About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 35,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 68 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 112 posts. There were 150 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 247mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was November 4th with 704 views. The most popular post that day was Why the Hollywood Sign Isn’t Lit (and Never Will Be).

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were la.curbed.com, facebook.com, en.wordpress.com, jalopyjournal.com, and search.aol.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for blade runner, howard hughes, julia child, bladerunner, and mary astor.
