2005 – an interesting year on flickr

Update 2:

This is a very old page imported from my previous blog. If there is missing content below or anything that doesn’t make sense then please check the page on my old blog.

With the release of a new method on the Flickr API it is now possible for us to find the most interesting photos on a given day. I’ve combined this with the excuse that it’s a new year and put together a little toy which lets you look back over the most interesting photos of 2005…

The toy shows you the 15 most interesting photos from this date a year ago… You can click on a photo to find out more about it or you can drag the little slider at the bottom to choose a different day… Quite a cool way to discover some of the amazing photos on flickr!

Update

I carried on playing around with the idea and made a new version. In this version you can see the top 3 most interesting photos for five consecutive days. I thought that you would end up with the same photo staying at the top for a few days but I guess flickr’s interestingness algorithm stops that happening… Interesting, ey?
