Browse the Candy Blog Photo Archive

Jim Bumgardner of KrazyDad put together this completely awesome mosaic of the candy review photos from Candy Blog.


It runs on Flash and shows itty bitty thumbnails of over 1,000 photos I’ve taken over the past two years. Roll over one of them, and a larger one will pop up for closer view (and drool). Then click on the photo and it’ll take you to the page with the photo (and hopefully there will be a link to the review back here if I’ve done my captioning correctly). You can view the photos in a boring static mode here.

The mosaic will be updated periodically with new candy photos, so you’ll always be able to browse the archives in a way more befitting this eye candy.

Note: you’ll have to disable any pop-up blockers on the CoverPop site. Don’t worry, there’s no ads there. Not only that, he’s got a discount coupon code at Old Time Candy if you hafta hafta order something when you’re done. Check out Jim’s other Coverpops while you’re there, too.

  4. This is amazing, absolutely amazing.

    I really think you would see a traffic boost if you added a link from each photo on Flickr to the review on your site—and name the photo on Flickr instead of leaving it as the camera-provided name.

    Travis - I know, I know. It’s slow going. I’ve put a link back to the reviews in about half of them. But until this thing launched, I didn’t realize how important the name of the image was.

    Jeanna - check out all of KrazyDad’s stuff, he’s done some really incredible things with flash and flickr. The color pickr is awesome.

    Kat - hee!

  10. Gah, this is like a candy version of “Where’s Waldo?” I’ve been trying to find the Zero bar in there and haven’t found it yet! Any hints? wink

  11. You’re lucky. I got all distracted and caught up with the ufo, paranormal, cryptozoology page.

    And don’t the camera-assigned names reduce the Google Image Searches?

  12. Wow, that is hypnotic.  Seriously, I found myself staring at it like one of those *3-D dot pictures from the 90s.  I kept expecting some other kind of image to mysteriously appear. Like a bunch of dinosaurs or the satue of liberty.
    Very cool!

    *Those old posters once made a friend who was uable to see the image scream out in frustration “The emperor has no clothes!”
