Let me know if you see any photos, or photosets, or groups, or anything cool that should be posted to FlickrBlog! Thanks!

Fubuki's Mantis Fu: Animated Set is pretty cool and excellent as a slide show. I'm also fond of his My addiction photo and his double downed is just brilliant.

Caterina, I know this is not exactly what you asked for, but if you want material for the blog, consider these... :)
OOOH! I love this. Eek, where do I start?

I love bigempty's Iceland set, especially this photo.

I've seen a few other remarkable sets recently, but I can't remember where. :( (We need a way to add sets to our favorites - hint, hint!)

No idea where this came from, but seems like good (that is, strange!) material for the FlickrBlog: (Warning: may be "internet crap"! Can't tell.)

...oh yeah, plus about a billion other photos from my favorites! A few that I particularly like:

Sorry; that ended up being a lot.

In terms of groups...
Glimpse looks promising.

OK, you're all probably totally sick of my suggestions now. Your fault for asking, though! :p
stimulating bikes [deleted]
I agree and second Special on Fubuki's sets. simply for the fact that they are original, extremely creative and very unique to Flickr.

I just posted the list of the most favored photos - several of which of course have been shown in the FlickrBlog - together with some analysis.
Vanita's Cookie Fortunes. Surpassingly blog worthy.

the flickrblog is best when showcasing groups, imo.

I've been enjoying the curiously named Nannydaddy's work lately (not a lot up yet, but one to watch).
Would be nice to publicise these new groups:

Flag Abuse
Flag Abuse
"about the commercialization of the image, of the icon, of the flag"
(open to flags from any country, but most examples so-far have been of the US flag)

Exquisite Corpse

"A group for surreal collages made from other people's images"

Images used with permission - contributors of images can leave links to them in this thread

the new "Collage Beginners" group

Just wanted to draw your attention to the following set by Nadar. It is a set of brilliant photos taken by his deceased father. Without flickr they would be languishing unseen in the family ephemera, and that would be a shame because they are stunning. This set is an on going loving tribute by a son to his father.

So not only is flickr giving contemporary photographers a venue in which to be seen, but it has the capacity to give voices to noteworthy photographers of the past too.

all of it, the photos and Nadar's loving appreciation of his father's work.

whoa. Pandarine, how is that done?
Hey somebonnie, it'a bit of work. I have to decide on the original photo (my fave for the month that is generally landscape oriented), and then go into photoshop and cut it all into the little parts. Then, i upload them and change their posted dates to the appropriate dates (and times of 23:59:59 so they're the one that shows), and that's it! It's a way to occupy an hour and a half on a non-photo day...
evanescent memory [deleted] 17 years ago
You got waaayyy too much time on your hands, Zen! :D
Some nice little groups that could benefit from some promotion. None of these are mine...

Mannequin - Beautiful and creepy photos of store mannequins.

Story Project - photos that have inspired original stories, or bits of stories, or perhaps the photos were taken to illustrate stories. With the story attached, they become part of the Story Project.

Sand - A place to post photos of small particles of pulverized rock.

Statuary - Photos and discussion about statues, ranging from gargoyles to commemorative to crazy things carved in stone. Anything that looks perfectly still in real life.

Spilled - Photos of spilled things, whether accidental or on purpose

Just for the record:
There is another group about sand, Special ;-)

i think this is an interesting group but is hidden in a lil' corner of the flickrverse:
The translations group would be good for the blog I think. Would help people that need translations find the resource to get them.

Also.. Group Therapy (an excellent resource for group owners) has a promotional topic listing many different groups.
The Abandoned pool is up to 500 or so ( I have to do a little pruning!) and it is studpendous. It's a terrific slideshow. People really stuck to the subject and it is truly a "collection." I hesitate to rave about this since it's "my" group, but it's not my group, I'm just the maid.

The Glimpse group has risen rapidly since it began on December 11th. There are currently 198 members with 269 Glimpses in the photo pool.

The group is for photographs that show a Glimpse to another place or world. It's the idea of a secret garden through the gate, an exciting adventure to be had beyond the place you are.

The main point is that you should be able to see only a tantalising Glimpse of what is beyond, or around the corner, or through the doorway ...

The different ways the Glimpse theme has been interpreted is constantly amazing.

This guy seems to be new here but I'm already a fan of his (mostly infrared) works!

Janusfinder takes some real knockout portraits, but this jumping photo is really amazing.

... which leads to the Jumping Project. Not sure if it's been mentioned or not, but it is such a great group.

There's a new group called Picture Requests, that takes photojournalism one step further. Say you need a pic of dried up Venice? Ask for it in Pic Requests, and someone might respond and make the pic for you. Of course for this group to work, it needs global attention. But I think it's a great idea. More info here.
Velvet G's set "The Unseen War" is an ingenious, imaginative collection of macro photos of toy soldiers presented in a way that's going to blow your mind. In general, this guy does a lot fantastic work, but this particular set is something special.

And please consider giving a plug to the new-but-booming group All Animals. It's an all-inclusive group for photos of any and all non-human fauna.

From the group description: "Animals of all types: furry or scaly, feathered or slimey, large or small, wild or domestic, cute or ugly, cuddly or scary. Anything from otters to elephants, diatoms to whales, hummingbirds to albatross."
caterina 17 years ago

Thanks everyone. As usual, you've really come through and contributed a bunch of amazing stuff here. You guys ARE Flickr!

Yesterday, I met a professional photojournalist from the AJC (Atlanta-Jornal Constitution). He showed me his photos from the last 20 years and his Canon $4,500 Digital Monster.

All I know is that I will study photojournalism at University of Georgia, Athenas at the end of the year and I will not REST until I get on the FlickrBlog!!!


Actually, to respond to this topic, I think "seawallwonder" (amazing photos of Vancouver, Canada) should get an honorable mention or Technicolor Girl, just for being so darn cute, or Efatima, Fubiki, or Tato!

Too many too mention, I am out the door, good morning!

This weekend is packed with political events for the US. There are two protest sites (one is my own, sorry for the plug) that are timely, so i thought i would mention them:

Turn your back on Bush: Express your displeasure with George W.Bush before the inauguration, January 20th.

I ♥ Roe v Wade: post pictures of your support for Roe v Wade before or after the march on January 22nd.

Both would look great on after the events, if we can get loads of people to participate.
