In 2009, my digital input was low, often making only one picture a day. This is a rare case of such an instance where timing paid off.

Flickr! Schwag!

A parcel from flickr!

Recently I reached out to the new owner of Flickr about Schwag. Much to my delight and surprise I received a response and the schwag arrived Friday in the mail!
