Fun little activity

My creation

I did this thing, which has been floating around the internets for a while, mostly as an excuse to search for random images on Flickr and see what happened. Fun and mostly harmless. (it did distract me from eating my lunch, and I might have dropped some pasta salad in my lap - oops.)

The Questions:
1. What is your first name? Ginger
2. What is your favorite food? pretzels
3. What high school did you go to? Dike HS
4. What is your favorite color? Orange
5. Who is your celebrity crush? Richard Dean Anderson
6. Favorite drink? Rhubarb Martini (this week)
7. Dream vacation? Walking tour of Ireland
8. Favorite dessert? fruit crisp (with any fruit, really)
9. What you want to be when you grow up? a jewelry designer
10. What do you love most in life?
(besides my husband and family?) Gardening.
11. One Word to describe you. optimistic
12. Your Flickr name. gingershana (there weren't any images with a match, so I chose my avatar image instead.)

If you'd like to do it too here's what you do:

Open three windows. One with the list of questions, another open to Flickr and ready to do an image search, and a third to Big Huge Labs' Mosaic Maker (create a mosaic with 4 columns and 3 rows). Answer the first question, put your answer in the search field on Flickr and choose one of the images from the first page to represent your answer. Click on the photo then copy and paste the url into the #1 spot on the Mosaic Maker. Do that for all 12 questions, then click create and post the results to your blog or Flickr page, or just save it to your computer.

The most interesting thing to me is to see what sorts of photos pop up that are seemingly unrelated to the search term I typed in. (I swear, for #10, I typed in 'gardening') It's also interesting that I seem drawn to the same colors within images, even if they are of completely different things. Green and orange, black and white...
