Be Careful Little Eyes....

flickr now has a new "safe" filter you can enable to protect your exposure to images you'd rather not see. I discovered this when looking through our family flickr acct. I clicked on a set from our friend's beach birthday party and at first the images were all blacked out. I then clicked the "ok" button to proceed, even though these photos fell outside my current "safe" filter...This is what came up:

if you click on the image it should get bigger

Oh no! Men with their shirts off!!! Escape, escape...quick, TAKE ME TO THE KITTENS:


Sheesh, that was a close one. It might take these 269,351 photos of kittens to get image out of my brain.

Anyway, this little incident was amusing - but honestly, it would have come in handy a few weeks ago when I was doing a search for our dog Maisy's breed "lacy" (named after the family who bred them). There is a girl in Sweden who DOES NOT own a dog, let alone a lacy dog, but does like to photograph herself in - we'll say - compromising positions. What the....
Nice to know that now my innocent eyes will be better protected next time ; )

I feel sorry for the guy who's having his images used as the escape button to go to the kittens.
I found my brother's photos on Flickr and the same message came up but all he had were 2 photos of The Sydney Opera House and a ship in the harbour,i don't get it either.
