Flickr is an addictive online photo sharing website. The quality of photos there is humbling. Down below is a little account of how easy it is to get a photo from a camera onto this blog, or onto Flickr. The Collingwood Children’s Farm, and Abbotsford, Melbourne, 3067 groups have been going about as long as this blog, but on the weekend, I set up sister groups for Richmond, Collingwood, Fitzroy and Kew. Above is a beautiful photo characteristic of a school of photographers with monnikers such as Ziz, Nettsu, Lonely Radio, Helen Morgan and — in the case of this beautiful photo — Donina, who delight in finding beauty in urban details, and, in the case of S2uart have nothing less than an obsession with such mundanities as shopping trolleys, an aspect of life which has spawned an online photographic community limited to Melbournians which boasts more than 20 members.This is how easy it is. I point with my camera and click in a way never before possible during history. I plug a little cord into it joining it with my Mac. Iphoto opens and takes over. The photos download. I drag them onto the Flickr uploader icon on the dock (the Mac equivalent of the toolbar) add some tags, hit “upload” and then click the “Open Flickr” button, where I add some titles and the all-important tags, and add them to some groups. Then, it’s just a question of right clicking on the photo and choosing “copy image location” and pasting it into the URL field in the dialog box which opens when I press the “add photo” icon in the blog post writing template in WordPress.
