It’s not a popularity contest…

or is it?

Yesterday, I posted a photo called Yet Another Sunset. It was a shot I took out of the window at work, looking over to the Town Hall in Leeds. I quite liked it.

This morning, I discovered that the original photo, posted up on Flickr, went into Explore at #47. And the stats went nuts. All day I’ve been getting flickr notifications. As it stands now, the photo has had 803 views, 78 favourites, and 22 comments.


Weirdly, it’s not my most popular photo, and currently sits in third place. That said, it’s only been up for a day!

In 2nd place (in terms of views), there’s Fractal Veg, with 1,025 views

and in the top spot, What’s In My Bag, with 1,829 views

No, I don’t get it either.

Do you follow your stats?

  1. It is a gorgeous picture. Also I really like your bag. Can I be nosey and ask where you got it from, please?

    1. It’s from Tom Bihn in the US. Shipping is fairly pricey unless you can find a friend over there who’ll send it to you – shipping to the US is fairly cheap!

      I absolutely love it. Great quality – it’s been in daily use for about eight years now.

      1. I did go look at their website but with the shipping it’s out of my price range đŸ˜¦
        Will keep an eye for future though…..might decide to treat myself. đŸ™‚
