Examples of Flickr Annotations

My friend Juliana Kreinik, an editor at SmartHistory who is currently teaching a course at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, recently shared with me some Flickr annotations performed by her students. I’m posting them here as examples of thorough and thoughtful image annotation. These annotations interpret art images, so they might be different from the way you annotate yours.
