There are 249 entries sitting in Flickr for the January "Cold" contest -- the most ever, although I haven't de-duped multiple photos from the same person, if there are any. Our very first contest, "At the beach" last August, drew 238 entries, so let's see if we can't beat that mark.

A reminder: The deadline is midnight tomorrow (Saturday, Jan. 31). We'll give Flickr a few days to find new accounts, then I'll ask photographer John Blanding to winnow the field to the best 50 for you to vote on.

I'll start posting the entries this afternoon and keep adding.

Meanwhile, Essdras Suarez of the Globe staff critiqued a portfolio yesterday; we'll post that early next week. And I have a tipsheet from Mark Wilson about taking photos in the cold -- how apt! I'll also get that posted ASAP.

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
