Celebrating 1 Million Views

Fri Feb 01, 2002 2:50 am

I've just had my one-millionth (distinct!) view in the last couple of days, so obviosuly that's a big milestone for me, and I wanted to post a message to say thanks to everyone who thought some of my photos were worth a closer look. But not wishing to plug my own photographs, I thought I'd mark the occasion by selecting a few photos by other photographers that I particularly like. The lesson here is that regardless of how many photos you have, and how many people have looked at them, there's always someone else who can teach you something!

Chris.

Chris,
you do good work, very very good work buddy. I just passed the 900K mark (your message inspired me to check)- so im hot on your tail- watch out!  Smile
some items of observation:
look at the shots you put up- look at the views/hits- amazing how little some of em get isnt it? also- i uploaded 25 shots, mostly from my MIA/FLL trip last week- been in the que for a week now and i've noticed that the que is backing up bigtime- must be some system issues- but as my FLL/MIA shots come in, i'll catch you at a faster rate- so start uploading some more now!! hahahaha

Peter, if you took pictures at a busier airport, you wouldn't have that much time on your hands!  Smile

Damn, I thought I'd be the next millionaire, you sure shot past me

Ah well that will teach me to upload low hit scoring shots  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

But the race is on  Smile/happy/getting dizzy between me and ADG, I am slightly in front.

Congratulations Chris!

One million individual hits.. that is a figure of which I with my 18000 something views still don't dare to dream  Wink/being sarcastic

Anyway Thanks a lot for your superb pictures! They certainly belong to my favorites here at airliners.net!

Lots of kind comments - thanks very much.

Andrew (Hunt) - listen mate, at the rate you get views (average of over 1000 per pic!) it's not gonna take you long to rack up a million!

Glenn - I noticed a while back that you and I had practically the same number of views, although you had slightly more pictures than me, so I'm quite chuffed to have overtaken you on views and reached the million mark first. Looking at the "about" page, there are a few people who're going to be millionaires themselves soon, so it won't be such an exclusive club!

I hope I didn't offend anyone by not including their photos in my original post! (That's always the problem with picking out photos you particularly like - with such a huge number to choose from, I'm always coming across pictures I wish I'd taken myself, only to forget where I saw them a few days later. I should probably write down the id numbers for this very purpose!) I deliberately tried to avoid picking oft-seen pictures with 1000s of views. Anyway, here's a few more that have caught my eye, and are probably deserving of a few extra views!

(I am particularly taken with the quality of this aerial view of my stomping ground (Manchester). Dean has managed to get the whole airport in, while conveniently disguising most of my favourite photo spots by hiding them behind those bits of cloud!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy)
