An image from the TogsQuad visit to the Silk Mill in Derby, UK, last night. The "14-18 Now - Weeping Window" exhibition started life in the grounds of the Tower Of London and is now "on tour".
The exhibition remembers through the poppies all the lives that were tragically lost during that terrible conflict.
Comments and feedback appreciated!

Back in May this year I made my first visit to Chicago from Toronto. As a night photographer, this city has been on one of my top 10 city destinations for night photography. Since I needed some new content for my new online portfolio which I built with Format, I hit the streets armed with my Sony a7r III to catch some night photos of Chicago. The two locations I enjoyed the most had to have been the observation decks on top of Willis Tower and the John Hancock Building. I was able to get some pretty incredible photos from up there!
What top destinations do you guys have for night photos? Looking for some cool suggestions for my next trip! I need to fill up my portfolio some more
There are some important changes coming that may affect you. Please read carefully.
Requiring TLS (https):
Effective June 11th, 2018, SmugMug will begin requiring all API traffic to be secured using standard TLS 1.1 (or greater) encryption. For most platforms, this should be as simple as switching your API endpoints from
https://api.smugmug.com/ but may require additional work if you are using out of date software.
Upgrading API version:
In an effort to ensure we continue to provide the best possible experience for developers, we are going to be disabling two of our older legacy API versions. Developers looking to leverage the most current features SmugMug offers will need to consider moving to our APIv2 platform. An easier path for some developers will be to migrate to API 1.3, which has a very similar syntax to the older API versions.
The timeline for turning off the old API versions is:
- API 1.1: May 21st, 2018
- API 1.2: June 11th, 2018

SmugMug + Flickr together at last.
We are thrilled to announce that SmugMug has acquired Flickr. We couldn’t be more excited to unite two brands that share the same mission, passions, and values.
In a way, our communities existed long before our brands were established. Photographers have always found ways to connect with one another to share their passion, work, and inspiration. Both SmugMug and Flickr were born from a passion for photography and a mission to support the community we were already a part of.
For 15 years, SmugMug has built products that reflect exactly what we believe: that photography is the global language of storytelling. Flickr is the other side of the same coin. Since 2004, they’ve established themselves as a home where photographers can go to inspire and be inspired, to share, learn, meet new friends, and share a piece of the soul that unites us all: storytelling.
Together we are home to the creators, the shutter pressers, the doers and makers. We’re home to you. Home is where you can hang your hat and kick up your feet. It’s also where you can go to work on your passion. Relax. Reload. Refine. Bring your authentic self. Dare to risk and grow.
