Visual search

This post could also be titled: Photos that speak, because every one of them speaks of an incredibly interesting back story & because that back story isn’t available to us, we absorb the photo and create our own back story.
But the visual search idea is what intrigues me. Most everyone knows how to find information; how to google. But I suspect not so many people use Google Advanced Search and even less try, when searching for information about an idea, do image searches so as then to locate relevant information based on the image. Obviously you can do this via Google image search, but Flickr is also an incredibly rich research tool, especially when you consider it hosts over 3 billion photos!!!
