Friday Flickr Forum

Posted by Jerrold Litwinenko / December 7, 2006

As usual, when I browsed submissions in the blogTO Flickr pool today, I came across several wonderful photographs. While so many of them are visually pleasing, some tend to have straight-forward interpretations and others seem to tell more elaborate stories. Some arouse curiosity to a great extent and make the viewer want to learn more. An idea was born...


The blogTO Friday Flickr Forum will be a weekly sampling and dialogue about photographs taken and art made by our readers (photos of your paintings, sculptures, and other works are welcome as well).

Each Friday starting on December 8th (tomorrow), we'll post a selection of images that have recently been submitted to the blogTO Flickr pool. We'll invite our readers and the photographers/artists to participate in discussions about their work using the comments on blogTO.

This isn't meant to be artsy fartsy nor is it meant to be technical (although it may at times go there). It's really meant to be all about interaction and sharing images and stories. If you submit anything that looks even remotely interesting it may end up here.

You could be the next to be featured in the forum!

Where/when was it taken/made?
What's the story behind the work?
What inspired the photographer/artist to create it?
Does the creation represent the overall style of the photographer/artist?

Here's a chance to have your work seen and discussed by many Torontonians.

Please continue reading for instructions on how to contribute...

How to participate as a viewer:
- check out blogTO on Fridays for the week's selections
- make comments or ask questions about the photographs

How to participate as a photographer:
- continue taking photos and submitting to the blogTO Flickr pool
- if your photo is selected, we'll give you a heads up by Flickr mail
- make comments or answer readers questions about your photographs on blogTO

Double-awesome. It's cool that we have the latest photo listing on the sidebar, but for those who don't check the group that often this'll be a great place to have a nice weekly wrapup. Brava.

I've FlickrMailed an invite to 6 photographers that recently made some intriguing contributions to the pool. I hope that they'll stop by and tell us about thier photographs in the upcoming week :)

Great idea Jerrold! Looking forward to it...
jerrold / December 7, 2006 at 06:20 pm
Thanks, Tyson. Hopefully we can get a nice dialogue going throughout the week, and showcase the work of Toronto's many talented photography professionals and enthusiasts alike (yourself included, of course) :)

What's cool is that this concept isn't just about skilled photography... it's as much about what the photo shows! You don't have to be a photography whiz to be featured. We want people to share their stories :)

Hey fellow bloggers. My name is Gabe and I am honoured that the blogTO team, namely Jerrold selected my Ho Ho Ho Santa shot for the blogTO Flickr Forum. It was taken at Eaton Centre just before the madness. I have looked at the same spot few times as I thought it's a perfect spot just to capture people walking by several flights below you. But this time it was Santa sitting there with kids. And once processed, thought the focus could be just on Santa and the child, using the fake tilt shift technique.<p>

I've been doing photography a bit less than a year now. I document the city and events as they happen in our fab Toronto and surroundings. Gotta love our city!<p>

Greetings to everyone from eastern europe (where I am currently for few more days) and wishing my fellow bloggers Happy Shooting in 2007.

Hey fellow shooters,

Ossington and Bloor Cheese was taken last week while hunting for stencils for my street art archive on flickr.
I am constantly astounded by the art that graces our streets but saddened but how quickly it gets disappears behind another poster or erased by paint.

I have been taking photos in Toronto for about 15 years, I mostly publish my images in Brick, a literary journal.

See you in the streets and tyank you including my photo in your roundup.

So I was off work and surfing and found this place and thought I would join up. I don't have much more to say right now except I need to start reading some of the older posts to get up to speed before I can start posting.
