My Reason For Doing Flickr
Folks use Flickr in a number of ways...and none of those is wrong. Most just don't work for me. Once I learned the ins and outs, the whole thing was about getting my photos seen...by as many as possible.
I know that in most cases they are viewed for only a few seconds, and that may seem pretty superficial and inconsequential. Suppose so...but over time some people remember the photos, the style...maybe even the photographer's 'name'.
At any rate, for me it is about VIEWS. And this is where I am on that right now.
