Me Mosaic Meme

This is all pennywhistle's fault. You answer twelve questions about yourself. You enter each answer into Flickr's search engine. You pick a photo from the first three pages of results and put its URL into this rather cool mosaic-maker.

Then you post the resulting mosaic in your blog.



Me Mosaic

The questions were:
  1. First Name: Anne (Queen Anne's lace)
  2. Favorite Food: French bread (boulangerie)
  3. Hometown: Portland
  4. Favorite Color: Um...are you sensing a theme?
  5. Celebrity Crush: no comment.
  6. Favorite Drink: Single malt scotch (behold the mothership)
  7. Dream Holiday: Walking in Europe (that's the Dordogne)
  8. Favorite Dessert: Cheesecake
  9. What I Want To Be When I Grow Up: Wise
  10. What I Love Most In The World: The beach
  11. One Word That Describes Me: Powerful
  12. My LiveJournal Name: DarkEmerald

The answers are there if you highlight.

It did take me a long time, but how better else to spend a Sunday morning than doing a pretty meme? ^_^

YUM, CHEESECAKE! Your mosaic pictures go together really well ^_^

The favorite-color question gave me a theme idea, and then I had to go back and find all new pictures with less color in 'em, and of course the black and white one of Jensen Ackles was perfect, and then I realized that it and the Buddha were the only ones not actually in color--the rest are just highly desaturated scenes.

*breathes*

Anyway, it was a really fun and creative meme.

Do you have to be a flickr member to make this work, cause I just spent an hour on this and it's not giving me a mosaic to post, just the urls. :-(

I don't think you have to be a Flickr member (though I am), but you DO have to set the advanced search to show you only the "some rights reserved" photos, because the copyright ones won't give you the real URL.

Otherwise, I'm not sure. That was a lot of work to go through to wind up with nothin'!

Well, I ended up just saving the picture to my computer. And then I couldn't get Paint to open it. It just kept shutting down. And then I couldn't get it to load to photobucket. Dude. I gave up and then tried again this afternoon and finally got it posted. Yay!

I went and saw yours and commented. Bummer that it took so much perserverance, but I'm glad you took the trouble because the result is very nice.

I'm pretty sure I spent at least two hours on it. It's a time sink all right. I will go over and take a look at yours right now.
