I just upgraded to a pro account on flickr a couple of hours ago. Finally.

It's one of those things that I've tossed onto my "to do" list several times, only to take it right back off because I figure I won't use it enough to make it worth the cost. I don't take that many pictures and most of the ones that I do take aren't anything special.

It's something to do though. Something creative, something enjoyable, a hobby of sorts – which is why I just tossed money at it. Hopefully that small investment will cause me to become a bit more proactive with my camera encouraging me to look at things differently. Hopefully I'll start taking better pictures. 🙂

A good chunk of the people reading this probably already know where to find my seldomly updated pictures, but for anyone else that may be curious, or bored, or whatever, here's a link to my flickr page.

    Hooray! Flickr is lots of fun! I'm glad to see you upgrading to the pro. When I was pre-pro, I was always stressed about getting to that 250 photo limit. Now it's like, 10-lane highway, baby!

    My Google Reader will be very happy when you post new photos. In fact, I wish I could assign a filter that makes a WOOOO-HOOOO sound whenever you post new photos.

    200 picture limit now. I've been on flickr since before they even HAD a paid option. I've been on flickr since it had "Beta" next to it's logo. Almost 3 and a half years.. and I don't even have 300 pictures up. 😛

    When you become a flickr pro, you also get a ninja headband. Did yours arrive in the mail yet?
