Fame At Last!

Wouldn't it be nice to be the best at something? Not just to have magazine articles featuring your work, but whole issues devoted to your genius? Photography is a hobby that I enjoyed years ago that I have rediscovered, largely due to the emergence of digital photography and the inspiration provided by the website Flickr. I'm nowhere near good enough to make a living at photography, far less be one of the "photographic greats", but a man can dream can't he?

Flickr now has more than 20 million pictures, and a million members, providing a huge database of images. There are several tools on the web that have been designed by Flickr members and use images from the site. The magazine cover shown uses one of my photos as a backdrop, and was designed using this tool.

Don't those articles look fascinating?
