Flick'em

When I began adding photos to Flickr, I had no idea what I was in for. As a person who is interested in almost everything, Flickr does not help my attention span. Now I have must-view-each-day people, stuff I want to find pictures of, stuff I want to share pictures of, and then, there are the photo pools. What doesn't surprise me in this day and age is that many, many people have very good photography skills. The technology is even better.

But there is something wider that I'm on to here. On Flickr, we are seeing the chronicling of our world, our times. It's for all practical purposes, a snapshot into a very unique point in history: one where so much of our lives continues to increase in speed, all while the interest in the old seems to keep up with the new.

So with that, I might start adding a Flickr photo of the day. Might not get to it every day - hell I have enough troubles getting to MRQ once a week and blogging itself is something I can't simply "sit down and do." For me, with all writing, it can't happen by itself. I liken it to getting nauseated, and having to find something to throw up in. Actually, that's exactly how it is.

Now that I've grossed you all out, here is my first Flickr of the day:

Make sure you stop by my page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/racefan71

Surely not all the photos I've snapped, but representative...

Had to sell my gear a few months ago which killed me to no end...but hopefully I'll get back in the "game" soon...
