Brenternet (The World as seen by Brent Moore)

Trying to appeal to the highest common denominator. I can't give you 110% effort, but I will give you 107.4% effort. If you're a spammer and leave me a comment, I will make fun of you. I use twice as many semicolons compared to most other bloggers

2010 Photography Year in Review

Links to this post

Being a Semi-pro photographer, I like to take a moment and reflect on what happened in 2010. As a number cruncher, I also like to look at stats and chart positions and the like. It's fun to remember where I've been as I look forward.

You don't have to keep reading if you don't want. I'm doing this for myself, but if you find this type of thing interesting, feel free to keep reading.

I did one of these in 2008. I didn't do one for 2009 as I spent that time building my photo website.

My last photo of the year was a blurry photo of the Smyrna Gazebo by the train depot on the way home from a new years eve party. (sidenote: the photo is terrible, but I could call it bokeh and someone might think its real art.) The first photo was of MariLynn coming back to the car from Publix with my birthday cake. In between, there were 18,303 other photos, and I can't describe each one. If 18,000 seems like a lot, I'm down from previous years.

Most of my publishing-worthy photos go onto Flickr. I now have 5,453 online there. 1,147 were uploaded this year. All-time, they have all been collectively viewed 1,196,111 times.

Flickr has a term called interestingness where they use a secret formula to determine what the most interesting photo is. My most "interestingness" photo from 2010 is this one of the old neon sign for the Pink Motel in Cherokee, NC

Pink Motel - Cherokee, NC

The most viewed photo from 2010? There's something about Coke murals that brings people out
Coke Mural - Bristol, VA

My favorite photos of 2010:

Some of these aren't quite the best photos, but they are the photos I am happiest to have taken in 2010. Click on any photo to enlarge.

Other 2010 notes: This is the first year I've had photos appear on TV, appearing localy on WSMV and WZTV, and Nationally on CBS. In print I had a photo appear in the Tennesseean.

Finally, this is my favorite Self-Portrait:
