Visitor/newcomer to Flickr:
Flickr was a powerful website for sharing photos, but navigation may be confusing to the first-timer. For my public-view photos you can start at the Sets(albums) page. A (blue) link is provided to it below this paragraph. Small framed images represent the Sets, [most recent upload first]. The Set title gives indication of the type of contents. Choose one you're interested in and mouse-click on it to open. This produces the introductory page for that specific Set, with thumbnails for a quick overview. Though you can then click on a particular thumbnail to go directly to the photo-page, it's usually better to click the somewhat larger image on the left for the Set's start photo, as most of my shots are in ordered sequence. That should take you to a photo-page which has one large photo. Underneath (scroll down) I've often added some text description. This sometimes includes blue links to other pages of related interest; for example webcams, and Quicktime tour views. Most of my photos are location mapped . Enjoy!
Flickr also has powerful search facilities so that you can select images for specific word tags. E.g: peteshep architecture vernacular

And there's a flickr Tour here:

PREFER viewing in Sets (Albums) to the unrelated backwardness of flickr's Photostream.

To go to my Set/albums page click here:

"Taken On" dates: Due to the fickleness of flickr, some "Taken On" dates, especially pre-digital, aren't always reliable.

Viewing: PC users may like to try the F11 key when viewing, especially in the "View Larger" mode.

Your Photo?:
Eventually, especially in public places, close faces may appear that I do not know. If you recognize yourself in one of my photos here, you may contact me by email so I can send you a copy, or at your request delete it from here.

Geotagged/Mapped photo locations: Most of my photos have been geotag mapped in Flickr from their photo-pages.
Many also include a blue "wikimapia" link in the description. This is set to take you into the location detail in satellite aerial view thus showing the physical context. Furthermore Wikimapia has a drop down so that you can switch to other formats such as Google Map of exactly the same scale and location.
