What’s up with You People?

Filed under: India — Chris @ 10:36 am

The list of my most viewed photos on Flickr is perplexing. Obviously some photos just have popular keywords that make people I don’t know want to look at them. But why do so many people want to look at this picture? Are lots of people searching for “shoes bangalore”? (It’s not even in the Top 50 for “shoes”, which goes to show how odd Flickr users can be. (I include myself in that statement.) And why is this the most popular photo from my Savandurga set? I guess people love to hate poor little village boys.

OK, I’m throwing down. Please add a comment to this post explaining what kind of pictures you like and why. The upshot is I will try to accomodate audience interests. On the downside, you will have to prove you are not a robot.

P.S. I have a feeling this is going to end in much the same humiliation as the “first caller gets a $20 bill” contest on my WNYU AM radio show: The prize went unclaimed. I unilaterally cancelled the show shortly thereafter. 😦

[UPDATE 6/22/2006] Self-fulfilling prophecy? Thanks to my wife for providing me a statistically random sample…



  1. Indian shoe fetishists?

    I like pictures of snacks. And monkeys. If you could get a picture of a monkey having a snack, that’d be the best.
