Flickr Foto Phun!
Here's a pic of the moon on a cold, clear night.
Flicker is pretty interesting. I'm a member of a photography forum that just has different threads or catagories for animals or landscapes etc. It's fun sharing my photos with others from around the world. I received good feedback from people when I've uploaded pics.
Aside from the Folksonomy angle, I've been hesitent to use this type of site or others for photo storage. I worry that the site will change its policy or cease to exist and I will lose a wealth of pictures. This is a big question mark for people who shoot digital pics. I currently store my pics on my computer and an external hard drive. I also print out most of the ones that stand out. But a number of accidents could cause me to lose my pics forever. A friend that stores his pictures on a archive website has complained that the pics that he downloads from his site seem to have degraded noticably. What to do?
It's an interesting site. I spent a little time searching around and found a lot of great pictures. I even tried to do a search for the tag line that I used for my moon pic. I couldn't find it. There were countless pictures of the moon. It's exciting to think that I could type any word that comes to mind and see a massive amount of different pictures. A person could type in different word combinations in an effort to find what they need. They don't need to search through individual categories and hope they can find what they need. If I wanted to find a picture of a moose in the snow, I'd search for the corresponding tag words. If there is such a picture that someone took and tagged with those words, I would find it. The results of your search is heavily dependant on what people choose to tag their photos with. The possible variety seems limitless.
I might start using this site. I enjoy sharing my pictures and really enjoy seeing other people's work.
Question, how do you post your pic in your blog entry? I couldn't figure out how to do it.
