Airport terminals are special: They have an air of wanderlust, the big, wide world. They can be stressful, but also calm and recreational. In her gallery The Terminal that inspired this post, megoizzy shows us the unique interior of some airports from around the world.
A dazzling display of auroras lit up the far northern skies Tuesday night (Jan. 24) in a supercharged light show…The northern lights show was sparked by an intense solar flare that erupted from the sun late Sunday (Jan. 22). The flare unleashed a wave of charged particles, triggering the strongest solar radiation storm since 2005 (- Yahoo! News)
Flickr members Ben-e-boy and Corinne Mills (Ben’s Mom!) caught the aurora over Dundee, Scotland. A local and national paper found their photos through Flickr and contacted them. Corinne was contacted by the local Dundee Evening Telegraph. Ben’s photos were found by the Scottish edition of the Times and after contacting him his photo was on the front page!
Flickr Pro is already without doubt the best deal on the web for uploading and sharing your photos. Unlimited uploads, unlimited storage, access to your super huge original files, stats on your account and no ads. Flickr Pro means that you can take all the photos you like with all your phones, cameras, celluloid lightboxes, microwave ovens, etc. and store your memories all together in one place for $24.95 per year.
Today we’re happy to announce some Pro pricing changes to make it even better:
For people who would rather pay in smaller increments we’re introducing an option to buy Pro 3 months at a time for $6.95.
We’re also dropping the price of a 2 year subscription to $44.95 (a savings of $10.95 off the 3 months at a time price).
Lastly, we’re also moving to a subscription model where Pro accounts will automatically renew. When your Pro account is near expiration, you’ll receive a reminder from us before it renews and you’ll of course have the option to cancel at anytime.
We hope these changes will make it even easier for members to enjoy all of the fun of Flickr Pro uninterrupted and for less money.
Note: Pro subscriptions purchased before January 25, 2012 won’t automatically renew. (You will have to pay the old fashioned way using that web order form thing like your Grandpa used to back in 2011.)
