Goodbye Flickr

I closed my old Flickr account that I opened back in 2002. Too many changes, too little attention to the right things, too much Yahoo. Flickr couldn’t decide what it wanted to be and its lack of focus doomed it in the age of cameraphones. I’m on 500px now and couldn’t be happier.

Not that it matters given my extremely limited page views but all of my old photo posts with Flickr-hosted images will no longer display correctly. I should probably fix that but it doesn’t really seem worth the effort. A couple of my photos were linked to by a couple of sites but all of those links are old and it’s doubtful anyone will notice.
