Flickr’s Season Wheel


Flickr has has come up with a clever way to show the changing colors of the year using a circle of color bands. The color streams widen and narrow as their distribution changes throughout the year.

The samplings come from thousands of photographs of the Boston Commons archived on the Flickr site.

Boston Magazine designer Heather Burke assembled this design combining the seasonal bands with a few source photos.

Bizarre, but interesting none the less! I like how much movement is involved. Carries us through the seasons a little more gracefully than my own stilted perceptions, oh is it spring yet?!
