Though the photo-sharing site Flickr decided to make it unnecessarily difficult (we think) to share photos last year, we still received many great submissions from our readers, some of which are featured in the slide show above.

To make things easier this year, we’re inviting you to simply email us any photos you’d like us to consider for The Big Something from your phone or computer to thebigsomething@krcc.org and we’ll then put the photos we select to feature up in our Flickr pool and give you credit.

Of course, we’ll continue to feature historic images from the Pikes Peak Library District, The Pioneers Museum, and others. Of course, if you have or want to create an account, you can still share photos with us on our Flickr page, too.
