For me the most gratifying thing about my photography is knowing that people are actually interested in my images. I joined Flickr in 2008 and it was one of the best things I ever did. I have it hooked up to my Adobe Lightroom software so that I can easily process and publish images in the minimum amount of time.
I used to be very picky about images I uploaded to Flickr. These days I am a lot less choosy over what I publish. I’m of the opinion that almost everything I take will be of interest to someone, somewhere at some point in time. So even stuff that I am not particularly proud of along with images from my phone of general stuff gets uploaded.
So… 1.3m views and counting. I’m just going to keep pressing that shutter button and hope that people still find my work interesting.
