The Power of Social Media

Took this image outside a bookies , well a series of them as i saw a potential for a possible meaningful image, and i got lucky with this one being far the best of the bunch . Put it on Flickr and the next day it was picked for Explore , so many photos per day are chosen to go there. Which really increases the viewing and get some people looking at some of my other work . It got over 36 thousand views in all which to get so many see one of my photographs is amazing to me. Who would have thought a number of years ago how communication could spread so fast and how artists can share there expressions with so many in such a short time . Also i can get inspired by so many other artists out there which i probably would never see if it had not been for social media websites . Thanks for reading : )
