Like everyone else in the world, I tend to be lazy sometimes. Especially when we have limited internet and I just feel in a rush to get my latest photos online. They go up with not so great titles, captions, sometimes no tags whatsoever and little description. Sometimes I don't even bother putting them on my map, or even in a set. It's sad because when I go to find a picture I know I have and can't... I know it's my own damn fault. If I hadn't been lazy in the first place, I wouldn't be having the trouble now.
So... I've been spending a bit of time every day correcting these lazy mistakes. I'm making better titles that aren't all the same... and I was extra proud of this photo's title I came up with. Yes, it really is, "Feeling blue? I yam." I must have sat in my seat giggling about it for a few minutes at least. And then even more so after I told Dave about it across the table.
I'm quite proud for my cleverness and sure there will be more to come so keep a look out for all new titles, descriptions, even mapping out my photos (aka "geo-mapping") but I only do that to the city, not the GPS coordinates because, well, I find that creepy.
Check out my insane amount of parrot images here at my flickr.
