Track the Worldwide Photographic Zeitgeist with Flickrvision
Astronauts have it tough. Sure, they get to float in Zero-G and wear cool spacesuits and drink all the Tang they want. But we all know it can be lonely out in space. We feel for you, space men. (And women.) So weâ€™ve thought of something that would help: giant binoculars. You know, so you can see us down here waving at you.
Fortunately for those astronauts, weâ€™re not the only ones down here trying to make the world a little less lonely. Flickrvision swoops around the Google globe Superman-style, pausing every few seconds to show a photo that somebody, somewhere in the world, uploaded to Flickr just minutes ago.
People all over the world take photos, and Flickrvision tracks the worldwide photographic zeitgeist.
Our recent world tour showed us an adorable couple at the Great Wall, mermaids on parade at Coney Island, an Italian castle, and a hummingbird in Ohio. Wouldn’t that make the cold, vast, emptiness of space feel a little bit more warm and cozy?
