I have been taking part in a group competition on Flickr, called Flickr 64. The games is simple – the first 64 members to sign up for a game get a place. Each member is paired against another member for Round 1, and on a specified date both members upload recently taken photos. Other members vote on which photo they like the most. At the end of the vote, the counting is done and a winner pronounced, who then moves on to Round 2. And so on. I habitually go out in Round 1. In fact I am always eliminated in Round 1.
Until today, when I managed to get through to the second round for the first time ever with the photo below. I won by a whopping 43 votes to 9, so I’m thoroughly pleased with myself! Sadly, I will be going out in Round 2, as I have drawn one of the best photographers in the group. Such is life. Still it’s all good fun, and what makes Flickr the great community it is.
