Widening My Horizon

Well what an exercise that turned out to be. Like the cheetah who is searching for something out there beyond the confines of his territory, I felt like I was very much looking beyond the realms of my world when I went searching for a photo in flickr that I could turn into a jigsaw.
There are many very talented photographers storing their images for all to see, but I also felt that I did not want to use someone elses photo in this exercise. I love photography and have quite a collection of family photos stored on my home computer so finally decided I would save some of my own family pictures, taken at Orana Park Zoo into flickr, so I could "play around" with them......and Yes it was fun!!

finding my way around flickr

This task should have been simple enough........Unfortunately the prior claims of teenage sons and husband to the home computer over the weekend meant that my time was rushed and I didn't get to explore the photo cites on flickr as thoroughly as I would have liked. I ended up feeling a bit "snarly", so when I saw the photo of the angry lion I felt complete sympathy with his sentiments. My teens demands of "when are you getting off the computer?" and "have you finished yet?" are akin to having ones tail bitten!!!!

Now that I have had a chance to look at different photo cites, I think it is great to be able to see so many great photos, there is certainly alot of "talent" out there.

Small Beginnings

Whew I have made it at last in to the world of blogging. This second task of the web 2.0 training programme has been accomplished after much indecision and delay. Like the rabbit in the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland I was thinking that I would be too late!
Now that I am here with this white canvas before me and the time to write I find myself feeling very relieved that the process was in fact not hard at all and I now look forward to finding the time to continue on this journey.
