Rosa observes rice planting in Saga, Japan
Image by SCSpaeth via FlickrThe Zemanta blogging service helps me reconsider the value of a Flickr account. I established a Flickr account, SCSpaeth, several years ago and added pictures periodically. But I have never made much use of the pictures. While pictures can add to the interest in a blog post, finding images, adding them to the blog and documenting them properly took a lot of effort. So, I only added them when they added enough to compensate for the extra work.
The Zemanta service changes the barriers to using more images. I scanned a photocopy of a paper print of this image so the quality needs to improve. Now, it seems worth the effort.
