Regular readers of my blog know that I don’t Instagram. I Flickr. I know that over a billion people worldwide are registered users on Instagram, and that it’s probably the 2ND most popular app / web site known to mankind (2ND to Facebook which owns Instagram). I never got into Instagram. I’ve never created an account. I don’t even know what it looks like. I ignore all Instagram links. I’m probably missing some fun stuff, but oh well. I’m a Flickr(er).
Flickr was created long before Instagram – way back in 2004. Yahoo ran it for about a dozen years. I’ve been a registered user since April 2011, and I’ve been a paying (“PRO”) member for many years now. I like Flickr. I like it a lot. It’s my favorite social media app / web site (after WordPress of course). It’s where I store all of my photos online – most of them (88%) for public viewing.
I generally average about 250 to 300 uploaded photos per year. But I don’t just upload photos. I do research on my photos and write captions for each of them. I often learn more about what I took a picture of weeks and months later. It’s like electronic photo-booking. Each photo is individually enhanced (brightened, straightened, etc.), uploaded, and captioned into one of my albums on Flickr based on location or subject matter.
This past week I finally finished uploading and captioning all of my photos from my recent Spring Break road-trip this past February. You may have seen some of them by glancing down near the bottom of this page where the last 6 added to my Flickr Photostream are displayed.
Many of my Spring Break road-trip photos can be viewed on my Tampa Bay Region album. There are 136 photos and 1 video (of a sunset) within that album from 2014 on, and it showcases my best vacation photos from the Tampa Bay region of Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota, and Hardee Counties. I spent a day in Hardee County on my recent road-trip, so the final 12 photos of that album are from that day.
In the future I may showcase a different Flickr album about once a month here on my blog – maybe on the last Thursday of every month.
I’ve also got another road-trip vacation planned, so one of my Flickr albums will soon be updated with all-new photos.
