Like most photographers I have a Flickr account. There’s some 388 images in my galleries. More than some. Less than others. I really only like to post my best work up there. I don’t think of it like Instagram or Facebook for pictures. There’s really no need for everyone to know about every image I take. But something interesting has happened over the past month and I really don’t have any reason for it. I shattered my one day views. My previous high was 147. But three weeks ago I had 583 views in one day! Then 400 and some the next! Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. But I did nothing to prompt this. I hadn’t even posted any new images. It just happened out of the blue. To top it off the image that got the most hits was one that I had taken more than 9 years ago. I have to admit it is still one of my favorite images and have had multiple requests for copies.
It was taken at Joshua Tree National Park in California during a workshop. I’m sorry to say that I can’t remember the instructor’s name. But it was a lot of fun and I did learn a lot. This isn’t the only great shot I got that weekend. Here’s one more. Taken in the early, early morning on the last day.
I’m trying to remember but I think it was all done in PS3. Long before I really knew anything about Photoshop or Plug-ins or anything else really.
And have a safe and happy New Years.
Please don’t drink and drive! I know it gets said ALOT at this time of year but don’t let your fun end on a bad note.
