Flickr really went to town with its automatically generated tags for my photo today. The photo was of star anise, which I took for the Challenge Friday Group; this week’s challenge is stars. A straightforward, simple photo of the spice, I thought but Flickr read a lot more into it.
This is the photo:
And these are the tags:
I deleted several of them before I thought of taking a screenshot for posterity but what is left gives you a flavour of the range of concepts that Flickr feels are relevant. Some of them I agree with (pattern, star shape, symmetry). Others I shall delete as they are of no help to anyone searching on them (foliage, leaf, landscape, tree, forest, blossom, pastel).
I do, though, rather like “minimalism” even though the structure and complexity of flavour and aroma of star anise is far from minimalist. It stays.
