I was leaving the dreaded post office yesterday where I was shipping prints to clients abroad when I got stuck in the rain with no umbrella and worse, no camera. I was momentarily devastated but then I remembered my iPhone and the fact that my Nikon would have gotten soaked.
After a very wet, gray and seemingly uneventful week filled with chores and errands and way too much paper(less) work, I am very much looking forward to the long weekend. We're headed to the beach and I'm hopeful that we get some sun so our girl can do what she loves best...play and run in the sand. But come to think of it, sometimes the rain is quite beautiful and I rather like it. Except maybe not for the next few days. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and here are some fun links.
A DIY I actually want to try!

How Yahoo killed Flickr
This article made me sad. For one, it's true and secondly, I'm indebted to Flickr for inspiring me to do this photography thing full-time. I am one of those people who uses Flickr right now simply for storage and as host to the images that I share here on the blog. But when I first started using it, pre-Facebook, my blog, Twitter and Instagram, it was the only place where I shared my photos. I don't really use it to engage with users or followers anymore but I'm so thankful for the friendships that I made there and for all the inspiration.
