Since we started The Big Something in June we’ve been asking readers to submit photos to our Flickr pool and featuring them in our daily emails with the idea of providing alternative views and visions of the Pikes Peak Region that go beyond the clichés. As we wrote when we started the pool:
A big part of the way we see ourselves as a community comes through the pictures we take and share. Few would dispute that Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods would be among the first images to come to mind when you say “Colorado Springs”; or that old steel mill smokestacks would come to mind if you say “Pueblo” and so forth. What we would like to do with our KRCC Flickr Photo Group is to create alternate visions of our region. And we want you to help us do it!
And that you have! Thanks so much to all the photographers who’ve been regular contributors. The slideshow above represents what we believe is the distillation of the first six months of this project and offers what we feel is a more rounded vision of the region. While the photos are not “the best” per se, they are among the most telling and compelling of what we had in mind. We set the slideshow to “I Wonder Who We Are” by The Clientele from their album Bonfires on the Heath, a favorite among our DJs this year.
If you’d like to join our Flickr pool and have your pictures conisdered for our picture of the day in the daily email, you can go HERE.
