Having only been on flickr for about five months, I’m still very fascinated by the concept of interestingness. Not as it relates to explore (though I’m proud of all my photos that made that leap of popularity) but how it relates to my pictures against each other.

Up at the very top, I’m really fond of the entire top row and wonder how the three of the eight that are in color would look in black and white. Would they have gotten more love in black & white? I look through all of the photos in comparison and wonder if I should go back and turn them all black & white. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s funny that some of the photos that people consider terrible are actually pretty high. For example #15, #20, #33, #41, #45, and #67 are all in my "Craptastic" set. #47 is even the shot that’s used as the establishing shot for the set. Though I still like #47 a lot myself. It just needs some adjustments. Like maybe making it black and white. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhow, it’s a fun way to look back at 2006, no matter how seriously or unseriously I take interestingness.

One small gripe though. I’m still angry that flickr changed the formula so that any picture that was posted in Score Me! is sacked and pillaged. #34 has been favorited more times than all but the top photos for pete’s sakes. Sorry I got 10 views or so by posting in a ratings community. Cripes!
