I went searching today for an image I remember making, but not its time date or any other details about it. Eventually I found the photograph I was looking for, and added it to the group that had prompted, its search. But in the interim, I realised I have become remarkably less obsessed with uploading images to flickr over the last couple of years. I have no shortage of them to upload mind.
Recently I discovered, quite by accident, that I had my flickr stream removed from public searches. This is affectionately know as being NIPS'd. My view count on my flckr stream had dropped quite dramitically over the last month and I was perplexed as to why. To the point where I was questioning my continuation of my flickr account. Now that I have resolved the issue regarding the public searches, my views have returned to the state they had been at for most of the time I've ben on flickr, since the stats were introduced. This is a worry as this means, that, the majority of my views come from these searches. Should I care? Should I use this as an excuse to re-focus my energies elsewhere? We'll see.
My flickr views have taken a bit of a beating over the last couple of weeks, in that they have dropped to an all time low. I just discovered today, that the flickr staff have hidden my account from public searches. Why I don't know, and the only reason I found out was I was looking for my exif data in the new interface, when I discovered the setting.
Almost back in one piece, been processing some of the digital images I made whilst away in July.
The film shots too will surface soon, when; I'm not sure, I am sure however that I plan on trying to have another solo show, in the next 2 years. Firstly I need to make hard copy proof sheets to see what I've got, this set on flickr has some beginnings I think, then, after I've edited the body of work, I'll choose between Type C or ink-jet prints.
Watch this space. In the interim, I'll have to write another series of proposals.
Is Flickr taking a nose-dive? Have we seen the end of flickr?
These last few weeks there's been plenty of "trouble ut mill", to quote the Monty Python crew. The hold your clicks message is appearing a little to often for my liking.
There has also been lot's of tweets about deletion of accounts and barring from certain pools. Now today this:-
Personally it's been an interesting experiment, and perhaps it's time to move on, trouble is because of the commitment I have to altfotonet.org I am really torn.
Not to mention it's been 2 years since my last solo show, and finally after all these years I am feeling comfortable with my colour work, ah well I guess I can commit when my registration is due for renewal?
...and that's not being talked about.
A new feature has been introduced to the flickr experience, called places, it allows you to search for and find images of places around the globe.
At some point I'll, write a bit about some of the shows I've seen. There is so much to see it's not funny, and of course as always a fabulous display of what current practitioners are doing.
Well at, well over 2 years down the track on Flickr, I've begun to notice a change in how I use the service. These days it seems to be all about muckin' around with other flickr users in the DBOLRL pool, a place where smart alek's get together and cast meaningless votes on images made with low rez image capture devices
What I'm doing nowadays is uploading an image or two, making them "private" and once it has been through the grist of DBOLRL opening it up to public scrutiny
A far cry from my early days where I my mindset was coming from some other angle... what I actually can't remember. Still it's all good clean fun and who knows maybe, someone in the future will find these cyber-footprints of mine amusing or enlightening.
Been Using Flock a fair bit of late, hats off to Lord Of The Flies over on flickr for prompting me to give it another go.
This browser is very much geared towards to Web 2.0 and the social aspect of the internet.
Flickr forms a major part in it's design and use, along with delicious, blogging and of course news feeds. Clicking on a small icon that appears in the bottom right corner of any photo on flickr allows you to launch that person's stream at the top of the browser window and then very quickly scroll across it to see what's new in thumbnail form. If something grabs you you can click on it to view the larger picture and entire page below.
It has a built in photo-uploader, that allows quick and easy uploading directly from it's interface. Tagging is real easy and adding to your own sets is an easy next step after adding a title description and tags.
Another great feature is the snippets bar at the bottom of the screen, here you can store text and images for later use.
Bookmarking has deli.cio.us built right in, this took me a little while to realise but was most likely due to my own ignorance more than poor design on flock's part. You can choose to share or not to share your bookmark/s as you work.
All in all this browser is shaping up to be a good all-rounder. I wish however that the curser when clicked around on the screen didn't keep disappearing, and I have yet to test flock for colour fidelity.
The Australian Bush-fires have had an impact on flickr.
That speaks volumes in my opinion!
Will this bring an onslaught of "Art" images revolving around the devastation as has been mentioned in other blogs out there? Personally I am interested in the scarification of the landscape, and will venture out there, camera or two in hand, when it all dies down, might even pull out the 5 x 4?
Like all good legends this one is scant on details, but a good read nonetheless
I really appreciate and am conscious of the sense of community provided by sites like flickr, and jpgmag, but in a noise to signal ratio world [where the signal is low] it's often difficult to get noticed, and noticed for the right reasons.
Sites like jpgmag, seem to have come from that need of recognition that so many folks hanker for. I wish I could say that I don't really suffer this, but hey I'm human and being ignored is something many humans don't shine to very well. So in the spirit of the online community that has developed over the last couple of years around photography, I ask both my readers to vote for my images on jpg mag.
