[Today I’m doing something I’ve never done: a re-posting. It’s not that I’m against recycling, I just never thought about it. Until I noticed an interesting phenomenon. I looked at my WordPress stats one day last week and saw an unusually high number of hits for a single post–this one about Nantucket. For one reason or another, people have taken to the image of the flower box. It now has over 10,000 hits on Flickr, the most out of all my photos. I would not have predicted this when I made the picture. But that was before the days of Pinterest. After this shot was “pinned,” it took on a life of its own. The power of social media.
At any rate, here’s a replay of “A Touch of Provence. . .”]
. . .on the island of Nantucket. The sun was setting, we were waiting for our ferry and the shopkeeper was occupied. Right after I took this shot, she came out, sat down and smoked until we left. Timing really is everything.
Just another Nantucket window, and flower box.
Sunset on the marina, Nantucket.
I love the table for two shot. Something about that really appeals to me. All your photos are lovely. Thanks for re-sharing!
Well, I’m glad I did it then! Thanks for the very kind words.
That shot was on Pinterest- which led me to your blog!!!
How nice! Thanks for dropping by. 🙂
These are the photos from Pinterest that led me to sign up here as well. SCS
Awesome. Welcome to the blog!
I can see why you received 10,000 hits on your Flickr page. These images are so comforting and peaceful. Makes me want to get a cup of coffee and sit at that little table for a while.
Aww, thanks, Jackie! I could go for that right now too.
I agree with Jackie, I can see why as well. I loved those shots the first time and I love them again.
These are such enachnating pictures.
The power of social media is amazing, scary almost.
I love the table as well.
Don’t you spend an incredible amount of time on Pinterest? I’m really scared, I’m so visual, I have a feeling I would be there all the time.
At first I spent a lot of time on Pinterest, because I got overwhelmed by all the boards. Then I realized I would never see all of them and that was OK. Now I spend about 10-15 min. a day.
That’s OK but one gets drawn in so easily.
There are people who spend hours on it, that’s true.
Love, love, love the marina! Beautiful lighting.
I know you love boating, so that’s no surprise, Jeanne. 🙂 We were lucky to get there right as the sun was setting.
Incredible shots, as always, Carole. Marina sunset is my favourite.
Thanks so much, Cheryl. I appreciate the feedback, because I wasn’t sure people would like the marina photo.
The marina shot is gorgeous!
