I've been racking my brain, trying to come up with another theme for a feature I could use to promote the work of the Photographers Of Etsy Team. I think I've come up with a winner, and as you've undoubtedly already surmised, I call it "Tagline Roulette".
The concept is rather simple; I gather a list of "tag words" from ideas submitted via convo or by blog comments on the current blog edition. From that list, one word is randomly selected to be the tag word I use to search for images to populate the next edition of the blog feature.
This being the first edition, and since it's my blog and I can do whatever the heck I want to, I not so randomly selected the word "spring" as my inaugural "Tag Word". If you see a listing that may not seem to "fit" with the others, keep in mind that each listing has at least one thing in common with the others; they share the same "tag word".
If you're at all familiar with my other regular feature, "The View From The Big End", you may have noticed that I usually limit the number of featured images to 10. Again, this being the first edition, and since it's my blog and I can do whatever the heck I want to, I went a little nuts on the number of featured images. I can't promise to go quite so crazy in future editions, so let's just celebrate this one for what it is, an über-collection of some fantastic work.
