Time flies. I started my tumblr site four years ago today. Man, I love Tumblr. I’ve found so many great sites there, been hipped to so many wonderful pictures.

Check it out if you’re into that sort of thing. Be aware, though, there are some images that are not suitable for the workplace.

Red Stockings. Cool shot by Fred Herzog, circa 1961.

It’s not winter but it’s not warm yet either. Which one of these things? Ah, spring.

This shot of the Lincoln Tunnel circa 1939 has such a vibe to it, doesn’t it?

One of the most dramatic changes in this blog over the past 5 years has been visual. I use far more images–drawings, paintings, photographs–than I did 10 years ago. I write less here at the Banter and show more pictures. Heck, I look at hundreds of images every day and post more than a handful regularly at my tumblr site (warning, it’s not generally safe for work). Through tumblr I’ve been hipped to hundreds of artists I wouldn’t otherwise know about. Thousands and thousands of pictures, man. It’s overwhelming but also beautiful.

Figure it’ll be fun to share some of the images, beyond the Art of the Day posts, with you. So: Picture this.
