There was a bug in the Google Ajax Slideshow code which meant that when you clicked on an image, instead of redirecting your browser to the source of the image, the slideshow would redirect your browser to the URL of the current page.
I’ve fixed that bug, thanks to some excellent advice from jgeerdes at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/google-ajax-search-api/Ljom17bulZc/UYg2154Nwp0J
