imgSeek is one I have bookmarked that looks slick: http:// 
www.imgseek.net/

There is another system similar to this with an online demo, but I'm  
not sure what its URL or name is off the top of my head, sorry.

Lucene could be at the heart of such a system, but it would require  
codifying images textually somehow.
