A photo of mountain goats scaling a cliff, featured on Roger Eickholt's Flickr page, was all the rage on Monday. It was plastered on social media sites and around the blogosphere, driving more than 200,000 people to view it.
But nobody told Eickholt, who snapped the photo.
It wasn't until after he received my e-mail, requesting an interview a few days after the photo's popularity had run its course, that the 28-year-old amateur photographer from Alberta, Canada, checked his Flickr account to find his new audience. Eickholt says more than a hundred people added him to their lists of favorite Flickr users, meaning they'll be notified every time he posts a new photo. Before this week, he had two.
