My Photos Viewed More Than Half Million Times On Flickr

There’s a great quote by article by Tim O’Reilly which has been well publicised by author Cory Doctorow:

“Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy”

Late yesterday, 19th July 2012 the number of times my photos shared on Flickr have been viewed passed half a million 🙂 It’s interesting to recall that I didn’t join Flickr Pro until 3 years ago because I feared that people would copy my photos and use them without permission.

While that has happened, the overall effect has been very positive with people around the world getting to enjoy my photos and I have been offered income generating opportunities which I wouldn’t have got otherwise. It also means that I have been able to contribute a lot to the common good of the Internet because all my photos on Flickr are Creative Commons licenced (Attribution, Noncommercial, Share Alike).

Footprints on Stockton Sand Dunes (north of Newcastle, NSW) was the most popular photo of mine viewed yesterday so it could have been the 500,000th photo viewed.
