We are looking forward to seeing how the freshly revamped Flickr photography site – flickr.com – develops in 2019. We are also looking forward to seeing how good friends and wonderful strangers adjust to the revised Flickrverse.
That said, here are some of our fave accounts – ones that continue to tell stories in a visual manner. They bring the epic and the day-to-day into focus. Here are some wonderful places photographed by locals and travelers around the world.

What we would love to see
More Flickr photos / artwork with attribution-sharealike licenses, particularly from institutions and agencies. It would be much easier to publish features about parks and places to visit with photos we are legally able to use on this site.
What we would love to discuss
Our conversations about Flickr continue. We also are sussing out the nature of photography and how best to digitize (or not) older photos and videos. We encourage the use of photos and videos from friends who run travel and tourism services, but what works best for whom? Again a point of discussion for the year, starting with Responsible Travel Week in February.
