Yesterday morning I went to Higgins Beach early with my friend Kerry to take pictures. After processing them at Elements coffee shop in Biddeford, I uploaded three to my Flickr photostream. Sometimes in the night, my phone again began to start pinging and beeping with Flickr notifications. All day my view count was climbing, and people were favoriting and commenting.
As an artist, it’s very nice to have others appreciate my work. I’ve had a couple other pictures reach the top spot on Explore, but I had pretty much stopped posting to Flickr for a couple years until just recently, so it’s been a while. Earlier this evening my picture claimed the #2 position, which is where I figured it would end, as the top image was amazing and had nearly double the view count and many more comments. However, when I checked a few moments ago, mine had risen to the top spot. Woot!
Thank you all.
