I have been writing this blog for about 8 years and now have over 2000 followers in over 30 countries. I have not monetized the blog and am pretty casual about promotion. I do follow the analytics though and the posts that get the most attention are concert images, zombie images, wildlife images and attractive women. I have notice another trend recently after publishing A Monaco Moment.
People like selective color images. Combine an attractive woman and selective color and I have a really popular image. Here is one similar to A Monaco Moment taken in Milan a few years ago and edited in 2018. It also received a lot of views, comments and one person in Europe purchased it last year.
During our trip to California we had an opportunity to do something we always wanted to do. We went to the Eldorado Polo Club in Indio California and saw a match.
At halftime in the match spectators are invited out to the field to replace the divots, stretch and walk their dogs. We refrained thinking of all the horse poop tat was probably also spread out over the field.
Last weekend my daughter was married at The Palmer House in the great American city of Chicago. I love living in the country. The beautiful vistas, dark skies and plentiful wildlife are wonderful. However, I miss the “juice” of being in the city. You don’t see something like this in the wilderness.
