Xy is a blur of constant motion as she readies her new classroom for the first day of school.

Update: Now that this photo has surpassed 10,000 views I've written a short piece about it.

    Hi - the motion blur really works on this photo - intentional or not.

    I thought you'd like to know I used your picture to illustrate a blog post about a school's tender for solar panel installation to include an element of educational value to their curriculum.

    Here's the post -

    Many thanks

    Thanks for the citation and also the comment. Now that I think about it the blur does kind of anonymize the pic a bit, making it perhaps more appealing as a stock-type photo.

    Thanks for sharing this photo in Creative Commons.

    I've used a cropped version of your photo in my Chinese blog entry setting out a topic for a group of online bloggers/authors,

    I also plan to use the same cropped picture as a banner for about 2 weeks when my online essay topic of "My Favourite Teachers" are posted and used on Sept 15, 2010.

    P.S. I've credited the photo to you (Flickr user @editor and linked back to your photo). Thanks again for sharing.
