Default Wow! What happened there?

I holidayed in the US & Canada at the beginning of May and, of course, took a couple of thousand photos. As I shoot in RAW they need developing. However, being totally disorganised I've only managed the first few days' worth.
Actually that previous paragraph is irrelevant. What this post is about is my viewing figures on Flickr. Most days they rumble along with a handful of views. Then I'll post some new photos and add them to a few groups and the viewing figures go up but are usually less than 100 per day. Very occasionally I'll get more than 100 but last week, something weird happened.
While in New York I had taken a photo of The Sphere in Battery Park (it was originally at WTC) and uploaded it to Flickr. Then someone asked if they could add it to their group and I said yes. Then it went mad! The daily views for this one photo were:
12th Aug - 4
13th - 4
14th - 110
15th - 166
16th - 196
17th - 124
18th - 82
19th - 56
today (so far) - 21

Not used to that much attention!

The photo in question is this:http://www.flickr.com/photos/webley/...n/photostream/

Congratulations on the sudden rise to fame! Possibly the draw is the WTC affiliation? Plus, it is an interesting subject.

I see the same thing when I upload to SmugMug. I think two things are happening a) there are the people you have given the link to and b) Google / Yahoo etc. can now find it if it is properly titled, so many people who you don't know will suddenly have access to your shots !
