I'd never given much thought to the photographs I'd been taking all my life, and had no idea where I might find them, anyway. Having discovered Flickr accidentally toward the end of November last year, I've found that I've become more disciplined and have certainly gone from "nothing" to "a little" in my photographic skill level.
I said once, recently, that in order to be an artist, one must appreciate his own work, because it's possible that no one else will. I could never be an artist (I've never been able to appreciate my art work), but I'm "sorta" beginning to appreciate my photographs. I expect to improve, and increase as time goes by.
