Former GB staffer Luke has a challenge to all the photobloggers and Flickr-heads out there: more people in your photos. "Chicago is a city of 3 million people, but you'd never know it from its photoblogs and Flickr entries...The facelessness that results approaches misanthropy, and it gives the false impression that Chicago is a cold, vacant and inanimate place." Hop to it, photogs.
