When Night Falls in Your Location

Do you have pictures of your community at twilight, or as the sun is going down? Please consider joining the When Night Falls Flickr Group and sharing them with the world. They will then become a part of When Night Falls, a free 24 hour Elluminate session, the final event of the K12 Online Conference.

Add pictures of your community to share with the world during "When Night Falls”.

Here's how:
  1. Take or find photos of your community as night falls there.
  2. If you don't already have a flickr account, go to http:flickr.com and create an account.
  3. Upload those pictures to Flickr.
  4. Tag the pictures k12online07 and whennightfalls.
  5. Create a description that tells the location of the photos.
  6. Then join the When Night Falls group whose url is http://www.flickr.com/groups/whennightfalls/.
  7. To join the group, click on groups at the top of the flickr page.
  8. Search for: when night falls
  9. When you reach the page, click on join.
  10. Go back to the photos you uploaded.
  11. Send them to the group. The directions are here.
  12. They will appear on the photo page.
  13. If you like, you can geo tag your photos in flickr too. Here's a screencast showing how to do that. (3 min 20 sec)

NOTE: New flickr users should upload 5 pictures IMMEDIATELY. A real live human being will look at the account within 3-5 business days of the account being "primed" with 5 pictures and then add the account to public searches. DO NOT upload screen shots to flickr. They frown on that as they are a PHOTO sharing site and may not allow the account to appear in public searches. You need this to access all the rss goodness of your flickr group.
