Thanks Yahoo!

Thanks Yahoo!

The recent changes to Flickr have brought negativity from some photographers towards Yahoo!, and I understand that. Honestly, I really do. But I have many reasons to be grateful to Yahoo!

Last year the Yahoo! Profiles team selected my Textured Rainbokeh photo as one of the default backgrounds for their service. That was very nice of them.

A few months ago the Yahoo! Weather app team used one of my cloud photos to visualize the weather here in Austin, Texas. Neat!

And a few weeks ago a team at Yahoo! Studios invited me to New York City to be interviewed about my photography on Flickr. The result of that session, a video profiling me, has been posted to the Flickr Blog and to The Weekly Flickr today.

I would like to thank Yahoo! for celebrating my silly little corner of Flickr. It is appreciated.

  1. Thanks for the positivity JD – granted, you have quite a bit to be happy about! — But I still think the Flickr staff deserves a nice round of applause for the efforts they are making on the site and on our experience.

  2. wow that is SO COOL!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Congratulations on being featured, you take photography to new levels of awesomeness!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I saw the blog… I must admit I took a bit of a double take because at first I thought it was one of the group updates until I noticed it was something the whole Flickr world would see! Well done and well deserved!
