I decided to upload a couple of photos last night. I found this site via Flickr, and it seems great. So I threw up four shots that I took yesterday, and one of the photos managed to gain some momentum. I still haven't quite figured out HOW, yet, which is what I'm hoping you can help me with. Throughout the day, I've been getting email notifications from 500px, notifying me that people have favourited my photo. How are they seeing this photo or finding it? Are these people just going that far back in the history of uploads?

Anyway, that's all I'm wondering. Help a guy out!
