BYBS: Flickr Rocks

Japanese Rock Garden  |  (CC)  |  by vgm8383@flickr.com

During the past couple of weeks I have discovered that Flickr kicks major fundament.

I've needed some images for a talk that I've been preparing for some local professional groups. The subject of the images have ranged from two people talking over a "string and cup telephone" to a snail crossing a finish line. I've managed to find them all on flickr.

The really cool thing is that, in addtion to being able to put good quality images in my presentation, I've found amazing, spirit-moving pictures of other stuff there as well. Another image from the same author as the rock garden:

It nice to find exactly what I needed for presentation in one place, but what was better was to find a community of people who are willing to share very, very good work for no reason other than to enrich each others lives. It's stuff like that that really makes my day.

These are amazing. I need to work on a PowerPoint; maybe I'll go there, too.

A wonderful resource for everyone. I love the rock garden. If this drought in Texas keeps up, I will try this instead of grass.

I missed this last week when my brother died but am glad I saw it this time. Beautiful photos you ahve found and definitely a blessing that you could use them with permission form the camera buff. I will come back. . .

Being back at school, I have to make a lot of presentations these days. So, I completely agree with you when you say that it is nice to find all the pictures for a presentation at one place.
