Flickr: TFlickr; // this is our basic object
// you need an API key. You can get one from Flickr
Flickr := TFlickr.Create(EdtAPIKey.Text);
// authentication is needed for some calls
// this will return a TPeople object, with some properties filled (e.g. Id)
People := Flickr.PeopleFindByEmail('firstname.lastname@example.org'); // connects to Flickr
// some other properties must make a new connection to Flickr to get filled
// these details are cached for future calls
Print(People.Realname); // connects to Flickr
Print(People.Location); // no need to connect to Flickr
