To be quite honest, I have not taken a photo in close to six weeks! What’s going on with me?! I just have not been inspired by anything. The colours in the winter are very bland, and it has just been so cold out that I’m scared to venture very far from my house to go out shooting. Maybe it’s because I’m not a big fan of snow. Looking at snow is not very exciting, nor is it very vibrant. I’ll need to get back into it as a form of artistic expression.
As some of you may know, I left my job as lead developer at the company where I worked. I liked flexing my creative muscles there, but now that I will not be building websites anymore, I’ll need to put my creativity into another avenue. Enter photography. It’s still something I enjoy doing very much, and I haven’t logged into my flickr account in a very long time.
I logged in today and realized that they have stats on each photo now! How awesome is that? Because there was one photo that was getting a crazy amount of views, and I couldn’t figure out why. The photo I’m referring to is the one with the twizzlers. Somehow, that photo was able to rack up over two thousand views! Now that I enabled the stats, I found out that all of these views are coming from Google and Yahoo image searches! People look for rainbow, and or twizzlers, and my picture shows up on the first set of results! Aren’t stats cool?
Anyway, enough with the ranting. Stay tuned. Once I’m done my job, I plan on doing more work with the camera, and more volunteer work with Drupal in the mean time. I’ll make a blog post about what I’ve been doing with Drupal 6 in a future date.
