It's not often I give a whole post to a single blog, but I just found this one and it's so magical that I don't want to wait to share (besides which, I'm not sure what I'd group it with). It's called Things Look Like Things
, with the tagline Blogs and photos as fable, fairytale, fiction and fact.
It's a sort of photoblog of Flickr selections showing not just simple resemblances, but also poetic transmutations and dreamy narratives, with titles like "What a Bat Might Dream" and "The Planting and Harvesting of Cupcakes". (It turns out that quite a lot of things look like cupcakes.)
I almost wish I hadn't scrolled down to the bottom of the page to the older posts that include text, because the newer ones fare much better without it -- the caption and a sequence of images are all that is needed for these miniature epics.
Shown below are two of the shorter series, "Sometimes We Rise" and "Blue Eyes".
