A New Year; a New Change?

2009 back catalogue
Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!

This is a screen grab from iView Media Pro, it shows I have 108 images from 2009, queued up for upload,to flickr. My 2008 file has 34 also awaiting upload to flickr. Making a total of 142 images. Based on a loose regime of 3 images uploaded a week I have 47 weeks worth of images to upload. This is only counting my phone-camera, there are a few from my Nikon Coolpix 3700 and my Vistaquest to upload as well.

As I head into my 5th year of using flickr, looking back things have changed, changed dramatically. When I first started using flickr, I would upload almost daily, and spend innumerable hours connecting with all the other great people I'd 'meet'. Now, I have to remember to upload and some weeks it takes me so long to pick, which images to add, to keep the flow happening in my stream, I give up and leave it for a few days. Fortunately the altfotonet group still has some outstanding stuff, as does several others, where some cross posting occurs. Other changes to my online activity come from external sources like twitter and facebook. Now if I could just find a way to get paid for all my online activity?

Some exciting news.

Issue two of our gallery e/zine is slowly gathering momentum. We will look at 3 photographers, and one city, and see, how a place can inspire, motivate, & drive creative individuals. We'll also look at the commonalities & differences between each photographer's approach.

As part of my original idea to set up, I have lodged an application for an ISSN number. Which I did online over the weekend and am awaiting a response.

The altfotonet group on flickr and the blog are humming along nicely as well. Join the group if you like what you see there. If you feel you have something you want to say or add to the blog, by all means please do, contact me and I will set up an account for you.

Seaking of the altfotonet blog, this week's picture of the week is by barb, I chose it because it reminded me of Man Ray's Dust Breeding 1920. The formality of the composition belies the casualness of the scene, have a look, see what you think?
