Eat-My-Heart-Out Flickr pages

I figure this is the place for media, but I just wanted to share my favorite Flickr user pages in the entire world; this person (asian, probably) combs through all the food images on Flickr and puts together these tiled 9-image mosaics of favorite foods which also link to the original poster.
There are now two accounts because maybe this person reached a limit or something, but you really have to see it to believe it. Imagine posts like "Acrobatic Tea", "Eggplant, Vol. 2" "Scallion Pancakes, Vol. 3", "Roti Canai", "Guotie, Gyoza, Pot-sticker, Pan-fried Jiao(zi)" etc. It's really nuts and excellet food porn of the most amateur sort (not the beauty shots with depth of field, etc.) but mostly street food, humble food, and some real favorites. It's lovely to see all of the different iterations, from different parts of the world, for something like "asian bakery" and just a great collection.
This is the original account
And this is the second
Again, I don't know this person, but what this person is doing is really time-consuming, but incredible for us users. Everyone, take a look!
Thanks for the links, those are nice food photos, maybe a good place to refer to when someone is unfamiliar with what a given dish looks like.
Whew. Makes my head spin and my mouth water. At the same time. I agree with you about the different versions of similar dishes, brought together from all over Asia. I think a lot of this would be very publishable.
