Intro + Display

I describe Flickr Walkabout like this when I request permission to post an image:

"I include only images from Flickr, and only the most artistic ones I can find, with minimal commentary. It is intended as a showcase of fine imaging art, with all styles and subjects included."

Flickr is a source of high quality images if one looks in the right places. Pro, "semi-pro" and "advanced amateur" artists maintain active sites, and there are many Flickr Groups where work of astounding craftsmanship is displayed.

Images are shown with the permission of the artists--no exceptions--with no Copyright assumed by the blog. The images are imported using Flickr's "Blog This" tool. Blogger and Flickr cooperate to make this part flow easily, with uniform formatting and credit to the artist guaranteed by the process. Each image has links to it's unique Flickr page (click the Title or the image itself) as well as to the member's Flickr Profile (click the Artist's Name).

At least one Category Label is assigned upon posting. The entire list of categories is shown at the top of the right hand column. For those of you who know that a specific type of imaging art interests you, find and click the Label.

The following images are included as examples of what I respond to, and as part the blog's 2 Year Anniversary; the display features images posted over that time.

Since the very beginning I've been proud to have the support of Manas Dichow. He gave me complete access for blogging as well as the image used in the Flickr notification icon. His work in Fractals has taken the form to the next level. It's one thing plug equations into software.....quite another to be in control of the process. There is a sense of energy in the best of his creations, with a love of color melded with truly fascinating forms. I have given his work a separate category.
