Flick, Errrr...

Wednesday, July 12, 2006


Thank you, Erikku, for suggesting that I get a Flickr site on my blog. I haven't really looked at Flickr much and don't really look at other peoples', when they have them on their blogs. So I wonder what you all think; is it a useful thing to have? Should I get one?

The weather has been warm and wonderful and I have been getting work finished that I have been sitting on for ages. We are expecting a stormy day tomorrow and then warm and sunny for the weekend. You all know by now that I am weather obsessed, and now I am beginning to think about the calm before the hurricane storm. Our ocean waters in the Northwest Atlantic are up to five degrees Celsius warmer than "normal", which is not a good thing for us where hurricanes are involved. You know that you will be hearing more about this from me in the future. The other thing that is on my mind, well, pretty much always on my mind, is global warming, and I will have some more to post about this topic, for certain.

Something I rarely blog about is music, which might lend you to believe that I am not really a music aficionado, but I am, really...it's just that I don't blog about it. So I will perhaps try to do so more often. Today, I was listening to a group by the name of Small Sins , who have a Canadian lead singer as well as the wonderful Australian group, The Waifs. I love "London Still"...the words aren't really relevant to me but the tone of the song is wonderful, it's really a day-dreamy kind of song.

But in the meantime, back to the question of Flickr...

    I don't usually spend time looking at others flicker loops or photos. Most usually have photos that have already appeared on the post. I'd much rather see the photo on the post than in flicker mode.
    Glad you enjoy the Waifs, i think they're from Perth Western Australia :o)

    I'm totally with you on the global warming issue Cathy (living on an island you have to be aware). Did you here about that small town/village in Alaska that has had to relocate after thousands of years because the ice is breaking up ? Scary.

    If only we could get the Americans to sign the Kyoto agreement on emissions. A quarter of the worlds damaging CO2 emissions come from the USA, and the senate voted 95-0 against signing the agreement. That's scary. It won't happen in our lifetime Cathy, but the first signs are starting to show.

    So Flickr...it's nice that people can see your pictures and comment on them, but you also get to post them here so...it's up to you! ;)
    I'm not a big fan, to be honest. Looks like everyone is sharing everything with the world (books, photos, ideas, wishlists...) it's a little exhausting...where is it heading?
    I can't criticize too much though...I have a blog, after all. ;)
    Cathy, you'd really obsess about global warming if you lived here: it's been SO hot this week. I'm not leaving the house today, I can't deal with heat in the city ;)

    I just realized that I must have a winking problem ;) lol

    What ever decision you make , we get to see them first! That's what counts.. ;) You always put up great photos.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i love Flickr. it's very useful and you can have your photos in groups. Also, it's a place where you get feedback about your photos. For me, it's a way to keep up to date with my blogfriends lives, visually.
    I always check other people's photos when they have a flickr badge on their blogs. Go for it!

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    I say only do it if you have time and really want others to see a lot of photos.

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    I never look at Flickr's either. I put a few on mine but I'm going to take them off when I figure it out, lol!

    I like the flickr things & do tend to look at them. As far as posting to them, it's exhausting (for me, and for anyone who bothers to open it too) to try to do everything, so I reserve it for photos that have some sort of special significance to me. I like to see them spin by, because my blog's nearly a year old now and I'd forget about some of them otherwise. So I guess my Flickr's mostly for me, but it's cool when others appreciate the photos too. I've downloaded "London Still" to take with me on my trip, but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. Small Sins sound a bit '80's retro, but I think I like that :) Thanks for the musical tips!

  1. Blogger Hliza said:

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I only open Flickr account coz it can resize yr photo to specific sizes (which I don't know how to do myself) and it's useful when I want to see great photos by professional photographers. It has flickr badge that can flash all ye photos in the blog; which I love too. Other than that, it's useless really coz I don't do much photoblogging.
    So, up to you!

    Oh! You know what! I found something last night that I can't wait to share with you and everyone, a advertisement from the Serria Club from 1975 talking about global warming and Golden Gate Bridge almost covered in water except the top two towers. You are so on Top of things! :)

  1. Blogger Trundling Grunt said:

    I like to look at some of the Flickr sites because there are some really great photographs on it. They just aren't mine :-|

  1. Blogger Dr. Deborah Serani said:

    Flickr rocks. I hope you like it.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Thank you for all your comments..I have no plans to start one up in the very near future, but you never know...

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Hi Cathy,
    I've often looked at Flickr, and thought ... will I, won't I ? So far I haven't !! It looks good on other's sites, though !!
    Take care, Meow

    The Waifs ... I've seen them live! They played a concert for MusicFest a couple years back (see t-shirt post).

    They are a great band, fantastic to see live, and I have three of their albums. I would also suggest "Crazy Train" and... well, almost anything else of theirs.

    Well, I have a flikr badge on my blog. Did you ever check mine out? If not, then I'd say that's your answer. I do check out other people's flickrs myself, because I like to see what people take photos of.
