Recovery.gov has Flickr group dedicated to documenting what Recovery projects look like across the country. And we are asking you to help take the pictures! If you see a Recovery project near you we would like you to take a picture and add it to our collection.
There are now two ways you can add photos to our Flickr group. If you already have a Flickr account you can upload them to our group here. Just remember to include a brief description and tell us where you took the picture. Or you can send your photo (as a .jpeg) with a short description to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it for you.
States and agencies are encouraged to submit their photos as well. We have already received great submissions from Washington State Department of Transportation, the Northern Region Forest Service, the Department of Energy, and the Tennessee Department of Transportation to name a few.
And while you’re here… take a few moments and browse almost 200 Recovery project photos that we have collected so far, and let us know what you think.
The official Recovery.gov Flickr site was launched to capture a national snapshot of those Recovery projects, from road construction and weatherization projects to health extension centers. We’d like your input. Take pictures of the projects in your neighborhood and upload them to our Flickr page. Your image will appear on our Images of Recovery page.
If you take the picture with your cell phone and it has GPS, your photo will appear on our geocoded Flickr map. Add an image from your state to the mix. Without you the big picture won’t be complete.
