“A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” Ansel Adams

This next Flickr tool site is, I believe, is just for fun. Since people take photos of everything someone came up with a great idea to spell using only pictures from Flickr. This site is barebones and straightforward. Just type in some words that you want to see and press enter, from there you will see a mix of photos that have been tagged with enough information to spell your choices. If you keep hitting the refresh button at the top of the browser it will constantly choose randomly from the Flickrverse. What can you do with all of this? You could use this in any project that calls for lettering. If you scrapbook or create presentations this might be a new way of putting it all together. Give it a try even if all you do is spell your own name.
