To help get most value from my efforts I have created a Flickr id for my area and used it for photos of amenities, business hours, public buildings, local history links and potential cycling routes.

I've put all the data in osm as well and the hot links to and from Flickr work pretty well. (From image to osm is lower right under "Additional Information")
