Nice surprise this morning to see that one of my Zenfolio blog's Snow Flakes images made it into Flickr's prestigious Explore group of March 6th. So far, over 14,000 have viewed it and 147 persons have "faved" it. Flickr is for me a low maintenance social media group where I have very few people whose images I follow and comment on. Some image social media sites become overwhelming and burdensome in terms of obligatory comments that are due.
It is something of a mystery how an image gets included in Explore's selected 500 images, given the astronomical number posted that day. But getting on Explore means greater recognition of your image. By the way, I am "Dorchester" in Flickr in case you want to view my postings there. As for this image, I was out in the snow, and saw passersby heading home on West End Avenue in NYC. The man in the red jacket caught my attention and I waited for him to get closer. The activity of dogs in the scene delighted me as well as the man with the umbrella almost tipping to one side. Finally, the blurry scene reminded me of shaking a crystal snow ball - a delight to a child.
