And going one further, a search for openstreetmap on flickr comes up with a
nice assortment of images, most of which one would hope are CC licensed (or
should that be ODbL - aargh, let's not go there!).

And in fact there's an OpenStreetMap group on flickr

Paul if you're willing to pick out a good assortment (from those sources or
elsewhere) I think that would be great!
