Head In A Vice – Explored

Head In A Vice

I took this photo of my stairway late Friday night, decided the photo would look better with more starkly defined lines, and converted it to black and white as i stood on the landing (via Snapseed and then Hipstamatic, I believe, but perhaps only in Hipstamatic). I realize Flickr’s Explore is a computerized algorithm, yet I still am amused when the attention firehose is pointed in my direction (as of this moment, this photo has 54 Faves and 1,873 views; for comparison, this photo has  5 Faves and 161 views). I didn’t even put in a caption at the time, nor add it to any group as it was late and I was a bit inebriated when I took and processed the photo. Was it timing? Was it just happenstance? 

Don’t get me wrong, I like the photo, or else I wouldn’t have uploaded it. But what exactly is better about it than the others I’ve uploaded

Thanks, Obama was uploaded to Flickr

That’s the cheapest gasoline I’ve purchased in quite some time.

And for the record, not directly related to Obama’s administration, as far as I know. (Though it was a talking point of Newt Gingrich and other GOP presidential candidates in 2012)
