I was viewing through the popular photos over here on A.net then I notice a photo of my country's airline Phillipine Airlines.I notice it is just your average photo but what makes it an interesting one?

Search Engine Still Doesn't Work Properly

I still notice some bugs in the advanced search engine. Johan said he was working on the db and I believe he's going to fix it soon.

What about this picture. There are some more of this photographer that look quite the same and are also very popular.

I've been thinking about why these are so popular for a long time. It can hardly be the above mentioned bug.

The above just look good for using as backgrounds for Windows  Smile
The searchengine may give them at the top of the list of similars for some reason, which gets them extra views.
Once they get a lot of views, they appear in the list of most-view photos, which gets them even more and the effect starts to live a life of its own when they are posted here with a question of why they get so many views and thousands more go look at them  Smile

An aircraft that crashed gets more hits usually but the two BAs are still there. I was thinking of a new color scheme or sth. like that.
