Always fans of art inspiring more art, we just got a call for submissions from Some Ways to Disappear (what a fantastic name for a literary journal) and for this upcoming issue, they are asking writers to look at their Flickr Pool of photos for inspiration, and inspire they do. A fantastic collection of photos such this one should not go unbrowsed, even if you're not planning to submit. Delicious.
