My Wobbly Weblog

Archive for the ‘Flickr’ Category

I think these are fab and would really like to try more of these tools out properly but not much time now.  My favourites so far are the colour pickr and the montager (though you do have to squint a bit to see what the images really are).  I like the fact that when you hover over individual small pictures in a montager image, you can see a small popup of that image – you could look at one of these for hours!

I’ve really enjoyed this week of 25 things and will definitely use my Flickr account more and upload some of our billions of photos to share with people, as well as have a further play with mashups.  My main frustration this week is that there is a lot to explore with Flickr and it’s been a busy week so I haven’t managed to spend as long on it as I would have liked.

The YSP is a favourite day out for us and my daughter Anna often makes a beeline for this huge sculpture of wrestling men. You can’t see it in this photo, but there are actually 3 men. They are massive and do give you a bit of a turn when you first see them. I like the photo but wish I’d got them in the centre – will have to take a better one next time we go!

Geiranger, Norway

I’d never used Flickr before though I’ve looked at other people’s photos, so I was keen to get going with this one. I’ve chosen a photograph of one of the Fjords in Norway to put on my Blog. I had a brilliant holiday there in 2000 with my husband, staying in the wacky Kvikne’s Hotel on Sognefjord. It was a wonderful, relaxing week and we came back feeling healthier than before the holiday due to the number of mountains we had climbed, the amount of healthy Norwegian smoked salmon we had consumed and the fact that booze was so expensive we had had a practically dry week! One of the fun things about the hotel was that there was a trampoline in the garden – trampolining overlooking the fjord first thing in the morning was a slightly surreal but fabulous experience.
