[Pics] Flickr Spotlight #1 – 15 Images Of Revolution Around The World
Hey everyone! My name is Noam (yeah, from The Stolen Scream) and I’m one of the latest addition to the Fstoppers team. Each week I’ll be bringing you some of the most interesting, amazing and unique photos from Flickr. If you have any theme suggestions, or even photos you think should be included in future stories – feel free to comment on the bottom, or write to me here – I will read each and every suggestion you have!
This week I decided to start by showing some of the most amazing revolution, protest and riot photos taken this year. As you all know 2011 was a year packed with protests: Egypt, Syria, Libya, Greece, Canada and the US are just a few examples, and social media outlets such as Flickr, Facebook and Twitter were used as tools of communication and for spreading the news around the globe. Some of the pictures posted on Flickr were used by newspapers and magazines, but I want to show you some of those photos that many of you may not have seen before. Lets begin!
