ANOTHER STEP ON THE ROAD TO WORLD DOMINATION . . .

Everyone stop only using Google for your image searches, now Yahoo! includes Flickr photos in their image search results. Anyone searching for images with keywords that match the tags on my photos will get to see my magnificent work. I show up in the first page of results for "kumakikai"!

FROM THE SIX-DEGREES-OF-SEPARATION DEPARTMENT:

My grandmother and grandfather are in the index of Decca: The Letters of Jessica Mitford. I have a Postcard of Jessica Mitford:

It was on my dorm wall for years, hence the tape marks. She said I should keep a diary, which I never could until this blog--such as it is.

5,000 HITS, BABY!

Well, it's been less than a year since I went "pro" on Flickr, but I've reached my goal of 5,000 hits. Thanks to all my friends and family, librarians, urban-decay spotters, street art aficionados, people who like giraffes, Flick Twin Cities photowalkers, toy collectors, film buffs, Apple computer advocates, Photoshoppers, and alternative-parade attendees who made this possible. You like me! You really like me!

My new obsession is the Name That Film Flickr group, where people post stills from obscure films or obscure scenes from famous ones. You know I love my movies. I wonder how long it will take me to get 10,000 views?

PS. Can you name the film above?
