I may not have mentioned it here, but I use Flickr a lot. My first photo uploaded was back in September 2005. (Strangely, the second was in May of 2007.) Since then, I've uploaded a grand total of 1604, constituting about the top 10% (in my opinion) of the digital photos I have taken. I never take the time to work on them before uploading, even though there is a lot that could be improved by cropping and adjusting the levels.
According to my stats, I've gotten 92,121 views as of today. While impressive, this probably has more to do with my thorough tagging of each photo than with my photograph talents. Flickr gives a lot of interesting statistics, including listing the top photos by number of views. The list is both interesting and surprising, enough so that I thought I would share it here.

Brazilians personify The King a bit differently.
Not something you'd want to run into in a dark alley.
This was a surprise. Apparently more people are interested in looking at photos of Pamela Gay than seeing a giant bat skeleton. Who knew?
But even Pamela Gay is no match for a pizza box, at least not one with Portuguese printed on it.
Their teeth may be sharp, but I still think the giant bat skeleton is cooler.
This is a pretty typical costume for Dragon*Con. I guess people like to look at photos that contain cigarettes.
Sadly, this mural no longer exists. It has been replaced with a picture of a far less satanic-looking octopus.
This was so odd that I did a bit of research to figure out what was going on. I'm pretty sure people were looking for this.
Notice that this got over twice as many views as the number 2 photo. All I can say is that way too many unsupervised small children are using the internet.
