Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

University Freshmen Marching

On the one hand, these marching freshmen are near. They’re right on campus close to my apartment and workplace. Yet the idea of two weeks of mandatory military marching for all university students is just so far from my way of thinking. The poor kids have to march from 6 am till late at night. There are breaks, but it’s hours of marching. Girls march in their own units.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use a “postaday2012″ or “postaweek2012″ tag.
