January 11th, 2008 Dim Flickr of a blog.

Maybe I need to quit blogging since I only get into it once a month or so. I’d rather figure out a reason to post more often. Maybe photography, we’ll see… In the last month or so, I’ve picked up my first DSLR camera, a Digital Rebel, and taken to photography as a hobby rather than a passing interest.

Also, like 2 months ago, I signed up for a Flickr account, mostly for a class project. I was going to make some mediocre review of the service, maybe try out Smugmug and Picasa, figure out which one to sign up for the “Pro” version of. Well I realized how many people I know on flickr (several), versus Smugmug (one), versus Picasa (one), and had to go to Flickr by default.

That said, I like the rich feel of Smugmug better, especially the function of the site on the Wii’s integrated browser. I also like the fact that it’s owned by neither Yahoo nor Google. On the other hand, being backed by Yahoo or Google may be a good thing, since neither one is likely to vanish into the night. But still, the ubiquity of Flickr, the reasonable price for the “Pro” upgrade, and the fact that more people I know use it, I had to go with Flickr.

Yadda yadda yadda, here are some samples of the photos I’ve taken (besides the one of me), and also a link to my flickr account.
