I don’t know if retrievr is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, or a sign that some people have far too much time on their hands… but I do know that I’ve just spent the past hour playing around with it and having a great time!

What retrievr allows you to do is draw a bad sketch in a box, then it tries to match your sketch with photos from the flickr library. It has varying degrees of success, but whether successful or not, it’s a truly pleasant and original way of randomly searching flickr. But be warned… you’ll be there for ages, and see lots of photos you might not otherwise have encountered, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    I decided to close the tab before ending up sitting at it for hours.
