I have a Flickr account and for the longest time I didn’t know what to do with it. I just kind of imagined that it was my online storage and that I wouldn’t have to worry about losing photos. But as I spend a little more time with it, I find myself enjoying it more and more. Here’s one of my favorites:
The only real problem I see with my Flickr account is that my pictures get buried and I tend never to go back through those that I have posted. But recently I started doing that to my friends. Those who have connected with me through flickr. Here are some of my favorites buried within their respective photostreams.
From my friend Josh: His blog can be found here –

Also when digging around I found this little gem from my friend Dale. 🙂
The above photo really caught my eye, Which is really funny, because going through his photostream, this is not completely indicative of the photos he likes to shoot. But this below photo was buried way deep and I thought it needed to see the light of day again. 🙂

Now there are a couple of people I know who do this kind of thing professionally. One of those people; Aaron, who is pretty active in the photography community here in Portland and has quite the following so I found it difficult to pick one photo that really captures the kind of eye he has. So I went with one that really caught my eye…

Another one of my friends who should get a mention within this is Lucas; who, after finding him on Flickr, I found he has an incredible eye for some of this stuff. Here’s something I dug up from the vaults of his photostream.

I could keep going with all the photos I’ve found through Flickr but I do feel like I’m being a little cyberstalker-ish as I’m digging through lots and lots of photos throughout Flickr and through my friend’s Photo streams. It’s actually quite fun and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It also reminds me that while I do love to take pictures, I’m not sure that I would have a career in it, though its really fun to share them. If you’re not connected with me on Flickr yet, we need to do so. But be advised I will surf through your photostream and dig up things. You can find me at the following link. I leave you with one last photo:
