Let’s kick things up a notch in the Greater and Lesser Washington Flickr pool! We love pretty pictures of the National Mall and neighborhoods like Dupont Circle and Capitol Hill as much as anyone, but we’d love to broaden our horizons a bit!

Specifically, we’d love to see more pictures of changing neighborhoods, mixed-use areas, and places beyond our region’s iconic neighborhoods.

Greater Greater Washington uses the Flickr pool as our first stop in looking for images for our posts, and we cover so many interesting places! We’re challenging you, our readers and Flickr pool contributors, to contribute pictures from all of these places. To get you inspired, this week we dug through the Flickr pool archives to pull some of the best of these kinds of images — specifically in Virginia.

Next time you’re in Carlyle, Columbia Pike, Fairfax’s Richmond Highway, Tysons Corner, or one of many other places GGW might write about, snap a photo! If you’ve never submitted to the Flickr pool, it’s easy to join and submit your own photos!
