Posted on: June 21, 2011 | Comments(2) | Flickr | By: Daniel

I write from time to time on this blog. And if you follow this blog or my posts, you’ll notice I often write about Flickr. I mean, a lot.

To date we have uploaded 5,264 photographs or graphics. We have created 100 sets. We administer 11 groups. Our most viewed image has over 5,800 views. Will Power’s jump at Barber Motorsports Park this year has been favorited 26 times. And out most commented image, is Guess the Driver, with 16 comments. Oh, and we have 448 Flickr contacts.

I’ve been thrilled with our experience on Flickr so far (just a season and a half). We think you have too.

You’ve viewed our Flickr images over 2.5 million times. Thank you.

We do a bunch of stuff on Flickr you probably never really see. Obviously we title the pics and add descriptions. We also add tags or keywords – so it makes them easier to find. We add them to Sets to keep everything organized by race, announcement, or special event. We send them to specific Groups where our images live alongside, in harmony with images from other Flickr users. We add Teams to our photos. And we even Geo-Tag. Yes, Geo-Tag. I judge someone’s Flickr obsession based on this. We’re obsessed. Flickr geeks. This graphic below is an overview of all the images we shot at Iowa Speedway last year.

So, we take the whole Flickr thing pretty seriously. We’re trying to make your experience with our photography more interactive – testing your trivia. making you guess, or trying to challenge you with creative, new shots.

We’re always open to your suggestions. And we really, honestly want to hear from you.

How else are we going to make the 5,000,000 Flickr view mark?

    Love that shot of power. Epic! Also really digging IndyCar’s use of Flickr; it’s a fantastic way of sharing out photos to a wider audience than just having them on the website. There are some really talented photogs on staff!
