Interestingness ?

I don’t know if “interestingness” is a proper word, but Flickr certainly thinks it is. Every day they put the top 500 photos posted each day into a special area called Explore, based on their secret “interestingness algorithm”. Five hundred each day might seem like a lot, but when you think that there were over 48,000 photos uploaded yesterday that were taken with exactly the same camera as I have (a Canon EOS 60D), then I’m guessing the total number of photos uploaded each day is a really, really big number.

So, I think it is a good thing if one of your photos is considered interesting enough to appear on the Explore page. I’m lucky enough to have had 17 of my photos in Explore.

These are them. Do you find them interesting? Which ones are highest on your “interestingness” scale?

    Congratulations! I love how your photography skills are improving! And you know I’m a fan of your bird and roo and landscape pics, but you also have such a good eye for interesting perspectives. I really like the university underground car park, it almost looks like a cathedral but also like a cave and almost organically grown.
