New Article Available at the GYR Online Journal

Our Tech T.I.P. columnist, Denise Olson, discusses cemetery photos on the popular photo-sharing site, Flickr.

On October 10, 2009, the 4,000,000,000th (yes, that's billion) photo was posted on Flickr.  I love Flickr for many reasons.  It's a fascinating collection of people and places from all over the world.  The growing Commons section is bringing historical images out of the vaults for us to enjoy.  It's a place where people who share the same interests can meet and share their photos.

It's also my backup/archive for all my photos and scanned images.  That includes all the photos I take in cemeteries.  And, it appears that I'm not the only person posting cemetery photos here.  There are more than 1.2 million cemetery photos on Flickr.

Be sure to read the entire article and view some cemetery photos at the Graveyard Rabbit Online Journal.
