Every day we, along with the strEATS DC, bring you the Food Truck Tracker. And everyday all of you fine readers add more pictures to our awesome We Love DC flickr photo pool so that we can continue to bring you snazzy, cool content.
Now this is somewhat of a personal plea, but my eyes (and I’m sure yours as well) grow tired of seeing the same pictures time and time again. So, my roving eaters, I’m asking you all to take a minute the next time you dine at a food truck, snap a picture and submit it to our flickr pool. Be it a picture of the truck, the long lines, the food–anything food truck related–we want to see it. Make sure you tag it with the label “food truck” when you add it to the pool. You’ll get credited and all the world will see your food truckeriffic photography, and you’ll give my eyes (and everyone else’s) something new to feast on.
I love Flickr. Here at We Love DC, we all love Flickr. Without your contributions to our pool, the site would be a lot less colorful. But one of my favorite things about Flickr is The Commons, where museums of the world post selections of their historic photography collections. It can be fun sometimes to spend an hour or two lost in a long-ago world, made all the more enlightening because so many of those photos show scenes of our very city: Washington. As we recover from last week’s snowstorm and as we’re currently dealing with another mess of a weather pattern, it seems like the right time to take a look back at how Washingtonians of the past dealt with winter.
This just in – the D.C. Public Library has joined the Flickr revolution and entered the Commons on Flickr. The Commons on Flickr is basically a place to share public photo archives and gives the public the opportunity to tag things and share personal knowledge.
