On Flickr as a photo backup tool

I have been taking a lot of photos with my Nikon D3200 camera. Apparently, the D3200 was a solid purchase back on May 5, 2012. I have been using it for almost 3 years. A quick web search of Amazon bestselling DSLR camera bundles provides the data necessary to indicate that people are still buying that particular model of camera. It really does take better photos than my HTC One Max smartphone. It also takes better photos than Joni’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3. All those photos have to be backed up somehow and somewhere.

My membership on Flickr dates back to March 2005. It is a Yahoo branded service that I still pay for. You can find all of my photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nelslindahl. A number of them are publicly viewable. I’m strongly considering using the Flickr service as an additional photo backup tool. It will not be my primary photo backup tool, but it would be a retrieval option. My usage of Flickr dropped off after John Paul was born. The Flickr service is currently hosting 9,233 of my photos. We elected to only share digital photos of John Paul with the closed network confines of Facebook. That pretty much locked down the photos to friends of friends.
