Over 62,000 pictures in the Readers Flickr Pool
We have another new milestone in the Readers Flickr Pool. Over 62,000 pictures submitted by photographers like you. As usual, we mention the milestone picture, picture #62,000, Neko Case in Concert at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, captured by photographer Joel Williams using the Olympus E-M1 and the 75mm f1.8 prime lens.
Since Flickr introduced a new feature, Flickr picture embedding (similar to how you embed YouTube videos), we are adding a new feature to the milestone posts, Flickr-embedding the milestone picture using the Flickr embed feature.
This new Flickr embed feature is also a great opportunity to feature more of the Readers Flickr pool work. We will experiment with it in the next few weeks. If you have any ideas, suggestions or feedback, use the online contact form or leave a comment below or tell us or DM us on Twitter...
If you are not familiar with the Flickr Readers Pool, you can check the details (three paragraphs) after the break...
The Readers Flickr Pool is a place where photographers of all experience levels and camera types share their pictures. Everyone is welcome to join and submit up to five pictures per day. You can share your experimental pictures, your masterpieces, your latest pictures, your cat pictures, your outtakes, you decide! This is not an 18+ group, so please do not submit adult-themed pictures.
Recent additions to the flickr pool are featured on the front page (and index pages) of this blog. We do not store the pictures on this blog or elsewhere - they are displayed using standard flickr widgets provided by flickr (the flickr badge), and maintained by flickr. You can add or remove your pictures at any time by adding them or removing them from the flickr pool and you can also join/leave the Flickr Pool at any time and for any reason.
Thanks to a new Flickr feature, there is now a nice Flickr Members page [you must be logged on to a Yahoo account that has an associated Flickr account in order to see these] showing square thumbnails of all the members participating in the flickr pool. This is a never-ending scroll page, so you keep pressing "Show more members" at the bottom to see them all. According to that page, photographer Mike Gavin was the first to boldly join this Flickr Pool when it started!
