Nantucket Revisited

[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.

    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.

    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.
