  1. Is there any way, when you post a Flickr photo, to include the legend in the blog? Otherwise, we have to click on the photo and go to Flickr to find out what the photo is?


  2. Hi Clement

    I used to do this until I realized that when I posted specific info of the locations of photos I uploaded to the blog, some would use this to go to abandoned houses or buildings and try to enter them. I've had several experiences a few years ago over this (including one which forced me to temporarily stop uploading to Facebook). So now I just publish the photos with the least amount of info. The info is still available at Flickr but most people don't go to Flickr. It's to avoid any possible bad comeback, which did happen a few times years ago. I could do this to photos with buildings like this one but if I do it for a few photos everyone would expect me to do them for all photos, including houses and other private property.

    Thanks for your interest.

    1. Yeah, I understand what you mean. I myself have been tempted to do this whenever you post photos of AMF (The Pointe-Saint-Charles railyards), where I used to work in the early 90's.

      Thanks for maintaining this blog by the way. You have a great eye.
