Number of photos in a geographic photo search

I've been using the library to make queries in specific geographic areas, such as photos taken in New York City or Paris. I'm surprised how few photos are being returned. For instance in NYC I get only 320 photos to page through. Is there some aspect of the API I've missed, that's limiting the number that is returned? I just set a bounding box location and some of the optional fields to be returned for each photo. I noticed that even if I used the bounding box built into the API for the USA I only get 2416 images returned to page through. Something must be up, perhaps this is a limit of the flckr API? I'd like to get a much big set of images back for these cities. Any ideas people? Thanks, Nic

Have you tried setting the Accuracy - I believe that has a significant effect on the number of photos returned.
