Flickr

I was looking at Flickr. Trying to find some information on some lens I read about. Its a strange environment. There are nice images on there. Some not my thing. There’s such a mixture of approaches. A morass. No space between things. What does it say? Intent and purpose? Sharing things yes. Things missing too. The idea. The concentration. The seriousness. Does it sell an image short?
Good for sharing but a poor setting.
All these images. They are not presented as ideas or as bodies of work. Visual noise? A few tunes in there someplace.

It reminds me of the importance of the idea, of the overview. That’s what makes the difference. The vision/the intent that’s what you have to make and trust. The idea & the image need to come together.
