    Good morning
    Excellent posts as ever.
    I am most sorry to impose once more. At your earlier suggestion, I do now regularly visit your very fine Lack of Imagination site on Flickr. In visiting it today, I found that I could not either access or download original (or indeed any other) sizes of photographs. May I enquire whether this is a new Flickr temporary or permanent constraint, or perhaps you not encounter this change of Flickr functionality on your computer – in which case I will contact my service provider.
    With my thanks once more.

    • Thank you. I just tried to download an image from my Flickr account and it worked. I do not understand why your attempt was not successful.
