adaptable building [deleted] says:

My name is Wes and im 18, (19 in two days). I always liked taking pictures, so Flickr seemed rather natural. I started to use it as a way to Archive all of my photographs. I like to photograph nature, waterscapes, macro (though I need to get a macro lens), architecture, children and animals. I used to shoot with a Sony 3.2 MP point-and-shoot. Bought myself a Nikon D70s and I love it.

Hi peole,
I'm from Malaysia. Just join Flickr in May 2005. Even though there are many photo websites around, I like Flickr most.It's a great place to learn, to make friends and to share.After I had joined Flickr, I never look back.I,m a novice in photography and the encouraging comments from Flickrites did help in my photographic experiments. I love macro shots as they reveal the unnoticed beauty, though I have yet to get a macro lens.Since Flickr is such a big community, chances are, photos of some newbies like mine are not noticed at all.Here's one of mine.

My name is Julie. I dwell in the thriving metropolis of Indianapolis. I originally bought my camera for a 6 month sailing trip with my father; however we have now decided against it due to several factors. I will be backpacking through Europe instead.I joined FLICKR originally to share pitures with my family and friends. Nothing I take is particulary grand or related to art. I am interested in people.

Buenos Dias Flickrers (or Flickrites, which is it?) I am a school counselor in a small town in Idaho. I used to own two Pentax K1000s, but had to sell them to pay for grad school. I hope to purchase another camera soon. Since the world of digital cameras has exploded, any recommendations would be appreciated (film or digital?) I like architectural and nature pics, but have resolved to take more people pics.

I'm not much of a photographer, but I do like to decorate my computer's desktop. Visit my flickr page to see a few of my latest desktop snapshots, which celebrate the beauty, simplicity and wonder that encapsulates the world we live in. Always looking to make some new friends, so drop me a line if you visit my page.

Hi,
i am relatively new to Flickr and am enjoying it a great deal. what an amazing database of photographers and their work. wow.

i'm an oilfield worker who stumbled upon a Nikon FG and has developed an express interest in photography and film development(though I have yet to try developing my film).

i would, of course, greatly appreciate it if anybody would look over my photos and let me know what I'm doing wrong, haha.

Hello...

to add a photo you open up the photo you want to add, then select the little icon above it that says All Size. It will list out a couple of sizes to view the photo and you will probably want to select small. Under the photo is 2 listings that look like links. You would probably want to select the bottom one, and copy & past it into your 'Reply to this topic
