Inspired Photography

In another medium jumping use of the Flickr API, I found PhotoTimeCapsule, from the photography geeks at Photojojo comes.

Every couple weeks, the Time Capsule looks at your Flickr account for photos you took a year ago. It picks the ones that are most interesting — the ones that got viewed the most, favorited the most, and commented on the most — and sends them to you in email.

That’s it!

You’ll be amazed by how wonderful it is to get a photo blast from the past.

When you sign up they send you a test run post so you can see the an example of what you’re about to get regularly. It’s truly amazing how much fun photos (not just photography) can be when you put them to work. As I scrolled through the first email time capsule, I was getting a little misty by the photos of the baby only a few months old. Photos I’d forgotten all about had been brought to life.

And of course, my other favorite Flickr API-based application, FlickrFan. It turns your Flickr photostream into an amazingly captivating, TV-like experience. It’s amazing what a little motion and a lot of screen real estate can do!
