Me, Myself & I… Five Years Later
Many, many years ago, I used to post self-portraits to Flickr. I think the original idea was because I never used to like seeing myself in pictures. I am quite introverted and while I don’t think I have a low self-esteem, seeing myself never made me particularly comfortable. I had hoped that pushing myself outside of my comfort zone would help, and by-and-large, I think it did.
Anyway… fast forward a few years and my Flickr credentials have long expired. I can no longer log-in due to expired email addresses and unhelpful Yahoo people, or whoever owns Flickr these days. But for fun, I took a picture of myself today, using the same computer that took most of the originals I uploaded.
The most recent photo I uploaded to Flickr was in late-2010.
Boy have I aged!
No shit! Right, so I can no longer login to Flickr; the email address I registered with is no longer, and because I haven’t logged in for such a long time, Flickr is asking for a code verification, of course is sent to the registered email address. However, on my old Macbook Pro, I used an uploader program to simplify the upload process. And it still works! I just uploaded the above picture to my account. Hmmm, how to convince Yahoo to let me in to my account…
