I VIVIDLY REMEMBER standing upstream from the mill in Kells during the Kilkenny Arts Festival and snapping the shot at left. That was the first phot that I sent to Flickr, now seven years and thousands of Flickr images ago. Back then, anybody could wade into Flickr and socialise with Caterina and Stewart in their start-up. Both of those founders have moved on to other ventures and most of the early community spirit has faded. I still like Flickr, especially the handheld functionality. I snap and send most of my images now from my Nokia handset. Many of my Foursquare check-ins come with a photo too and they automatically push up to Flickr. I've started a set of Foursquare venues to give viewers some sort of context in the strange shots I take. More than anything else, Flickr is part of my lifestream. I like using it for that and hope I can focus on producing a small coffee table book of my most-viewed images some day soon.
