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.
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.

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:
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.
