Another Set of Flickr Photos Found

September 16, 2008

Some photos you remember exactly when and where and what it was like when you pushed the button on your camera. A blog called Wide Open Wallet recently found and used one of those photos:


That was taken on a flight from home to Atlanta, and it was snowing in Denver and the fact that there were three inches of snow on the ground didn’t slow anyone down. I remember looking out the airplane window as we landed and taxied and I’m sure I was shaking my head that we’d just landed on a snowy runway.

Here are three other places my photos have been used lately:

  • My rural mailbox photo is on the Simple Makes contact page.
  • My baseball-in-the-grass photo remains a popular choice — it was used on the Deuce of Davenport blog. That’s three months in a row that someone found and used that one.
  • And finally, a new one — first time I know of this Snow Patrol CD photo being used, as it was recently on Create Digital Music.

    I’m curious — how do you keep track of which images are being used? I usually try to send a quick FlickrMail. I really enjoy sharing via CC; it’s made a difference not only for our site and the connections we make but also via my own shots (and recently, my girlfriend’s)!

    Hi Peter — I use RSS feeds on vanity searches to catch as many as possible. On Technorati, Google Blog Search, Google News Alerts, etc., I do a search for my name (and one for my nickname, “pleeker”), and then subscribe to the RSS feed of the results. As long as someone mentions my name or nickname, it should come up in the RSS feed.

    Hope that helps.

    And I sure appreciate the Creative Commons use of the photo! You take great pictures.
