Why is this photo popular?


This photo gets a lot more love than most of my photos. It has over 1200 views to date, putting it at #5 in my views list. This is almost all down to it being used in two online blogs: The Mr Brown Show [] and MediaMemo at All Things D []. On the other hand only one person has marked this photo as a favorite and there are no comments so I’m not in any danger of it breaking into my Most Interesting [] set, which tracks my top photos as ranked by Flickr’s “interestingness” algorithm, whatever that is. Though it might be in good company I don’t understand how some of those got popular either.
