The reason why I love Flickr

Ladies in White - Musee d'Art et d'Histoire de Geneve

I have been interested in photography for a while, it started with my interest in painting, which in turn is rooted from the taste of capturing real life into frame. Though I still draw time to time, photography is easier for me for such purpose.

But it takes a while for me to settle with Flickr. I fell in love immediate with . With Flickr, it doesn’t feel like with Instagram or Facebook, where the focus is on the act of publishing a photo and the people in the photo. There is nothing wrong with that of course, and good for them when Facebook and Instagram exist. The point is, in Flickr, the photo is the main protagonist. And that is precisely the reason why I love Flickr.

Yahoo killed a very popular service in my country, the Yahoo! 360; i hope they will have enough of resource and vision to keep the Flickr alive and grow.
