. Crab pasta (but I like mine with alfredo)

3. South Fulton

4. Green

5. Nicole Kidman

6. Beer

7. Machu Picchu

8. Cheese Cake (but I like most all desserts)

9. Mature (because I so often feel immature)

10. Comfort

11. Mellow

12. Squirrel Queen

Holly and Heartbreaktown have also done Flickr memes, but they’ve been a bit more mysterious about their answers.

Classics Revisited Lego Style

British photographer Mike Stimpson has focused his eyes and his lens on recreating classic photographs with Lego characters subbing for the humans in the familiar shots.

He’s got a set of such pics on his Flickr site and they’re well worth taking a few minutes to check out.

Here’s one example of his work below. It’s the famous VJ day kiss with the sailor planting a big one on a young woman in Times Square.

Lots of the snaps he’s recreated are from very political moments of time captured by photographers.
