Loving this Silverlight application and want to use a similiar view of hundreds of images

I got excited about digging into Silverlight after this website caught my eye:

http://memorabilia.hardrock.com/

I love the way it shows thousands of pictures and fills in the details of each as the bits arrive as time passes.  And I love the way there's an index on the left where users can filter the types of pictures they'd like to display.  So I'm wondering how to program this myself.

Is there a different LINQ query [associated with each index choice] which gets used to filter the images?  I prefer to use LINQ for this, although I'm sure there are many ways to skin that cat.

What else can you tell me about how to program this myself?  For example, do I need WPF or any other tools?  Or would I just need Silverlight to create this effect?

Thanks for the help.

The main thing about it is its use of deep zoom. You can download a tool to generate deep zoom images called deep zoom composer

There's a video about the hardrock memoribilia application here, and discussion:

That's cool.  But do you know if it can work dynamically, where the pictures for the canvas potentially change from one minute to the next?

Thanks,
