This photo below I found particularly interesting!
I have been a member on Flickr for over 10 years. Only in these past few years have I used it extensively, keeping my entire artist inventory on it, for example, as well as albums of my best photos.
A couple of days ago, I entered a photo I took in Portugal into the group
Your Best Shot 2019, a official Flickr contest.
My holiday in Portugal - July 29th to August 26th 2019.
Mosteiro da Batalha, Agust 5th 2019
I shot many views of this great place, carefully setting up the shots for the best possible view. But this one is a snapshot I took quickly of a visitor walking through this architectural marvel, totally engrossed in her smartphone!

After perusing the other entries (there are as of this writing almost 8000) I decided to make my own collection of what I find is the best. So I started a curated gallery - and I think in time it will be growing. There are many talented photographers on Flickr. Below see my Exceptional Photos Gallery:
Advance photos with the arrow on the right edge -
if you click the photos, they open in a separate tab on Flickr, where you can enlarge them.
So far, I have 3 galleries - this one you see above, and two art related ones.
I might just start a few more in future.

This blog is primarily art related - for my photography please go to
