My Flickr upload

orchid

Another imaginative title… I’m full of creative English on this blog 😉

Anyway, this is the image I uploaded to Flickr and tagged for 25 things (but I also tagged it as orchid, flower and pink in case anyone else wants to nosy at it).

The photo wasn’t how I planned – it was Saturday afternoon, and the lighting was a big dank and yukky, so I put the flash on, and got this where it looks like late evening and a bit mad. But, I like that strange brightness on some of the petals, but not on others so here it is 🙂

Using Flickr to blog individual images is rather nice though – very user friendly. It would be nice to be able to blog about multiple images through Flickr as I’m not all that fond of the latest WordPress image uploader (or at least not yet anyway).

Europe 164

This is a statue in Czestachowa, as taken by Cyphon34. I’ve just come back from there, and this is probably the only thing I actually saw of the place while we were staying there! It had a magpie sat on top of it. I’d love to go back and see more of the city though. Anything we did see was usually in the dark, as we travelled between there, the hotel and a tiny place called Kocin. We saw a little of Jasna Gory (sp?!) in the dark, which was impressive enough to make me want to have a look round if we make it back over there for longer. Perhaps I should have looked for photos of Kocin instead? But this is a nice photo 🙂

Fingers crossed!

As a side note, this is the first time I’ve used the blog function on Flickr, as I usually use the blog uploading tools, so I’ve done something new today! Hoorah! 🙂 I already have a Flickr account, as most people doing this probably already know (especially as I’m being very boring and not at all anonymous with my username and blog name ;D), so I’ll have to find a new pic to upload. Don’t be surprised if it is craft related in some way. Or cat related 😀

I’m here :)

Here I am!  I’ve done the blogging thing before, so this isn’t new to me, but I’m looking forward to learning new extra things as this goes along.  And also new blog themes 🙂

I’ve also already got a Yahoo log in, and have surprised myself by having an account on Google, even though I’d clearly forgotten!  I had to activate an email account thought which means I now have a total of 5 (count em!) email addresses, including my work one.  No wonder I forgot I was registered with Google…  Please tell me that 25 Things teaches me how I keep track of them all 😉  Gmail looks rather pretty too – can see why Hotmail did the re-vamp thing.

Anyway, a nice gentle start with these first 4 things – looking forward to the rest of them 🙂
