I have been searching for a few days now for the perfect site to display some of my best photographs. After all those hours I have decided to get serious with Flickr… Again. That is what this post is all about.Read more
A few months ago I told you that I was moving my InSearchOfAmerica stuff to Flickr. That site now has over 800 pictures and about 8,000 visits of my travels throughout America. That is pretty good but one thing that is missing are words. Flickr is primarily a visual media and there is just not much there to support the written word.
So, to eliminate that problem I am doing a little backtracking. I have decided to use a parallel approach to my ISOA catalog. Starting soon, I will be adding regular ISOA posts back to RJsCorner. The one thing that will be different is that I will limit my pictures on each post to a couple and then give a link to a larger album on Flickr.
I know, a picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words but a picture without words describing the story behind it leaves the picture less than it should be. I think this solution will satisfy the void that Flickr only is leaving me with. If you have any suggestions on this topic please let me know.
Just a quick note to let you know I just published a new album on Mesa Verde on my Flickr Account. Click here to view it.
Just a short post to tell you that I just added a Santa Fe album to my Flickr portfolio. Click here to see it.
Santa Fe has become my favorite city InSearchOfAmerica. It is flush with history, heritage especially things Native-American and Spanish.
Just a quick note to let you know that I have added a Louisville Album to my Flickr collection. Click here to view it.
I made an “executive” decision a while back to use Flickr as the residence of my future InsearchOfAmerica photo arrays. Just added a new photo album there. If you ever wondered what the island of Nantucket looks like click here. We were there in 1999. We knew that would be our last year living on the east coast so Yvonne insisted we go to Nantucket so she could buy a lightship basket to add to her collection.
The island is not as famous as Martha’s Vineyard but still had its share of multimillionaire’s summer cottages and thousands of small shops. The disappointing thing about the island was the number of cars there. Every street was clogged with them. Maybe I am spoiled by Mackinac Island where no cars are allowed
