Old Photographs and Flckr Statistics

Penmon Lighthouse
Originally uploaded by stephenlamb

I have been having a look through my archives today - and found a series of photographs of Penmon Lighthouse on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales. These photographs must be some 10 years old. They were taken on 35mm film and have been scanned from the negatives. The Penmon Penninsula is an interesting place for a walk - as well as the lighthouse, there is the chance to see Penmon Priory and Puffin Island which is about half a mile off shore.

This view shows both Penmon Lighthouse and Puffin Island.

While going through my old photographs, I also found this view of Quorn Church in Leicestershire which I like.

All of these photographs have been uploaded to Flickr. My Flickr statistics have been a bit strange for the last couple of days. I normally have between 100 and 150 views per day. Yesterday I had 471 views which more than doubles the previous highest number which I think was about 230 views. 364 of these views are listed as coming from an unknown source. I normally only have about 5 views listed as unknown source. Are my photographs suddenly more popular? Or are Flickr's statistics misbehaving? The trend has continued today. So far, there are 213 views listed with 162 coming from an unknown source. I wonder what the coming week will bring.
