Blog post from Wednesday, 30 September, 2015

This week we commemorate two milestones on Flickr Commons.

Today, 30 September is our seventh birthday on the Commons – we have been uploading selected images from our photographic collections to Flickr Commons since 2008. Now, we have over 2 600 images, arranged into 100 thematic albums.

Second, we have recently passed 29 million views of our images on Flickr Commons. That’s a lot.

Thank you to everyone who has viewed, used, commented on and enjoyed our photographs. We love them, and it looks like you do too.

To celebrate, we have been sharing seven of our images from the Commons in a seven day countdown to our 30 September birthday.
