I found many interesting things on Flickr. Some of the items that I searched were my name and the town I live in. It was interesting to see some locations (parks, fountains, cafes, etc.) that have my name. It was also interesting to see some of the places I pass by everyday in pictures that really brought out the beauty in them.
Flickr and other similiar sites are great for storing photos without the worry of losing them if your computer crashes. It's also a great way to share an important moment with friends and family.
I can also see how this site can get people excited about photography and allow others to get new ideas. It's also a great way to learn new techniques.
