My Friend Flickr

July 6th, 2007

i have flickr now. I HAVE FLICKR NOW!

For most of you, especially those of you who know what kind of camera you shoot with (and I didn’t, not until I signed up with Flickr) — this is not a big deal. But I can’t figure out photos — uploads, downloads, sideloads, how to group things, how to post little fingernails — thumbnails! — onto the site so it doesn’t take you an hour to call up my site when you get there.

Things like that.

(I didn’t know what kind of camera I had, do you get what I’m saying? I mean, I’m not exactly cutting-edge technology here.)

But thanks to my Yahoo! e-mail account (that I forgot I had), I just buzzed right through it. Seeing Jenny McB’s pix got me all excited. I, too, am crafty! I knit! I put her down as my first contact. I feel so bonded with her now. Go look at her pictures, they’re real sweet.

I shoot with a Canon PowerShot A10. (It told me what kind of camera I took the pictures with. It told me what date. This blows me away. Me: “Is that Neskowin?” (in Oregon.) Hockey God: “It’s Carlsbad. Look at the date!” Me: “Whoa!”) It’s just a simple camera, but I like the pictures I take with it. Anyway, there are only a dozen pix on there so far, but you can see the ducks and rose petals from today, and a few shots of our poor, pitiful bathroom when it was being remodeled last year. Really wishing I’d taken befores ‘n’ afters of our living room — we’ve gone from purple, blue and gold (sponge-painting and “paper bag art,” yick) to green and blue (also yick) to a nice, simple off-white. Delicious!

I’ll upload more photos soon. Because now I know how to.

    LOL, you are cute! I feel so bad for the dog in the top, I can only imagine his thoughts…

    Your scenery is great! A cool thing to check out at Flickr is the DILO, it’s day in the life of group and its the only group I participate in. I just like seeing what everyone else sees during the day.

    yay! That is awesome. I always thought you didn’t post pics because of stalkers, no-good-nics and the ilk. Your page is so web-savvy, I never would have thunk you didn’t know everything there is in the known world wide web. Then I remembered that you have this great web designer that you’re sleeping with. :)

    Mallory, you are funny. Just for your information, I did it all by myself, without help from the hockey player/computer guy I sleep with! That is how easy Flickr is! I want to be a celebrity spokesmodel for them now.

    It’s true… she did it all herself! (And I’m not really a Web designer; I just play one in my spare time.)
