5,000,000 beers and other things

Five million on Flickr (27 October 2019)

Yes, some of us photo-dinosaurs still use Flickr.

In 2006, I first began posting photographs and images to that online image hosting service. As of this morning, 27 October 2019, my 53,450 photos and images have been viewed 5,000,000 times. That works out to approximately 1,054 hits per day.

I passed four million views on 1 July 2018 and the three million mark on 16 June 2016. I have used six different cameras (excluding cell phones and Palm PDAs). In order, from the earliest to the most recent, they have been:
  • Canon PowerShot A520
  • Canon PowerShot SD400 Digital ELPH
  • Canon PowerShot SD980 IS Digital ELPH
  • Canon PowerShot SX130 IS
  • Olympus Pen E-PL1
  • Olympus OM-D E-M10 II
During those thirteen Flickr years, much of what I have uploaded has been beer-related. In the past few years, however, my emphasis has evolved toward the 'artsy,' if not always so successfully.

Thank you to all who have viewed my images, and to all of you who have 'favorited' and commented on them.

Now, back to the brew.

Yours for good fermentables,

  • The discrepancy in starting dates is because, although I began uploading to Flick in 2006, I turned 'Pro' —that is, began paying Flickr for storage space— in 2007.
  • Every Saturday since August 2009, I've highlighted one of those 53,450 photos as Pic(k) of the Week, here at the blog. The count now stands at 530 selections. Since April 2012, I've also uploaded photos to Instagram. The count there, today, is 1,007.)
