|my very first photo posted on Flickr | Dubrovnik, Croatia 2004|
Inspired by something my friend Lorena posted on Instagram earlier today, I have decided to more or less stop updating my Flickr photostream. I will continue to only use it as backup. My archives will be available though, although I'm contemplating making them private - just to have one less online thing to worry about. Also, I feel like there is so much spam commenting and weird accounts going on these days.
I love the instant sharing of everyday moments that Instagram provides. But I still love to share my other photos too, the ones taken with my "real" cameras instead of my iPhone. That is why I have this blog. I don't need Flickr too for those photos. Less is more.
I might still use Flickr to discover new amazing photographers (if there are still any of them using Flickr at all), especially by checking my favorite photographers' favorites. I do this kind of "favorites hopping" much, much less than before. I used to love it! Here are my favorites.
What are you thoughts on Flickr versus Instagram?
