      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

      Father Time is riding out his last few minutes of being the temporal keeper for 2011; he sits in an easy chair with a calendar showing “Dec 31” behind him and a grandfather clock pointing to the time of 11:53. … Continue reading →

      A happy young lady shares a table at a tony restaurant with her cat; they both wear festive, cone-shaped party hats. The woman gaily says to the tuxedoed server, “One martini and one glass of milk.” The cat does not … Continue reading →

Love Flickr. Or is it, The Flickr.

Either way, love it. And yet, like any other love, it takes caring, feeding, and maintenance. So that’s what I’m doing today.

My thinking was that, since I hadn’t posted a picture to Flickr since February, I’d take care of that today … just whip a few pics up there and be done with it. Not so fast, sonny.

My first step was to determine which pictures I haven’t posted. I didn’t go to the camera(s) yet, just looked at what was on my machine. It was quick enough; I found the spot, picked the correct folder, and started pushing up.

Great … but then the fun stopped. I needed to add titles to them all. I didn’t really have to, but that’s what I’ve been doing so, to remain consistent, the titles go in. That’s fine, I’ll choose some lame titles, copy over the same title for images that are similar, and get ‘er done! But, then I notice I have a few “coop” pictures in with my “backyard & garden” collection. OK, so I have to clean that up.

That was harder than I would have liked, meaning it was slow going with just picking one picture, fiddling with the attributes and moving on. So I moved into the Sets & Collections area. And, as I was refamiliarizing myself with this area, I saw that I didn’t have mosaics built for all my collections and I started correcting that. And I think you get the flavor of how my day’s going to go. 🙂  One little thing leads to another.

But, I’m slowly updating my digital image world and, while it may take longer than I’d like, I am content that (for $24 [or something like that] a year) I have someone ensuring my pictures are backed up and perserved.

Thanks, Flickr.
