Message for my friends

    Newer Older

    Thanks to everyone who messaged me to ask if I'm alright - everything's a bit crazy here in London, I'm stuck in the office and not allowed to leave, but I'm alright.

    Update: wow, the response on Flickr has blown me away - everything's still very scary here, and your messages are much appreciated. I knocked this up in five seconds in MS Paint because I couldn't think of a way of reassuring my Flickr contacts quickly except posting something. Hopefully a hell of a lot of other people in London are reassuring their relatives and friends with the same words.

    Princess Valium, incidental music, and 1 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Unbelievably, the Washington Post has just asked if they can use this image in their Sunday supplement. Wow. Just, wow.

      LOL. Kinda discouraging for you as a photographer, tho, isn't it? All these lovely pics in your photostream, and the one they want is the crude, what MS Paint?, pic.

      Bully for you tho! Simple, to the point, and just enough info to get the message across right quick.

      Wow. Imagine if you had spent a full minute in MS Paint instead of just five seconds!

      Hey Dave -- this has been marked the most 'interesting' photo for July 7th, according to Flickr's new Explore dealy. Congrats! :)

      (That's assuming their little calendar thing doesn't change on each load...)

      Congratulations! This image is Flickr's Most Interesting photo for July 7. Would you please add it to the Interestingness pool? It will be a great addition!

      (Interestingness is a cool new Flickr feature. About Interestingness)

      you know, this is a brilliant illustration that "interestingness" is a community and attention metric, not a quality of photography metric.

      but still, hell of a fine message, even not knowing you! stay safe.

      But it's not in the July 7 Interestingness pool any longer, having been beaten by a bowl of noodles, says it all really.

      Apparently this is the photo and story that's referenced in Clay Shirkey's book Here Comes Everybody
