My friendship with fellow weaver , Laverne Waddington, is a result of me seeing her photos on Flickr, and then her blog and then meeting her at a conference. It was not a chance meeting. I knew I wanted to meet her because I saw the photographs of her beautiful weaving on Flickr first!
There are statistics tracked by Flickr. I can see how many people looked at which of my photos. Sometimes they mark them as favorites or add them to a collection. Every day somebody somewhere in the world is looking at my photographs! Over time, here are the top ten favorites, the ones that get the most views.

And some of my "contacts". Shari, a talented basketweaver and photographer from Nova Scotia, Canada shares her lovely photos via Flickr. We also read each others' blogs.
I know that at least one customer has come to me because he saw my photos on Flickr. But, that is another story.
