Flickr Photos

I know I vowed to start blogging more and I kind-of have done so, but to be honest, most of my good content goes over on [robotSprocket] rather than here. But maybe that will change in the new year. Maybe. As for 2022, it’s the end-of-the-road and as I look forward to 2023, I wanted to take a few moments to look backwards at this year. As far as photography goes, this was a year of less photography and more enjoying. Enjoying life. Enjoying where I am. Enjoying my time with my wife...

First off, apologies that a) I haven’t actuallly blogged here in over a year; and b), that this usual year-end retrospective is almost a month late. I suck. I know. 😛 As in years past, these are the 10 most-interesting photos I made and shared in 2021 as determined by Flickr’s obscure and mysterious “Interestingness” algorithm. 10. Going Downtown 9. Shadow Grove 8. Walk to the Sea 7. Twilight Graves 6. In the Mysterious Hills 5. Waiting for Last Light 4. Duality 3. Unstructured 2. Among the Red Rocks On the Range

As in years past, these are the 10 most-interesting photos I made and shared in 2020 as determined by Flickr’s obscure and mysterious “Interestingness” algorithm. 10. Twisted 9. The Lonesome Tree at Evening 8. Dam Danger 7. On the Forest Highway 6. Skybound 5. Pumping Petroleum 4. Early-Morning Solitude 3. Autumn Backroad 2. Placid Dawn Countryside Drive Sadly, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to complete any of the travel we had planned on in 2020, so most of our photos this year are from the North Texas region where...

*Once again, according to Flickr’s dubious and mysterious “Interestingness” algorithm. As I’ve done in past years, I thought I’d share the 10 most-interesting photos from 2018 that I published on 75CentralPhotography.Com. To figure out what are the 10 candidates, we rely on Flickr’s “Interestingness” algorithm, which doesn’t actually seem to work very well, as I feel like I’ve published a lot of other photos that are more interesting than those chosen by Flickr. Oh well…here you go: 1. On the Engine’s Edge 2. Under the Stripes 3. Celine 4. BALLYS 5. Big Boulders...

It’s that time of year again where I take a look at how Flickr has ranked the photos I took this year and share the ten most-interesting according to their mysterious “Interestingness” algorithm. As always, the misfortunate side-effect of ranking a year’s photos this way is that it’s entirely possible that I shot some photos this year that are better than these but have not yet posted them. I post a new photo every day on my photoblog at 75CentralPhotography.Com and invite and encourage you to check in periodically to see even more great photos....

*according to Flickr’s Interestingness algorithm As I’ve done at the end of the year in the past, here are the Top 10 “Most Interesting” Photos that I took (and posted) in 2016.                     The misfortunate side-effect of ranking a year’s photos this way is that it’s entirely possible that I shot some photos this year that are better than these but have not yet posted them. I post a new photo every day on my photoblog at 75Central.Com and invite and encourage you to...

For my year-end wrap up this year I’ve done something a bit different. Below are the “Most Interesting” photos from each month as determined by Flickr’s Interestingness algorithm. While a bit-flawed in that I may have not yet published the truly-most-interesting photo for a given month, it’s nonetheless interesting to see how Flickr’s algorithm ranked my photos. January February March April May June July August September October November December

You use one of the default icons. It shows me you don’t care enough to make the effort to set yourself apart individually, so you probably don’t care about your craft. You have less than 100 photos. This one is arbitrary on my part, as I’m sure there are a lot of people with great photos that have less than 100 shared on Flickr, but I like to follow people that have a deep portfolio, as it shows their committed to their craft. Your comments are “award” comments. Sorry, not only am I...

If you use Flickr, you probably get these kind of comments, wherein someone just copy and pastes some nonce about having seen your photo in some group.  What the hell is that all about?  I get these comments and am like “Good for you!  You saw a photo!”.  I usually delete them and block the person, because if you’re not going to give me at least a real comment, then don’t bother.  I don’t care if/where you saw the photo. And, while I’m on the subject, I’m not participating in any of your...
