I spent the first few years of my cyber life wandering looking for something that satisfied my creative itch in photography. Most sites in 2004 were pretty vanilla. The content being fairly predictable tropes. Being a virtual newbie to the online space I didn't connect much anywhere. Then flickr came along. I promptly paid for the pro level account and never looked back. Here I am 16 years later still forking out my annual subscription. Except now I use it to also backup all my jpegs too. It is my home away from home and the place I spend most of my online existence. Admittedly the 'community' got the life sucked out of it by Facebook and then instagram but hey I like hanging around in there and the images I ave backed up are tucked away and I'm not fed ads or do they use my data in a way that offends me.
