I think Flickr is awesome. It’s probably my most visited website (yes even more so than my email). I’ve been using Flickr to organise and share my photography for several years now, and I haven’t found anything that beats it.

You can also send your photographs to groups which collect photographs on a theme. I also enjoy how social Flickr is, you can add other users as contacts, follow their photostreams and comment on their work. I recommend taking some time to browse through Explore, and look at the most interesting photography from the last 7 days.
