Obscura Day Gets Curious


Previously in ain’t-it-cool news, we told you about Obscura Day, where people across the globe were invited to join the “international celebration of curious places” sponsored by Atlas Obscura, a guide to the world’s wonders, curiosities, and esoterica. On March 20, participants tagged pictures uploaded to Flickr with #obscuraday to aggregate their discoveries. The pictures are plentiful and the time-wasting possibilities limitless. We’ve rounded up a few key picks for your viewing pleasure, after the jump.
