We hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend. Washington, DC may be full of tourist at the moment but somehow it hasn’t ruined the perfect weather that we’ve had these past two days. It has put us in such a great mood we thought we’d share with you some totally kickass photos from our Flickr group, Petty Thieves.

It’s over now and I’m a little tired

For those that may be new to Empty Stretch, we just wanted to let you know about our Flickr group – Petty Thieves. It’s really our first curating attempt and a lot of the work that gets submitted to us blows us away. I think the best part about it though is the narratives that a person can form from the wide range of photos we’ve collected. I picked just five for today, but we hope to make these little sequences a more common occurrence on our blog. I call this one, It’s over now and I’m a little tired.

We’d love to have you take part in the fun as well. Feel free to join the group, and send us some of your best pictures. We’re really not looking for a certain style or anything, just whatever you think is your best and we’ll most likely agree. Also, besides getting in a possible feature like this one, we use this group for the curating of our book series, Petty Thieves (an awesome book that will be coming to you once we get TWENTY/12 printed!).
