I was thinking the other day about the first images that people upload to Flickr. Why that image? Why Flickr? (I was also thinking that it would be nice to start a group in Flickr for the first uploads, but somebody has already done it: Your first photo in Flickr.)
It could have been any of the four photos I uploaded on May 18th 2006 or some other picture from the same series. Why it was just this one I can’t say. It just was.
I was at the time noticing a shift in my photography and what I needed was a place to collect my experiments. And after some contemplation I found myself liking the simple UI and the fact that there were people there, and pictures. So I decided to give Flickr a try. Been there since then.
How about you?
