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 we make our homebase. We were able to sneak off to Arkansas and Oklahoma a couple of times, so there is some variety, but not what we’d planned. Hopefully, things will start to return to normal now that the vaccine is rolling out and we have a new administration that seems to want to make things better for others rather than only enriching themselves.
As mentioned in previous years, Flickr uses a mysterious algorithm to determine what constitute an “interesting” photo. No one seems to know what makes a photo interesting in the eyes of Flickr. My assumption is that it’s some combination of view count relative to a user’s normalized view count, some comment metrics, a dash of machine learning and magic dust.
At any rate, as we’ve done before, here are the 10 Most-Interesting photos taken this year by us as determined by Flickr.

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:
