"In Saudi Arabia, this is the way men say hello to each others. If the man they meet is an old one, they also kiss his head, like Laurent Blanc used to do with Barthez, for the football fans! Because of the H1N1 flu, health prevention panels ask people to avoid this kind of "kiss".
I've tried to organize my pictures with sets and collections on Flickr, but it's not easy. I'll probably have to go back through each of my 5+ years of pictures there, and improve classification in sets and collections, titles, descriptions, tags, geo-tagging (manually...), people in them, etc.
My idea is that I'd like to publish a little book (on one of those online services) with my best shots. I did a first attempt on the slideshow above, but please give me a hand in selecting the ones you like, the ones I missed and that I should add back.
There are a number of ways you can help:
- send me an email or leave a comment below with the list of pix you like (yes! feel free to browse through all of them, or just a selection),
- use Flickrs 'favourite' feature. You can also leave a comment under each picture you like: Flickr's interestingness feature will pick them up automatically as well. With enough comments from you all, the best pix should stand out.
- feel free also to leave a comment about how you would have taken the shot differently; I am learning every day about digital photography: tips, composition, exposition, software...
- finally, you can also help me identify which Flickr Group I should be submitting a picture to, so that they get more traction.
Hopefully, the book will be out by end of March 2010 :)
