A Celebration of Number 10
In the years since, it has become a record of my growth as a photographer, a repository of my 365 project attempts and, along with this blog, a means to share my artistic vision. Of course, there are also a fair number of cringe-worthy images out there – but I look at them with fondness, knowing they are stepping stones to where I find myself today.
This year Flickr celebrates its 10th birthday – which is a lifetime in internet years. And as part of the celebration, Flickr created a birthday video featuring the work of over 150 photographers. Amazingly, out of the millions of photographs, two of my images were selected to be featured in the video and the accompanying commemorative photo book. Flickr will promote the video and the featured photographers and their work at the South by Southwest festival in this month.
To say I was floored is certainly an understatement. Indeed, I am deeply honored to be included in this project – representing all the artists who share their work through the Flickr community.
If you watch the video, I’ll give you a hint – the images are organized to represent the numbers one through ten, in a countdown format (or, to be accurate, a “count-up”). The image above represents the number four. My second image falls into the number ten group – I’ll let you guess which one is mine.
