testmeat photoblog


2nd May 2010

1000

so today is a bit of a special day, this post marks the 1000th post in testmeat photobloggery. i knew it was coming up, and as i haven't really made a big deal of any landmark before (except my 4th birthday) i thought i should do something a little bit different. so here's a mosaic of the first 1000 photos i've posted - each of them linking to that entry. if you're a fan of pointless statistics, i thought i'd analyse all of these entries, and here's what i uncovered:
  • my most popular camera is the canon powershot a620, which i still use today, and is responsible for over 50% of these photos
  • my favourite shutter speed is 1/60 second used 63 times
  • my favourite aperture is f/2.8 used 168 times
  • my favourite focal length is 7.3mm used in over 25% of the shots.
  • september is usually my most productive month for taking pictures, as 163 were taken then.
  • i seem to prefer taking shots early in the month with both the 2nd and 6th day of a month responsible for 10% between them
  • 2008 and 2009 were both equally fruitful years, providing just under 25% of all of the entries on the site
  • my most productive day for taking photoblog worthy pictures was a sunny, pre-hospitalised day in south africa on 4th January 2008
i tag each photo i put up here, which means assigning a keyword or category to describe each shot. i've added over 2000 different tags to these 1000 photos, and if you can prove anything with statistics, which i think history tells us you infallibly can, then according to my tagging: i've tried to build in a page viewing, statistics system to this site. it may not be completely accurate, but according to the data i've collected since the end of 2007:
  • my most highly viewed photo is this nine inch nails one seen over 11,000 times
  • cesc fabregas (7000) is less popular than daniel johns (8184) of silverchair (2655) but more popular than a tree (6664)
  • no one really wants to look at a blurry flaming lips picture (59) from 2006
  • the site seems to be steadily growing in page views, there were 400k in 2008, over 600k in 2009 and if trends continue as they currently are 2010 will see over 750,000.
anyways, that's 1000 down, i don't know how many to go, watch/bookmark this space to find out.

if you can't see the full, link-ridden mosaic above perhaps you're better off looking at a flat version. that's today's extra image, which incidentally have appeared in 64% of my posts. sorry, i'll stop that now. here's the extra image
