You may have noticed that all the links from my previous post are images on Flickr. On their welcome page under the title and header/image is the number of images that have been uploaded to this one photo sharing service in the last minute. Usually around 4000. Now say Flickr is wildly popular and 1/10th of one percent of all the pictures taken in the world are uploaded there. This would mean 5 billion 760 million photos are taken every day . Nearly one for every being on earth- every day. Click the blue the last minute link and you will see twenty of those 4000. These have value to someone. Someone picked up their camera, made a decision and set that small instant apart from everything else in the universe. Even my daughter Ella has gotten into the act.
