Here are eight cool photos readers added to The Consumerist Flickr Pool this week, picked for neatness and usability in a Consumerist post, and one silly one I just want you to see. Also, be sure to check out our new Photo Gallery to see the latest additions all week long!

Our Flickr Pool is the place where Consumerist readers go and upload photos for possible use in future Consumerist posts. Just be a registered Flickr user, go here, and click “Join Group?” up on the top right, and start hitting “send to group” on your individual photos you want to add to the pool.

Note that if you want them to have a shot at ending up on the Consumerist Friday post, you’ll need to open up your sharing settings on your Flickr account so we can grab the HTML from the “Share This” tab. Sorry, but that’s the only way to get Flickr and Consumerist to play with each other.

Add your shots to The Consumerist Flickr Pool, and perhaps they’ll get featured in a future story, or even highlighted in a Friday Consumerist Flickr Pool Finds post. See previous winners of the Friday Consumerist Flickr Pool finds here.

    What. the. hell. Why is that guy shooting that cat?????

    • segfault, registered cat offender says:

      Cats are evil… It’s been a running theme on Consumerist for a while now, and it’s why they feature so many stories with cat pictures in the caption. The cat is a metaphor for the evil wrongdoer corporation.

    • MaytagRepairman says:

      The cat is the one that keeps leaving the garage door open.

    I dig the old trucks, I am jealous of the dog living someplace so warm and snow-free, and did anyone know that “Surprised Kitten” has an orange brother? (or sister, I can’t tell, they photoshop’d out the cat junk)

  3. kaceetheconsumer says:

    The second last one is really cool. The effect makes it look like a dollhouse, but then the real person walking through contradicts that, so my brain kinda hurts.

    And OMG stick-em-up kitty!

    I want the truck, gimme the truck, gotta have the truck, kill for the truck….

    • KatieKate93 says:

      If you’re anywhere near Stockbridge, MA, check out the Main Street at Christmas re-creation they do every December. They have people come with their old show cars and park up and down Main Street so that it looks like the old Normal Rockwell painting. It’s great fun if you’re into photography, and maybe, just maybe, you can try to strike a bargain with the owner of the truck ;-)

    Someone please add a S on the flying surprised dog. And the trucks are awesome.
