I'd just like to use this space to say how I thoroughly dislike the new profile page foisted on us by the Flickrbook® from Yahoo!® designers. Yahoo has smashed Flickr, and all its loyal users. WTG peeps. The new group stuff was the last straw.

As for me, well, I'm just a dog on the InterWebNets.. yep, that's me........... with toy cams, that is.

Jakey's lessons to live by:

We all need to use more FILM, Eh?
Focus is highly overrated.
Less is more, in most photography situations. And in life.

    "jakes_world is a girl. a fun one. a one-one-one-away. she used to be an admin at the sty, until some members stabbed her in the back. traumatized, she took time out to discover herself. eat, pray, love.

    now she's back. kind and forgiving. just plain o'l jakes. her stream has improved by at least 217% since i've known her. i highly recommend others consider following her. she loves to be followed, so stalk her. stalk her good. i lurv jakes — and you should too."

    "Jakes is a former surfer babe who now tends bar in the Pig Sty, where she serves up cold beers and stiff liquor drinks. Meeting Jakes in person is on my bucket list. Until then, I will just keep on enjoying her friendly banter in the bar, while pondering all of the vintage shots in her stream (the beach ones are my fav, as I am a surfer babe at heart too)."

    "Carla is a paradox: friendly and forgiving, yet willing to suffer a broken ankle to make a stand against Almond's nagging. Word has it, after she broke her foot in his ass she left behind a little toe. You'll be hard pressed to find any active group on Flickr that doesn't have Jakes_World as an administrator. She is the paste that keeps us stuck together."

    "Jake`s World where you`ll find a good heart , great smile and a photographer`s eye . don`t let Hipster cameras fool you . this girl knows what`s she doing whether it`s with film or a camera phone . it`s all about the image stupid !! ........................oh and did i mention she`s as funny as a big funny thing on sale in the once in a lifetime funnyshop ??? well she is

    too quote Aaron Siskind : “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

    and that just about sums up Jake`s World so if you skip her photo stream you can`t say you weren`t warned ................

    "6 months ago, I asked myself, "What is a Jake's World" and how does she get 1,000 views on out-of-focus pics taken with with a disposable camera? I think she was gone for a while, and then came back with a vengeance. 6 months later and I've given up trying to figure out the Jakes_World phenomenon, and just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Speaking of enjoying the ride, Jakes seems to have lots of "friends with benefits" of both sexes. We've yet to meet in person, but sometimes I wake up and look outside and think I see her in the shadows, and in the morning when I check, there are empty beer cans and bottles of Mad Dog."

    She may be a Gator, but dont hold that against her. I imagine she did a lot of drugs when choosing her school. I also like to imagine her wearing a sock monkey suit and screaming at children. Sometimes I imagine she is a viking, and she is hollering at her oarsmen, sweat trickling from her bosom.......

    "'Jakes World' For anyone who knows Jakes, these two words are synonymous with the words 'What If'

    What if... you were to take elements of the 2001 cult classic movie 'Donnie Darko' and combine them with 'Elmo's Word', with Elmo being played by Donnie Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal?

    This is the no-less-than-ambitious, thought provoking, moral and philosophical question raised by Jakes, through her compelling and sometimes controversial photostream 'Jakes World'. Unquestionably the most important work of this era!"

    ""Better late, than a dead rabbit." That was the instruction manual for Carla's first camera/lunchbox. Jakey has shown me that it's harder than it looks when it comes to the world of LoMo photography. Any buffoon can snap a 100 shots with a P+S and get lucky, and maybe even end up with a decent image, but it takes someone like my pal here, to reverse the process. Please do yourself a favor and visit the land of this lovely lady and friend. One of these days, my dog is gonna sniff your dog's, butt."

    "Jakes may not know this. But (s)he's one of my main reasons for logging on to this place every day.
    Jakes is a funny soul and very few people notice this while looking at her photos. I bet she doesn't even notice herself.
    Actually I think that I might be the only one who noticest this.
    Jakes' photos are stuffed with little details that make me laugh inside. When there's very little sunshine in my life, I only have to sift through Jakes' photostream. Then I'm as good as new.
    But does that make her a good photographer? (Which apparently is a very important thing to be)
    Some might say no and some might say yes.
    Since I've allready forgotten what the question was, I join the "yes-side"."
