So long Flickr, and thanks for all the pix

Flickr hosted all my photo-needs for 11 long years from 2005-2017. But because of its sharp decline and poor usability, I decided to leave Flick last year and move all my images over to SmugMug. A year later: my Flickr Pro account has now expired, all 10,300+ photos have been moved to SmugMug, and re-categorized by year! To celebrate, here are 14 photos, selected purely because of cold, hard facts from Flickr.

    Can I just say I love Rachel in that last photo. She’s like a pirate flower child. The sunglasses are perfect. (Also, that was a fun day.)
