BikingToronto Flickr Group passes 6,000 Photos!

If you don’t know about it, over on Flickr there is a BikingToronto Group.

It’s been around a few years, and it a great source of cycling (and photo) inspiration for myself.

Every page of BikingToronto has recent photos from the group showing up on the right side of the page (scroll down a bit), but I thought now was a perfect time to do a little post about it, as the Group’s “photo pool” has recently passed 6,000 photos (you have to be logged into flickr to see all of them… due to permissions each photographer sets on each photo, only about 5,800 are visible to non-members).

If you like photographing bikes in Toronto, you should definitely add your photos to the BikingToronto Group.  Here’s why:

  • Allows you to network with other people who like photographing bikes in Toronto
  • Have your photos show up on BikingToronto (mentioned above) … I’m also trying to work out the tech of getting a section of BikingToronto up and running that will update with your awesome photos automatically
  • All my favourite photos in the group I share on the Biking Toronto Facebook Page (1400 fans currently) as well as the Biking Toronto Twitter account (9400 followers currently), giving your photos more exposure to Torontonians who love bikes
  • Every once in a while I make the Biking Toronto Facebook Page cover photo from a photo in the Group… and give big props to the photographer.

I’m also working on some ideas for really promoting bike photography in Toronto. Stay tuned.

Here’s a small sample of some of my favourite photos that have shown up recently in the Biking Toronto Flickr Group. Click each photo to go through to the photo’s page on Flickr and see more photos from that photographer.

FACEPALM: Old man yells at bicycles, and fish
