flickrcast - Episode 6

nothing on top but Episode 6 and a mop and an illustrated book about birds...

i [jason] was more hoarse than mr. ed in this episode, so if you hear a lot of drinking noises, that'd be the reason.
links for this episode:

* theme music was Greendome Sheck again, this time with a song called "Alone."
* the flickrcentral thread about what to shoot when it's dreary.
* sam abell's book Seeing Gardens. <-- highly recommended!
* a series of excellent video interviews with sam abell, of whom jason is a complete fanboy.
* bryan suggests these sites for camera discounts: slickdeals.net and gotapex.com
* jason likes B&H and adorama.
* the flickr floatr - it's hyp-mo-tizing!
* some of the pics we turned up with flickr floatr searching yeti:
- guy holding a big dog...
- that same dog has gotten very, very big.
- it just wouldn't be flickr without a cute cat pic.
- or maybe a slovenly cat is more to your liking?
* introduce yourself at this flickrcast group thread.
* the yeti, abominable snowman, and bigfoot pool.

flickrcast group

sometime in the past two days, bryan, i, and MemoryMotel all had the idea that there ought to be a flickrcast group. MemoryMotel set it up, but has since turned over the admining duties to us. the group's just awaiting some new members now, so if you've got anything you want to discuss or anything you want to add to the pool (please read the group description for the type of pics to add), join us at the flickrcast group.

Episode 3[rd time's a charm...]

* this week's theme music was Sunset Room with "Smoke."
* flickr's faq page about photo replacement.

* dpreview's preview of the new Nikon d200 DSLR.
* geotagged images on flickr.

* jason would like to see more of The Grit of Life.
* what's this fractal food we're talking about?
