Project Description:
This graph is part of a series called Time Graphs. The project maps a large number of photographs from Flickr by time, in an attempt to use photos as datapoints in graphs (which in turn tell you something about the photos).

This diagram shows 15000 photos tagged with the word "sunset", taken throughout 2004. Their horizontal positions represent the day of the year the photo was taken. January is on the left, December is on the right. The vertical bars are the boundaries between months.

The vertical position represents the time of day the photo was taken, according to the EXIF data. The horizontal lines are hours, with the thick line in the middle representing 12 noon.

The deepest "dip" in the wave formed by the images is the Summer Solstice.
