Go Figure (#200) 26-01-13

#200! Now that is a milestone.

I have learned that I have very limited ability in editing my own images. Ones that I like are often ignored by other viewers, and vice versa.

While walking in River St, in Savannah, Anna caught my eye. I stopped her, and Roy, and asked if I could photograph them. After they said yes, I could hardly wait to photograph Anna. A considered Roy sort of an afterthought. I think that the images reflect that. Anna has a fairly true, authentic look. Roy has sort of a camera smile.

I posted both of these to my Flickr photostream. If you are not familiar with Flickr, each photo in the photostream is a thumbnail. If you click on the thumbnail to view it larger, it gets recorded as a “view”. So presumably thumbnails that people find interesting get more views (and comments) than those that seem uninteresting.

Well, you can see where this is going. Roy got many more views than did Anna. I don’t get it! But that’s one reason why photographers need to show their work to others. A reality check. Go figure.
