See your city through new eyes
Popular Tags on Flickr Photo Sharing
If you’ve lived in the same city for a while and feel like you’ve done everything, or even if you’re new in town and want to see all the sights your new home offers, you can always count on Flickr. This tip is simple: find the global public tag page for your city name (like Vegas, or NYC, or Denver), and subscribe to the RSS feed at the bottom of the page.
Now every time you open your reader, you’ll be greeted with some photos of your town. Sometimes you’ll get a ton of boring vacation photos from a stranger, but often (especially in small towns) you’ll find some surprises, like a bird watching park you didn’t know was on the outskirts of town or a behind-the-scenes tour of a local attraction you’ve enjoyed for years.
