Wishing (I had a Photograph of Blue)

I came across this unusual search engine. It searches the Flickr site and rather than use words to find file names and tags, it filters by selecting colours. This is useful if you want an image of an Alfa Romeo, but might be helpful if you want an abstract picture to match an existing colour scheme.

The same article linked to another image search engine that combines text searching with a few other tools, including a single color filter. This is not as radical as the first one, but is still more flexible than regular image search in Google or on Flickr.
