BusTrainFerry.com is my photo archive of my transit photos. In addition, it hosts a couple of other services for transit enthusiasts including T-Comm.
I wanted to build a site where I could showcase my transit photography. I was already uploading all my photos to Flickr, however, that was mixed up with other photos as well. I also didn’t want to add an additional burden of uploading photos to a separate site. Essentially, I needed something that focused on my transit photography, without requiring additional maintenance.
I decided to use the Flickr API to dynamically pull my photos from my Flickr feed as the data source for the site. I used the Kohana framework in PHP/MySQL to build the dynamic site.
