My photos of an Abandoned Diner in Northern Indiana have been featured in a “You’re The Man Now, Dog!” at ytmnd.com. I had never heard of a “You’re The Man Now, Dog!” and looked on the YTMND.com About Page, which quotes Wikipedia’s surprisingly interesting entry:
YTMND, an acronym for “You’re The Man Now, Dog!”, is a website community that centers around the creation of YTMNDs, which are pages featuring a juxtaposition of a single image, optionally animated or tiled, along with large zooming text and a looping sound file. YTMND is also the general term used to describe any such site.
(That’s not the interesting part, read the entry for information about the site’s past conflicts with the Church of Scientology, eBaum’s World, and others.)
The “You’re The Man Now, Dog!” with my photos on it can be found at http://abandoneddiner.ytmnd.com/. There is also a brief discussion of it.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I should feel about this. I was flattered that they used my photos, certainly, but initially, I was a little irked that nobody asked permission. However, they do reference my Abandoned Diner Photos Set on Flickr. I am going to take this as a compliment. It’s certainly not the coolest thing in the world, but I do think the music fits, or at least it fits the mood I was going for in the photos, which wasn’t sure I captured.
