I’m extremely honored that the Yahoo Creative Team asked that one of my photos be included in the 10-year Flickr anniversary video! Here’s their request:
I immediately thought they would want to use one of my most popular photos, like “Chicago’s Moving Bridges over the Chicago River” My premiere photo on flickr with 437 favs, 94 comments and 60,000 views.
or a recent trending favorite with over 100 views per day for the past year, “Chicago CTA Quincy train station”
They didn’t pick either one of those. Instead, I love that they picked a completely quirky photo, “Bent nails spell 777”
This sort of quirky pick is one of the reasons why I love flickr, there is such depth and history to their service. This particular photo was shot for the day 07/07/07. Was Instagram around then? Nope. Flickr was. Flickr rules. I can’t wait to see the 10-year anniversary video for flickr.
