Shoptalk

I’m not sure this site even has any regular readers anymore, but for the last month I’ve been getting hundreds of views per day and 99% of them are people searching variations of the phrase “keep calm and carry on,” which was the title of a post featuring a British WWII poster with that same text.  I have no idea now why so many people are searching or how they found me but I’m sort of amused because they’re probably pretty bewildered, just like all the people searching for variants of “men in showers,” because I wrote a post that featured a family-friendly pic of that and somehow the tag of the image or a passing textual reference turns up in search engines and a lot of people end up getting disappointed.  (And they get to read about the re-presentation of old amateur snapshot/vernacular photography as art.)
