We are now soliciting photos of the Sunset Bowl in Ballard. Please send your photos to the pool. We would also like to eventually post them (with your permission, of course; we will contact you via private mail before using your material) on our Sunset Bowl project web site along with audio interviews and videos. Note, the web page is a work in progress.

Group Description

...photographs documenting urban and built environments, urban life, people doing city-fied things, street scenes, signs and semiotics, markings and graffiti, and whatever makes your urban/suburban/exurban/whatev-urban environment meaningful.

Group Rules

We are looking for great photographs for possible inclusion in our Urban Archives Digital Collections, where they will be enshrined and institutionalized in a searchable, organized, academic repository/archives for use by researchers, citizens, and students alike.

For this reason, we like to work with Creative Commons Licensed photos. At some point, we will begin contacting possible donors individually to have them donate high-quality versions of their Flickr photos to our archives. We aim to have you retain your copyright to your images; however, he would like your permission for others to use them for research and non-commercial use.

Photographs without location information are somewhat useless to us. Please geo-tag your photos --either from a GPS or using the Flickr mapping feature-- before including them in the pool. Alternatively, note an address, intersection, or landmark in the description or the tages. The more information you have, the better. Also, if you have any other contextual information about the photo, its location, its history, or random notes/observations about the subject(s) of the photo, we would love to hear about that too.

If we would like to include your photograph in our collections, we will contact you and, besides permission, ask for further, more specific information about the photo, its location, its subjects of interest, and other context.
