Photo Site – Defection

In light of the security news coming from Yahoo (500m passwords and security questions leaked, installing a rootkit allowing “anyone” to access all your mails) I’m doing all I can to cut my ties with them.

Flickr is the problem – I need to keep this active as this is the mechanism to publish photos to the parkrun website. However I will no longer be posting any “personal” photos to Flickr going forwards.

In the future please have a look at my 500px page rather then my flickr page if you want to see my photos.

Please bear with me as I’m getting to grips with both a new photo site and a new camera.
