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 (a new post!) 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 the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

What Would You Miss?

February’s theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers is: What Would You Miss?

Without a doubt I would miss Chinese traditional markets if they disappeared. I do worry that the supermarket might replace these charming open air markets.

Grapes & Plums


I bought some of the plums pictured above and they were outstanding.

I’m reminded of the William Carlos Williams poem:

This Is Just To Say


I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
