The Joys of Flickr

Posted on March 31, 2011 at 3:20 PM

Dear Diary,

Ah, the joys of Flickr. I mean, Flickr, the home of the world's most democratic collection of digitally reproduced photographs.  I, too, have listed mine there, although many are of no passing interest professionally, garnered in one place for family and close friends.  However, contact with http://www.flickr.com is an experience for both those who are members and those who are not.  Search for any location, subject, topic, theme or location you have an interest in, and see many hundreds of photographs, taken by both professional and amateur photographers.

At Flickr, "favorite" is a verb.  If you are "exploring" and you "favorite" a photo, you can go back to it, either individually or as part of a set of photos you have saved under your name/identity.  Here's my latest group of favorites, which I just ran through and can safely say: I love them all, absolutely love them:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/askeratelier/favorites/show/

As for my own shows and photos on Flickr, I have to say that this is my longest lagging project: each gets its turn, and slowly comes to fruition. So, hopefully, will my photo and art exhibition collection. 

In the meantime, enjoy Flickr, and write me if you're interested in my work.
