OPINION | Source Unknown
Another day and another commentary about the internet and its content. If you have ever spend time on the pages of Tumblr, you'll know exactly what I mean when I say that sometimes I become desperately frustrated when finding something amazing with no credits. Not to mention the hours of useless googling to (not)find the makers of these pictures...
I have develped a love hate relationship with Tumblr, which is on one hand a medium that works fantastically well to spread images but loses all the information in the process. Where most pictures come from is pretty obvious; a Celine lookbook or a Swedish blogger. But usually the most interesting ones are harder to retrieve, like this block building or photo of crinkled plastic.
Update: thanks to a helpful anonymous, Laura and Petra the images found their source.
