According to Flickr, these are my most popular pics from the previous two years. I am not really sure about the criteria they use to determine this ranking but their explanation says “This is a view of your 75 most popular bits, ordered by interestingness. ”
I just split them by years to make it a little more interesting.
Looks very similar. Both have clouds. Both have buildings. Both have a body of water. Even the horizon is almost at the same level.
I will update them again next year and hopefully, the most popular picture of 2009 will have a little different theme.
