Thanks to Christi over at Sweet Pea Path for turning me onto the DianaPhotoApp and to Art of Mob (on instagram)! And, for saying she DETESTS the ‘new flickr’. I actually understated how much I have disliked the updates. They really kinda ruined the experience for me. For instance? I can no longer post directly to wordpress. Writing this simple post with photos from flickr is a nightmare. https://www.flickr.com/photos/clothcompany/14990047904/
The Nor’easter continues here with wind and rain. Nothing too drastic, but some branches down here and there and pools of water on the roads. Two maple branches blew into our yard from somebody else’s trees — I can’t quite figure out whose!
What a shock to find more than 18,000 views on this picture! The pleasing (and to me, astronomical) number was the result of flickr posting the image to their “Explore” gallery.
It came at a time when I’ve been reconsidering flickr. I’ve adjusted to their new format, I have. But, I don’t enjoy going there so much anymore and I don’t groom the way I used to — don’t always bother to populate my albums, add tags, see that there are comments, never mind respond to them.
Don’t look to it for connections. Been thinking that instagram might better suit. [I also found myself wondering in a paranoid flash, “Wouldn’t it be really, really creepy if flickr somehow KNEW I was ready to bail?!!”]
Anyone else? Where do you put your pictures, with what expectations and what results? Where do you find connection? Have you switched platforms in the last few years? Is blogging dead?
As for the picture, it is another weaving study that came out of Jude‘s most recent online class. Below is a pictorial narrative. I am hoping to make nine woven patches in the cloth. Third of nine, in progress: This morning, a fall wind blows warm air around. The tail end of last week actually found me putting the heat on. Thankfully, a sweater will do today.
P.S. The vintage linen base came out of my 2012 indigo pot. The dotted indigo fabric and the indigo threads woven in — from recent weekend in South Carolina.
