New, Not Improved

150511_004

Do you know what would make me happy? If Flickr went back to the way it used to be – back before Yahoo purchased it and started to make it more and more like Tumblr. I want to hit a next button and wait for a new page. I do not want infinite scrolling. I hate infinite scrolling. It gets laggy and slow after a few page downs. If I click on a picture to see it, when I go back, I go back to the top, not to where I was. Does anyone know some secret way to have the old Flickr? I used to avoid it by using Flickr in Spanish, but they updated the Spanish version to their new horrible system, too. Now they have “improved” it again and it’s beyond irritating. Why do services that people like and use think they need to completely upend their design? When it’s working and popular, why change it?

Into the Light is the theme for this month’s Collabor88. If you love romantic pastels, this is the month for you. Among the highlights are the fabulous top from StoriesYCo by Flowey and this skirt from Tres Blah. The top comes with matching flirty shorts and the skirt comes with coordinating cropped sweatshirts. However, since Collabor88 designers work with a common color palette and theme, it seems that the point is finding new combinations as well. The beautiful quill incense burner is from {anc} and is also from Collabor88. The tea set with books is from dust bunny and was in the March Arcade session.

The shoes are gorgeous romantic flats from fri.day for Collabor88. I redecorated the lovely dust bunny cottage, moving the bedroom out onto the screen porch for the summer. I hung some stars – beautiful lighting from Kalopsia – that are also available at Collabor88. They also made the pink flowers in the large vase. The chairs are from {anc} and both have different poses, though I am using the one to hold the flowers.

My hair is from Tableau Vivant – a lovely messy bob. The skin is Adam & Eve’s Gina applied to the Lotte Lelutka head and the Slink body, hands and feet. The necklace and earrings are from Maxi Gossamer. Please see the next post for the decor details.

    Yes! Completely agree with you, Cajsa. I’m very new to Flickr and haven’t experienced its prior iterations, but there’s enough that frustrates me about its present design that I’ve taken to only browsing Group photostreams through RSS feeds. The feeds are laggy in their own right, in that they update maybe once every 30 minutes, but they’re miles better than infinite scrolling!
