Browse gorgeous photos at Flickr: five ways you can do this easily

flickrOne of the things I like to do when I'm actually supposed to be doing something else (like chores, or paying bills, or...you get the picture) is check out the fantastic photos at Flickr, one of the most popular digital photo communities on the Web today. There are quite a few ways you can look at Flickr images, but here are my five favorites:

  • Seven Day Slideshow: This shows you the most interesting photos for the last seven days in a nice slide show; you don't have to do any clicking, just watch.
  • Browse the Tags page: This page has all the most popular tags that Flickr photographers are tagging their photos with. It's an easy way to see what's bubbling up to the top of Flickr.
  • Galleries: Galleries are a group of photos (usually around 15-18) focused on a specific theme.
  • Flickr Clock: Videos taken at specific times, so, if you want to see a video of the sunrise, click around 5:30 AM or so.
  • Flickr Map: Pinpoints images submitted by Flickr users from all over the world on an interactive map.

There are even more ways to explore Flickr, for instance, the Last 7 Days Interesting photos, Most Recent Uploads, or the Explore Page. What's your favorite?
