My most viewed photos on Flickr

The last blog post got me thinking of my popular photos on Flickr. Here are the top 10 most viewed photos:


  1. John McCain (featured on http://news.yahoo.com/elections) 34,251 hits -- this photo spent a number of weeks linked to from Yahoo!'s 2008 election page. One of the two times I saw him in Merrimack. The colors are a bit washed out. For rare/unique photo ops I now shoot in RAW format...

  2. New Hampshire Nudist Park 18,506 hits -- Yes chilly NH does have a nudist park. No I've never stopped in.

  3. Are you ready for the Rapture? Jesus is coming on Oct 28, 1992(!) 15,635 hits

  4. Gena O`Kelley (Mrs Chuck Norris) 13,620 hits -- I took the kids to see Chuck Norris and his wife when they were out traveling with Mike Huckabee. I'd say most people where there to see Chuck. He is surprisingly short in person. Also see comment wrt RAW format.

  5. Barack Obama 12,071 hits -- one of my 'famous' photos. It is available under a liberal Attribution Creative Commons license and has been used on a number of website but also the cover of a now defunct hiphop magazine. Tineye.com says it knows of about 153 uses. Also used on Wikpedia: Barack_Obama_at_NH See note about shooting in RAW...

  6. Gena O`Kelley 11,954 hits -- another Mrs Chuck Norris photo from the same event. Guess the Norris fanboys like to look at his wife.

  7. Hillary Clinton in Hampton, NH 10,607 --- this is from one of her early 2008 primary events in NH. Did you ever notice her blue eyes? I really like this photo.

  8. If you don't talk to your cat about catnip... Who Will? 8,420 -- funny sign seen at a daytrip to Portsmouth.

  9. Shawn Johnson 7,205 -- not a particularly great shot but linked to from a woman's gymnastics web forum.

  10. Senator Joe Biden & Nozell/Thomas family 6,212 -- at the time Vice President Biden was just a US Senator. As you may guess the event was in support of NH Governor John Lynch.
