So I’m working on this design job (or, at least, I’m supposed to be working on a design job — right now, I’m posting something to my blog, which means I am decidedly not working on a design job) and I’m looking for some stock photography for an elusive concept. So far I’ve searched Veer for “path forward,” “path,” “prescribe,” and “balance.”

Searching for “balance” yielded, predictably, a lot of photos of yoga

photos of people walking on ersatz balance beams

photos of people with things on their heads

and this:

Hello? What does this mean?

    one slot on each side, maybe?

  • Laurie says:

    very possible. but wouldn’t that have been an overhead shot, thus exhibiting said balance?

    First of all, I’m never a more productive blogger than when I’m up against a huge work deadline.

    Secondly, I love seeing what I’ll get when I photo search, Veer, Getty, Corbis, Jupiter, etc. Why is it that when I search for the word, um, toothpaste, I get questionable almost porn. And when I search umbrella, I get, um questionable almost porn. I wonder what I’ll get if I search toaster.
