You Wanna Contribute? You Wanna Be a Part Of The Action?

By now if you’ve been reading GMG for any amount of time and clicked on any of the pictures you know that I host the pictures you see on the blog on my Flickr page.

From the Flickr page I can transfer the pictures you see here to the blog and search for different photos by title or subject matter.

To see my Flickr page you can click here to see what I’m talking about.

I highly recommend Flickr as a place to host your pictures online for several reasons-

  • For one, if you upload your pictures and add titles and tags to them you can always find them.
  • You can do searches within your photostream and create sets and slide shows based on the name tags you enter for each picture when you upload them.
  • If you upload your favorite pictures to an online photo hosting service like Flickr it doesn’t matter if your computer shits the bed because the pictures will be hosted on the Flickr servers so you don’t have to worry about losing them all when your computer becomes obsolete or crashes.

The reason I bring all this up and the point of this post is that I created a Good Morning Gloucester Group on Flickr in which you can join if you have a free Flickr account.   When you upload your pictures to Flickr  you have the ability to send them to different Groups (Good Morning Gloucester Group being one of them).  So we now have our own community group of GMG  pictures and if you add a Gloucester-centric picture to the GMG group I’ll likely add it to the Blog and give you credit.

I only added one picture so far, but it’s super easy to do with a click of a button once you join Flickr for free and upload a pic.

So open up a Flickr account, get to adding your pics and then join the Good Morning Gloucester Flickr Group

Chickity Check It- Hye Tyde

Hye Tyde is the blog from  John Hintlian which mostly chronicles his surfing journal but if you look below the surface of all the surfing pictures and surf pictures, his photography is spectacular and he bring a fresh new perspective to your standard photo/journal blog.

John is very creative with his photography and I enjoy perusing his flickr album as much if not more than Hye Tyde.  Check out his flickr album and see for yourself.
