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.

This unlikely squad has also been spotted in these locations:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

Batman is a superhero appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. He was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939). The rich industrial, playboy, and philanthropist Bruce Wayne, having watched his parents murdered as a child, swore to protect Gotham City from criminals by honing his physical and mental skills to the peak of human perfection. The Dark Knight’s costume varies but typically includes a cowl with bat-like ears, a scalloped cape, a utility belt, and a stylized bat emblem on the chest. He is often depicted as part of the Justice League superhero team along with Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and others. The character was played by Adam West in the television series Batman (1966), voiced by Kevin Conroy in Batman: The Animated Series (1992), and played by Christian Bale in a series of films directed by Christopher Nolan starting with Batman Begins (2005).
Iron Man is a superhero in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was first seen in Tales of Suspense #39 (1963). The character was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck, and Jack Kirby. The rich industrialist and engineer Tony Stark developed a powered suit of armor to escape a kidnapping plot and went on to use progressively refined armor to protect his corporate empire Stark Industries and fight crime as Iron Man. Iron Man has been portrayed in several films by Robert Downey, Jr., including Iron Man (2008) and The Avengers (2012).
