Together with another intern we built out this neat lil web app that tells you the weather and pulls a matching unsplash photo dependent on the weather near you
super fun and super proud of it

Can't you do something with the location? Maybe show a unsplash picture that's near the location a user enters?

we originally wanted to pull an image related to location but doing so would leave out too many people. we wouldn't get results from anyone who didn't live in a large city (or at least a well photographed one)
