My Flickr photos get clicks for a few reasons. Photo keywords with sexual connotations aside, photos with very specific tags receive the most consistent hits. For example, a keyword of “Ireland” will never get any hits as it will just get lost in the sea of Ireland photos. Put in the specific Pub and band playing and the hit rate goes up. But there are a bunch of photos of mine that have next to no hits that I think are funny gems. Keywords won’t help them get more hits, and they don’t appear very flashy in a tiny one-inch preview square. I thought I’d highlight them here.
The credit for the first group goes to my wife. They mostly involve her reacting to signs or scenery in a rather obvious way, but that doesn’t make them any less genius to me.
The next group of photos are candids that I didn’t find interesting or funny until after I took them. They won’t make it to the Cheezburger Network without a hilarious caption but looking back at these just makes me smile. I’ll let the speak for themselves.
