I love the swans from above.

Wish we'd had more snow where I am. Snapped a couple of crap shots on the way to work yesterday, that's the only chance I had.

This is the joint account I have with my missus:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/pernfors88/

We've had it since March 2005 and, unless you're a "friend" and/or one of a group of SE London parents who've been sent Guest Pass links to some sets, you won't be able to see the vast majority of the 6,000+ (!) images on there. Just tedious pictures of my commute or nice pics of things Pam has made.

Don't admin any groups but I did curate a Gallery a while back for lovely bits of signage culled from my Favourites:

Ledge I see you have a set called Lake District 09; is this stills from the film shoot for a beatific BBC2 TV spin-off of the sc-fi apartheid film?

My flickr is full of photoshopped pictures of andrei arshavin and not much else.

Mr Southall, from your first few pages, I especially like your 'fingers of ice' and 'tired bob' photos.

I'll look through more of the stuff here later..

Hmmm. That's got me thinking. Let's have a mini sub-thread in this thread...

Titling Photos
I tend to give my photos either quite flippant or else very dull & descriptive titles. I feel that this is holding me back, and that this image, say, http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2521/4234774484_453ac0d422.jpg, rather than being called "Shadows", ought to be called something wanky and pseudo-poetic like... "There will never be more than one sunset between you and I", or some such bollocks.

But seriously, how do you go about titling photos for upload?

brain thoughts (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:20 (eight years ago) Permalink

I ask my wife. Otherwise everything ends up being "milk child" or "blanket window", like I'm some mentally-challenged contestant on Roy Walker's Catchphrase.

But, yeah, punnish references to popular culture are fine by me.

Michael Jones, Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:25 (eight years ago) Permalink

the stages of my flickr titling:

2005: camera supplied e.g. dsc00078
2005-2007: short descriptive/punny titles
2007: unicode characters to 'represent' the image e.g. /≈/ for

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1429/649771187_51b13caad2.jpg

2007-now: no titles

CATBEAST 7777 (ledge), Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:34 (eight years ago) Permalink

See I think "milk child" and "blanket window" are fabulous titles. Better, and more abstract, than, say Upside-down chair or Balloon animal, which I think are my own personal nadir.

brain thoughts (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:35 (eight years ago) Permalink

unicode characters was my fave but it got too difficult to keep up, i was just repeating the same ideas.

CATBEAST 7777 (ledge), Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:37 (eight years ago) Permalink

with no titles the image speaks for itself, maaaan.

CATBEAST 7777 (ledge), Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:39 (eight years ago) Permalink

I think playing safe with just a regular "this is what it is" title is better than overreaching for some comic effect or my own "say what you see" double-noun blankness. Also, I know my in-laws are now looking at our photostream, so "Fucking Menko" or "Shitstorm in a Piss Cup" are right out.

The Unicode era was great, Ledge.

Michael Jones, Thursday, 14 January 2010 15:40 (eight years ago) Permalink

Ledge, during the Unicode era did you find yourself taking pictures just cos you knew you had characters to represent it?

haha no way. could be an interesting strategy though!

This hysteria over turtle abuse has to end. Statistically they're more likely to get molested by soldiers who are all gay now. I remember when you could kick a ball in the street etc

If you're going through someone's photostream, do you think it is a good idea to "introduce" yourself? I look at a lot of travel and architecture pictures, my idea of showing appreciation is to leave a compliment or star something. I hope that is enough, some people look awfully busy.

It used to drive me nuts when people put lots of sparkly comments and graphics all over good pictures. When an American does this I want to beat them over the head, but I'm more forgiving of Europeans, I think they do this because they don't all write in the same language?

Isn't there just! I don't mind the re-design. An option for a "classic view" would maybe be nice, possibly some minor customisation options for the photostream, but it certainly doesn't deserve the reaction it's had!

michaellambert, Monday, 20 May 2013 23:32 (five years ago) Permalink

a lot of people are appearing in my feed with images that say "flickr: born 2004, died 2013" etc.

It's the account changes that are frustrating; I quite like the redesign.

I am hedging my bets though, so let's see if I can embed a photo from 500px...

eris bueller (lukas), Tuesday, 21 May 2013 20:40 (five years ago) Permalink

Mr Jones, would you recommend 500px?

not_goodwin, Tuesday, 21 May 2013 22:07 (five years ago) Permalink

Well, I've paid $25/year for 8 years for a Pro account. Now I can either let it lapse and get ads (I can ad-block, but ppl surfing my stream on a Guest Pass won't be) or pay twice as much for ad-free. Or just carry renewing the Pro account for as long as Yahoo decide to keep it going (it's not really part of the new structure). Bit annoying. A cheaper transition to Ad Free for long-term Pro users would've been nice.

xp - it seems quite nice, good blend of the new-style Flickr look with lots of text on the right. Don't fully understand the community aspect of it yet (one of my photos has a "pulse" of 52.6, whatever that means) but everything I've put up has a view or two.

Michael Jones, Tuesday, 21 May 2013 22:17 (five years ago) Permalink

i dont mind the layout, but its def making digging through 2000 photos of my photostream to find one specific photo pretty difficult compared to the old way

gr8080, Wednesday, 22 May 2013 16:33 (five years ago) Permalink

I'll complain a little now. for whatever reason no photostreams will load on my work computer (5 year old or so imac). don't know why.

chinavision!, Thursday, 23 May 2013 12:56 (five years ago) Permalink

like if i want to find a specific photo thats 1000 photos deep in my photostream, i used to be able to just skip to like page 20 or something and then click few a few more pages till i found it

with the new layout it seems like it gets really confused and the same photos show up on pages 14, 15, and 16

ʎqןıs (gr8080), Thursday, 23 May 2013 13:01 (five years ago) Permalink

I find my own stuff by searching mainly so I'm fine there, but otherwise these changes are getting worse and worse for me. My flickr experience involves lots of wordy stuff - descriptions and comments - which are now buried below the fold. Plus all the hierarchical organization things (sets and collections) which have been rendered more or less invisible. Even Facebook gets you to albums more easily. Ughhhhh.
