My Most Viewed Pictures - And What They Can Tell Us

A quick check in on the top 10 most viewed photos on my Flickr Photostream and what the stats may tell us:

As of today, the top ten most viewed pictures I've taken and posted on Flick are:
  1. Close Up of Taj Mahal - 1,770 views
  2. Naked Bike Riders at the Femont Solstice Parade - 610
  3. Aircraft Carrier Yorktown in Charleston, SC - 573
  4. Beijing Olympic Stadium - 532
  5. Former South Vietnam Capitol Building - 486
  6. Don't Tread On Me Flag - 454
  7. Modern Ho Chi Mihn City - 392
  8. 2009 Gay Pride Parade - 364
  9. Modern Skyline of Ho Chi Mihn City - 337
  10. Temple of the Warriors at Chichen Itza Ruins -336
These pictures are not necessarily the ones I think are my best shots. You can see some of those by clicking HERE.

But, I think these results show that:
  • A lot of people are interested in military history - particularly the Vietnam era
  • The Beijing Olympics was a huge interest to people - so much so that even though nobody has looked at my picture in a LONG time, it still is near the top of the most viewed list
  • Loads of people want to know what the Taj Mahal looks like close up - not sure why, but it's pretty obvious
  • Interest in the "Don't Tread On Me" symbol, flag and saying has shot up in interest along with the Tea Party
  • Hey, pictures of naked bike riders or a Gay Pride parader are always going to get some views
