Flickr to include Matt Maldre in 10 year anniversary video

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 am contacting you because Flickr is turning 10

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.

Chicago's Moving Bridges over the Chicago River

or a recent trending favorite with over 100 views per day for the past year, “Chicago CTA Quincy train station

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

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.
