Interesting uses of photos on Flickr

I've recently come across a couple of clever uses of photographs from Flickr, which makes me want to learn how to use the Flickr API, which I hear is quite straight-forward.

The first example uses ‘Flickr as a paintbrush‘, which means colouring a map of an area using the average colour (actually, the average hue), of photos taken at different points on that map (which requires photos to be geotagged).

This blog is still in the planning stages, but one category I’m sure it will have is Chinese. One of the reasons for this blog is to create a central deposit for the ever increasing online resources for language-learning I have come across.
