Hometown: Seattle, USA
July 10, 2005
What I've gained from the group is the satisfaction that we've had countless events, lots of learning, and at least three marriages come out of our efforts. I'm no longer involved in the group but very very proud to see it continue to grow!
Hearing about it from a lot of people I respect...all positive. 'Flickr is CRACK,' they told me. They were right!
Macros, portraits, landscapes.
LOVE: the community! Flickr peeps generally have an awesome, friendly vibe. HATE: the fact that Yahoo has relaxed its standards and how much porn and how many pervs have gravitated to Flickr. :(
Digital but getting back into film with some older cameras from the 1950s.
I'm an ad agency exec and photography enthusiast. Started the Flickrites in 2005 - we had 2 people show up to the first meetup! Within months, we swelled to 1800 people and multiple meetups per month. Very very proud of this group!
I am continually honored to be a part of this group of positive, fun and funny people. Our group keeps growing in size and closeness, and I am proud in the extreme.
