Harvest moon, originally uploaded by erin m.

According to Flickr, this is the most interesting photo I’ve ever posted.

In the first 24 hours after I posted, it had 1,200 views. More than 100 people had called it a favorite. Another 80 or so took the time to comment on it. DCist called it the photo of the day, and someone e-mailed me asking to buy a print. At one point, it was the fourth most interesting photo posted on all of Flickr that day.

I know it’s a good photo. I LOVE this photo. It was, however, my first official interaction with the absolutely massive stream of commentary that is rained down upon people in our new, webby world. I spent so much time keeping up with comments and new contacts that I didn’t really do much else all day.
