Flickr has been around since 2004. Yahoo bought the company from its husband and wife founders a year later, and pretty much ran it into the ground. Verizon bought Yahoo and things got worse. Then, SmugMug bought Flickr. I know the people who run both companies and they are all hard-working, dedicated, sincere, people. SmugMug bought Flickr to save it but most likely underestimated the cost of hosting six BILLION photographs in very high-resolution.
One of the things I tend to take for granted in my Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera is how quiet it is. Even when I don’t use silent shutter mode, it barely makes a sound.
I was given a stark reminder of why it’s important last week when I was photographing birds in southern Texas.

I flew to McAllen, TX. This is my third trip to the Valley to photograph birds. Each trip, this one included, has been amazing. The variety of species here is really fantastic. Having lots of chances at different birds compared to what I usually see, challenges me and thrills me all at the same time
If you’ve been reading my stuff for a while or attended one of my photo workshops, you’ve no doubt heard some of my little photography sayings. If you haven’t, get ready, because here are some of my favorites. Each is an attempt to drill down to the most basic tip I can come up with to immediately improve someone’s photography. Note that I am not claiming any of these are original, although I think a few of them are. They are things I have picked up over the years reading great works by great photographers like Ansel Adams for instance.
