NSID for Flikr

A quick question — anyone know just how to link one’s Flickr to LS so as to extend the gallery?  I want to run a separate series of images through there on an ongoing basis, but I am stumped by the instructions on how to link up — just what is my nsid?  I thought all I had to do was provide the link, but when I did that I got a popup message telling me that the nsid has to be all integers.

Jon :
Ones you have logged  in go to YOURS (top left corner). In your address bar you will see   something like    http://www.flickr.com/photos/81467941@N00/   
The number before @ is you NSID number.
I have no easier way to find it. But it works. Give it a try

Hey Alex, that tip helped me solve the problem, but I couldnt find it just by consulting the address bar, since my "address" is now personalized and reads simply "macocael."  But by viewing the page source in html I was eventually able to locate the actual code and insert it in the LS link field — and voila, now you can see Daily Life in the Anderson family. 

Btw, this is what Flickr says about providing the URL for a specific photo (for anyone who might need such info):

"Some websites will ask you to provide a URL to a photo (for example, when you add a photo to your Blogger profile).

To use this method, you need to provide the web address (URL) of the image itself, not the address of the web page where the image is being displayed.

Here’s an example of a correct URL for a photo:
» http://www.flickr.com/photos/132375_0ca82ae31e.jpg

How is Ecuador?  Must be in the middle of Xmas madness I imagine, same as here.

Sounds familiar, except for the heat.  right now we are enjoying "las brisas de la navidad," so things have cooled down somewhat.  Lights and firecrackers, though, we got plenty.  What is it with Latinos and Xmas?  Sheesh!

But tomorrow I head to the campo, going to cook a huge meal for everyone on Saturday (results will be seen on Flickr), and drink some nice shiraz and malbec from Argentina.  The whole damn city evacuates and the Tapon tomorrow in the street is going to be unpassable.

Mr. A! :)))…love the family pixs….i love family shots, and frankly, I’m totally addicted to all and any family pics/albums…i once had an argument with a russian photographer: said to him, that for me, "family albums" had been more significant and substantial to me than Bresson…and that’s the truth…! :)))…you;’ve a beautiful wife (partner) and children…and, I guess, you aint all half bad either (your profile looks Rummy-red asleep beside your sleeping angel ;))) )……thanks for sharing with us Amigo! :)) cheers, bob

Hey Bob, I share your addiction to family pix, and I always love going through people’s albums.  I have pix of my own family going back to the 19th century, with a particularly dour group shot of the bunch from Sweden in their homestead in Minnesota. 

I started thinking about this family life thing partly because I was idle, partly because I have this digital camera to play with, and partly because I spend most of my time with family, not out  in the cane brakes or other such places that haunt my imagination, so why not shoot the family?  And I kept thinking about Antoine d’Agata’s words that Lina Pallotta brought to the Aphorisms thread:

"It isn’t the eye that photography poses on the world that interests me but its most intimate rapport with that world.  The only photographs that truly exist are the « innocent » images. We find them in the family photo albums or in the police archives. Beyond serving as a simple documentation of reality or of a certain aesthetic sense, they attest to the role of the photographer, of his implication, of the authenticity of his position in that moment. The compositions of light, narrative, are no longer, for me, fundamental problems but superfluous lies. What interests me today in an image? The perspective that has justified the act of photography, the interference of the experience, of the ongoing scene, the texture, the material, the meaning of the self-portrait, of the individual, the incoherence of the unfolding sequence, the maniacal reconstruction of the random experience – the photographs, like words, are meaningless when isolated"

So I thought I would try working on those "innocent" images, without thinking about it too much or trying to make a "statement."  Simply shoot. 

Plus the digital color thing interests me.  The ease of producing a shot is rather intoxicating, and I imagine it is one reason why digital so quickly has supplanted film  (speed and convenience, I am convinced, are the cardinal virtues of developed societies); but while I am enjoying it immensely, I have to say that I find it a rather narrow register to work in, not nearly as expressive as TriX.  It seems very bright and chirpy to me in general.  Course, I have seen good photojournalistic work in digital color — Lynsey Addario’s work in the Sudan, which was chosen for this year’s Moving Walls, is a recent example.   Maybe it is just that I am working down here where the Caribbean light and the colorful houses are all very cheery, but I rather suspect it is something inherent in the medium.

As for rummy red faces, that shot was taken close upon my arrival back home and my skin reacted violently to the sun.  It has calmed down since,but I will treat you to a real rum-red (beer, actually) shot with the next upload.

Hi Jon,
About NSID: Sorry if my answer is too late.
I was asking the same question in Flickr, here was the answer:

by Alfonso de Castro | 29 Dec 2005 02:12 | Zaragoza, Spain | | Report spam→
Hey Alfonso, like I said above, I found the NSID myself by reading the html.  It takes me a bit longer to catch onto this stuff, since I havent grown up with computers like the present generation, but this old dog still has his tricks.  Btw, I wrote an email to Flickr asking them for the code, and they very quickly responded — but with the wrong number!

well, Xmas pix will be up soon.  This thing is going to get so involved I may have to pay for a Pro acct, but I was hoping to avoid that.
