Are you a Wednesday Journal reader who, despite gluing yourself to the newspaper every Wednesday, somehow missed the cool photo on last week's front page? Or are you merely a curious Oak Park resident who wants to look back at our photos of the rooster and chicken duo wandering around Oak Park alleyways?

Never fear! Wednesday Journal has a newly revamped Flickr account where you can see sets of photos from our coverage as well as interesting shots from your fellow community members that we've found. Readers can soon browse through sets of photos to catch what they might have missed throughout the week's coverage. But won't just be news – we'll also include from photos from our archives - such as a set of old archived photos to quench the thirst of the average Oak Park history buff – as well as shots from behind-the-scenes at Wednesday Journal.

Connect with us on Flickr to see newspaper photo sets, as well as any photos from coverage we publish during the week.

Have some photos you want us to see? Wednesday Journal is on the lookout for fun, interesting or off-the-beaten-path shots of things in the community to add to our reader photo galleries. Your photo might even be selected to appear on the homepage of – the most trafficked news website in Oak Park.
