Flickr’s New Home Page is Fantastic!Southern Maid

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 15:51:38 +0000

Even in the new Instagram, Facebook, Snapchatty world, Flickr still remains my favorite place to share photos. I have now posted over 120,000 photos to Flickr and it remains my primary online archive for my body of work. Even though you don’t hear about Flickr as much in the headlines these days, there is still […]

Henri Cartier-Bresson once said that your first 10,000 photos are your worst.

Over time though you eventually learn your camera backwards […]

The 4th Generation AppleTV is a Flawed and Frustrating DeviceAppleTV-5AppleTV-3AppleTV-2Apple TV is a Flawed and Frustrating ExperienceAppleTV-6AppleTV-4

*Disclaimer: Many of the problems of the 4th generation AppleTV are problems by the app creators for the device. Further, cable companies and content providers in many cases are likely disincentivized to make AppleTV a good or smooth experience.

20 Random Thoughts on Google Photos in a Rambling Stream of Consciousness FormatGoogle Photos MosaicAlbum is EmptyNo Keywords in Google Photos

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 16:43:47 +0000

Not exactly beat poetry, this list is a rambling mess of 20 things that I thought about today about my experience with Google Photos. This list is very poorly written and absolutely lacks coherence. It’s a stream of consciousness jumble of unrelated thoughts about Google Photos. I’ve been using (and uploading to) Google Photos non-stop […]

In Defense of FlickrIn Defense of Flickr

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 00:48:31 +0000

I’ve read two articles this week that appear critical of Flickr and thought I’d take a moment to address both, as well as share some of my own thoughts on Flickr. I have been a heavy Flickr photographer for over a decade and for most of this past decade have been active on the site […]
