Over on photoblog, you can create groups where its easy to share your images and create a little community that keeps regular tabs on what each other is doing. I have been part of a community there before which was formed in another forum. I found it fun and you can learn a lot from people all over the world in ways that words alone are more difficult to do. (by group i don't mean the usual group thing that you find on forums). I mean we would be a group by accepting "friends" of each other and checking on fairly regularly on each other. My previous group started off as a 365 days photoblog. People shared what they did with their days, their interests, what their town, house etc looked like. I found that because the people already had an established connection through other mutual interests, the group was really strong. I think we could do something similar. I am not proposing an alternative to PRI but a linked connection. Check out my photoblog if you haven't seen it already or haven't seen a photoblog. YOu can make hte pictures large, comment on each others pictures. Add little notes on the pictures, and write reams of notes as well. You can have it private though i don't know if its possible to share outside the site if you do that. the moderators are helpful in their forum. https://www.photoblog.com/shangrila Lastly if the mods want to move my introduction thread into this forum, i wouldn't mind a bit.
