There seems to be a law of exponential growth in the community of people who enjoy seeing the world through the lens. I am celebrating the number of views of our flickr images passing 200,000.
It took three years to reach 100,000 and just over one to double that. The number of contacts who see each new image builds up and there is a lot of tablet computer apps that load a stream of flickr supplied pictures onto screens around the globe.
If I am ever running out of steam I enjoy looking at the favourites we have selected from other flickr users. Most of them are simply stunning and letting them slide-show when listening to music is a great way to relax.
One specific image of mine has topped 30,000 views and it would appear to be a hit on Pinterest. The Fairy Pools is a classic Scottish scene from the Isle of Skye and our popular pic below catches an unusual angle on it.
Flikr is still one of the main outlets for our images. Although we sell some through Getty’s, 500px and our own website I get as much satisfaction from freely sharing great pictures from around Scotland and in return seeing the world through others sharing their images.
Its maybe time to stop counting but perhaps if we stay with it the next news will be passing the one million views mark. Will let you know if we do.
So thanks to all the viewers out there as it provides a spur to get back outside and take some more pictures. If you get out where you are lets see what captures your eye.
