Let It Snow on Flickr

I just read this article on Flickr Development Blog, found it’s fun and interesting.

Let It Snow:

Last holiday season, we got around to making it snow on photo pages – just for the fun of it. If you happen to be on a photo.gne page and add ?snow=1, it might still even work.. We’ve also used a variant of the effect in the past for beta feature sign-up sequences, complete with cheesy MIDI renderings of “The Girl From Ipanema.” Again, this was “just because”; sometimes the web is most entertaining when it’s most unexpected. If you can occasionally make your users smile, giggle and laugh when using your site, chances are you’re doing something right – or, you’re running a comedy site that’s going downhill.

Take a look at this video:

And this flickr page:

It’s snowing!

How can you do that on your own flickr photo page? It’s quite easy. Just add your photo url with ?snow=1.

I did it for my photo page here, awesome, haha.
