Given today’s occasion I typed ’51’ in my Flickr collection and up came a long list of images, that seems wholly arbitrary to me. For most I can’t even see why it would be a result of this search term. I selected some to post here, where collated they may seem to have meaning. What else is our role as sentient beings than to ascribe meaning to the things we observe?
