So, I've finally gone and done it! I've made the first step in making ipernity my photographic home for the foreseeable future! I've gone and joined the ipernity Club!

In the end, it was an easy decision to make! Although I have many really good contacts over on flickr, some of whom have become good friends over the last seven years I've been there, I can no longer support Yahoo in their complete destruction of my once favourite place to hangout on the web.

Yahoo are taking flickr in a direction that doesn't interest me. Tumblr and Instagram already exist, and flickr is becoming more like these sites every day. The photography community seems to be dying a slow death as Yahoo make it increasingly difficult for people to meaningfully interact with each other. It's a very sad state of affairs!

I've been hanging out more and more on ipernity over the last month or so, and have started to build a good community of friendships - most of them new, but some with fellow flickr regugees! Over this time, and some initial stumbling about the place, I've largely enjoyed the experience, hence I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a membership!

So there you have it. Here I am, for at least the next 24 months, and hopefully for much longer!

See you around...
