Featured Flickr Phins Photo

Here is a little something out of the ordinary, every now and then I’m going to share a random photograph from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a great way to show off 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 all enjoy it!
