The other day I finally hit Explore on Flickr! After 15,000+ photos it finally happened!
Now for those that don’t know Flickr’s Explore is a feature on the site where everyday 500 photos are selected based on their secret algorithm for “interestingness.” It has something to do with views, comments, time of day when you upload, other things like that.
I ranked at #104 on November 17th, 2009.
I know no one probably cares but me, but I’ve always wanted to get a photo on Explore, mostly just to see what happened.
Last Sunday Brittany and I continued our Sunday history lessons after a little break. We went to Agecroft Hall in Windsor Oaks, on the banks of the James River. It’s an English manor home from the 15th century that was brought over piece by piece in 1925.
Since the house is very “renaissance” we were pretty excited. After paying $7 dollars each (with a AAA discount!) we were told the next tour was at 3:30. It was 3:20 at the time and no one was there. Oh well schedules are schedules I suppose. Since we were the only ones taking the tour we ended up taking almost an hour and half tour of the house. We saw a mummified cat (something to do with good luck), a bed from the 1600’s, a 1940’s library and what would be very pretty gardens in the springtime. Pretty much we are nerds.
They are having a Christmas open house December 13th, so anyone looking to get into some Christmas fun let me know!
Anyways Happy Thanksgiving everbody!
