Sometimes you know the moment you take a shot: this will be one of the more popular ones you have taken. That happened to me last April when in the tourist trap that is Shanghai's Old Town I saw this stand selling fans. The combination of the shapes, colours and textures made this an obvious hit and my fellow Flickrites did not disappoint me: it became my 19th shot to reach Flickr Explore (the 500 most interesting shots of the day), and the second to make the top 100.
