Magic shadows

I've had a digital camera for over two years now and despite having shot over 3000 pictures with it, I haven't printed off more than 10 of them. And of course, of all the print photos I do have clogging the bottom shelf of my entertainment unit, probably less than 1/10th of them have ever been seen by anybody but Tam or I. A month or two ago, I decided to do something about it and started researching the various online services.

I've settled on flickr. For a mere $25/yr I can upload 2GB per month (no download or viewing limits) and have my photos stored untouched in their original format. People can view and get links to them in any size; I can put them into sets, drop a single photo into multiple sets, add them to group photo pools, tag them, comment on them, mark them up with notes, let everyone else do the same; and of course slide shows are available from just about any view. Yeah, I was impressed.

So for those of you who didn't notice the "View my photos on flickr" link added to the sidebar last month, you can now view my photos on flickr.
