Flickr still exists! You'll find me uploading photos at least a couple times a day. The place seems just as vibrant and engaging as it ever did.
Flickr groups is where the site still shines. Here are a few of my daily must visits. Clearly I still have much to learn, these folks are amazing.
• Catchy Colors. As the name implies, these are the photos that pop with color. Saturation heavy and quite wonderful.
• Vanishing Points. Think Piers reaching out to sea, straight roads in the desert stretching for miles. I could look at these all day.
• Sunset Light. Truly the best time of the day.
• The Skies Above. Sunsets, and sky, and clouds. Oh my.
• Less Is More. Minimalism at its finest.
• Black And White. Because I've never met a black and white photo I didn't like.
A moment to step outside and breathe in that after thunderstorm air. Phoenix is on day three of storm watch 2019 and there has been rain. Our garage flooded and we have a bucket in the kitchen catching drops. So that's cool.
The camera on this iPhone 11 is every bit as good as they say it is. Oh and hey, I have a new iPhone 11.
I'm sitting here waiting for my grilled cheese sarnie (because I'm seven years old) and start watching the other customers. This cafe has an iPad terminal that you sign with your finger. In the two minutes I've been here I've seen lots of different finger signing techniques.
There's must get it correct slow signing lady. There's who gives a shit squiggle guy. And then this most recent one just put a X in the box. Me? I'm squiggle guy. Life's too short man.
Rolling Stone should really stop making lists. In no way are most of the artists listed there the "best singers in the world" ever. Songwriters and performers maybe, but singers?
A hundred thousand years ago I wrote a thing to post top last.fm listens to a Movable Type blog. No one does that anymore and the world moved onto tweekly.fm. When Scott (@ssxio) was toying with shutting that service down, I cloned some of what I'd used for toppr and lastweekly came to be.
Finally got around to watching Edge Of Tomorrow. Was very very good. Thought it would just be another Tom Cruise alien invasion kill the mothership tale. But it's way better than that.
If my goal was to make our house Spencer's animal sanctuary, feeding stray cats who wander into our yard has made it so! My wife is extremely happy with me for this. Ahem.
