I subscribe to the Flickr feed of photos with the tag “tiki” (Flickr is a popular photo service that lets you assign tags to your photos, and then lets you see all photos with that tag). About half of the photos are of people’s pets (why are there so many cats and dogs named Tiki?). The remaining images are a fun assortment of pictures of people’s collections, home tiki bars, road trips and nights out on the town — colorful stuff.
Today, the above photo showed up. It’s a fantastic, striking image, and I love it. I loved it even more when I realized, after giving it a moment of scrutiny, that the man at the left is my old Tiki-Ti drinking buddy, Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. The photo comes from the Flickr collection of his wife, Annene. Small world.
