Flickr, Flick and Share

I’ve been a long-time Flickr user and fan ever since get­ting into Pho­tog­ra­phy. It’s been more than 5-years since I’ve joined, and to this day, I still con­sider it (hands down) the best photo shar­ing site out there. It keeps it sim­ple and just makes it easy for peo­ple to do what they want to do, share their pho­tos with friends and fam­ily.

With the Hol­i­days upon us, we are see­ing loved ones that we don’t often see as dis­tance is usu­ally a fac­tor. But one thing we do to recall and make those mem­o­ries last are take pho­tos and/or videos. I had my cam­era and just snapped away dur­ing our recent fam­ily gath­er­ing. I then uploaded the set/album to Flickr to share it.

One thing that is lim­it­ing is that not all of my relatives/friends/family are on Flickr. Even then, you are only lim­ited to down­load on a per photo basis (at the moment?). As to find a solu­tion to have my aunt down­load the entire set/album, as she wanted to get them printed at Costco, I dug around and for­tu­nately found Flick and Share.

How-to Map Photos on Flickr with Pinpoint Accuracy

It seems that I haven’t (in the time of writ­ing) added a geolo­ca­tion to one of my favorite pho­tographs, as well as Life-moments.

Truly a “Breath­less Bal­cony.” Taken on the third day of a recent Inka Trail trek at Intipata in Peru.

Mean­while, back to the sub­ject. If we’re talk­ing about Flickr, Yahoo! comes to mind. The only thing that sucks about map­ping on Flickr is the lim­ited cov­er­age and sub­par details of Yahoo! Maps (in this case). You get results like these:

Ode to Flight

I decided to do a quick exper­i­ment using my Canon Pow­er­shot SD880 cam­era. I doc­u­mented my flight from Bur­bank to Oak­land this past Sun­day night. I know its an every­day thing now since its been part of soci­ety since the early 20th cen­tury but its just crazy cov­er­ing 350 miles in just an hour. The con­ve­nience of that ver­sus dri­ving a car for 5.5–6 hours between the Bay and LA.

Flight—its sim­ply an amaz­ing thing.

Here is the set that I compiled.
