I'd pre-create the archive in advance. Use dates as Ids, and have the
archive page only list past photos. The homepage would show the photo for
today. Simple and sweet. Or you could use a Python Script/Python
Method/External Method/DTML Method (whatever you prefer) called
currentPhoto or something that does the calculation for you and return the
correct object to the caller.
