Flickr Redux

All_red_1 This one is going to be a little different:

Although I’ve linked to flickr 166 times in the past, I never really dug into this site until recently. With an inventory of over 100 million photos you will never discover everything in it anyway. So here are just a few sets from this Treasure's Trove. Please feel free to add your favorite flickr moments in the comments below.

There are thousands of interesting sets and tags you can explore. A random few: (On all sets you may move the speed dial on top to one or two seconds, if you want to browse quicker through the slide shows):

Ray guns and Air conditioners

Empty Seats

Me and a Mirror
