Tag Galaxy provides a lovely visual interface to search for and view photos from Flickr. In this example, I initially searched for 'badminton' and then added 'sports'. This found 1,846 photos!
When you select your initial tag you will be presented with a 'tag galaxy' (see figure 1). You can then refine your search by selecting one of the 'planets'. This produces the 'world', which you can rotate and zoom in/out (see figure 2).
Finally, you can select an image of interest and view it in crisp, clear detail (see figure 3). The link for the originating Flickr page is also given. Would be perfect if Creative Commons search was added!
