The Flickr Game

I am following Tally's suggestion to play the Flickr Game

Here are the rules:
Go to flickr.com
Type into the search the answer to the following questions.
Choose a picture only from the first page that opens.
Copy the url of the picture and
paste it into the mosaic maker.
You than can upload your mosaic to flickr and/or whatever you got.

Here are the questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name.

I have been quite surprised by the results that came up for my answers, there was a certain truth and synchronicities in these. For example, I kept getting images relating to India, and the same funny little dog appeared 3 or 4 times (I am from the Dog sign in the Chinese astrology). We did this for my boyfriend, and guess what... half-naked women kept popping up grrr...

However when I typed the name of my highschool "Lycée François Premier", I was appalled, for what came up were the images of a recent riot in a highschool visited by our current prime minister François Fillon. France is in a really bad shape at the moment. Look here.

And here are the credits for the pictures :

1. vernissage exposition helene schmitz, 2. paal-payasam-1, 3. L'Elephant sur l'Ile phénoménale, 4. Bosque by Twilight Star Trails, 5. ShahRukh Khan, 6. Tea Corner..., 7. What does the future hold?, 8. Sticky date toffee pudding..., 9. dandy drop, 10. 25 of April Bridge, 11. abandonview.lab.studio.clusterfuck, 12. Beija-flor Tesoura (Eupetomena macroura) - Swallow-tailed Hummingbird 8 479 - 10

It seems as if you have to save the picture to your own account before posting.
Oh, and I was so curious.

That mosaic maker is the kind of tool i was lookin for when i built this very small forum somme years ago . remember ? i tried to make a banneer with all the member's avatars, and the banneer should have updated itself automatically when any member changed his avatar.

Some kind of collective artwork, but it never worked very well ...

BTW i'm glad for you that all this creativeness seems to contribuer à ton équilibre (oh et puis flute hein ! lol !)
