I love Flickr. It’s an awesome photo sharing site. The developers are innovative and I believe this is one rare case where the Google offering (Picasa) isn’t the best:
- There are awesome online communities. People commenting, organizing groups, messaging each other, etc
- A lot of the images are Creative Commons licensed so they can be used for all sorts of things (they often pop up on Do Stuff in Cape Town)
- Flickr have opened up an API which allows other programs and websites to easily access their data
- They come up with interesting features like the Interestingness feature for finding great pictures
Every now and then I send Jules a mail with some of the best photos that I have seen recently on Flickr. I thought I would turn that mail into a blog feature. So, here is the first of the “Friday Five Flickr Fotos” series. Enjoy.
It took me a little while to figure this one out. A mostly submerged trolley in some reflective water. Nice effect
