This is just a little something different, sometimes I’m going to feature a random photo from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a good way to highlight other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you fans enjoy it!
