Here's some useless trivia....
This banana photo is the most stolen image in my entire photo collection. I can't explain why - it's not really a remarkable photo. In fact, it's a quick handheld shot I nabbed from the parking lot of a hostel I stayed at in Costa Rica.
I discovered that the photo has been stolen for all kinds of websites, blogs and myspace accounts by using my website statistics software. The software helps me track which pages and photos on my site get the most traffic, and where the traffic comes from (it's a very good tool for optimizing your website). Every time I check the stats, this photo comes out number one - often getting thousands of hits. Who knew a banana photo would be so popular? It's a strange world we live in.
