Are we supptosed to upload to Flickr only our masterpieces?
I am often irritated by people who dump onto the site every single shot from their memory card, tons of mindless rubbish containing totally uninteresting stuff, shot with appallingly wrong exposure and focus. I consider this worse than just waste of Web space - making me see page after page of that is an insult.
Yet I act like this myself, sharing shamelessly every stupid thing that I saw somewhere and considered interesting. Oblivious to the fact that nobody else is excited about such subject/s. Unashamed that it's poorly captured and tastelessly processed. Just to keep the 'photostream' going, adding nonsense to the kitsch already there...
Well, this is the elusive fine balance between a photoblog (sharing whatever we've seen) and a gallery (selectively showing stuff of some importance and quality).
I'd be interested in your thoughts on this. But, you know what? Whatever you think, I'll keep doing it. Here's one more :)
