Let's See You Rock'n'Roll on November 1

So, the October theme of "Sensual" posed its challenges, didn't it?  On November let's turn up the volume with "Rock'n'Roll."

Those who look at my own blog -- Naples and Hartford in Season -- recognize that (a) when I am in Connecticut I often visit the gorgeous nearby gardens in Elizabeth Park, and (b) on Wednesday evenings in the summer I often photograph the dancers at one of Elizabeth Park's free concerts near the rose garden.  Here is one happy couple rocking up a storm.  How will you portray "Rock'n'Roll" on November 1?

Later this month Michel Benoit celebrates the conclusion of his first decade of consistent daily blogging at Avignon.  Michael does a splendid job of honoring his beautiful and historic home city on the Rhone River through a mix of his own photographs, historic photographs and a variety of Avignon-related memorabilia. 

Since I was fortunate to be in Michael's lovely city just two weeks ago, I will honor his blog by posting my own Avignon photograph, too.

The Theme for October 1: Sensual!

OK, last month's theme of "Photographing the Photographer" was easy.  Maybe this month's theme will be hard.  "Sensual!"  How will you illustrate that theme?  Will you be funny?  Will you be modest?  Will you be R-rated or even X-rated?  City Daily Photo does not employ any censors, though maybe your blog host does.  We look forward to seeing the results of your artistic eye and your creativity.

11 Years of Photoblogging Sydney for Jim

On September 20, 2006, Jim showed his first photographs of Sydney, Australia, on his new photoblog.  Since then, Jim has been one of City Daily Photo's most consistent bloggers.  Sydney - City and Suburbs has shared its beautiful city with other CDP bloggers concentrating on Sydney, but Jim and his blog have outlasted most.  

Well done, Jim.  We look forward to many more years.

A Tenth Birthday for "Out and About in New York City"

On September 13, 2007, Daryl began a photo blog to show everyone what she saw as she went about her daily life in New York City.  Subways and taxis.  Flowers.  Dogs.  Cops.  Workers.  Water towers and skyscrapers.  In two weeks Out and About in New York City begins its second decade.  Daryl writes in a free form poetic style and she favors vertical layouts for most of her photos. Good work, Daryl.

Ten Years for Christchurch Daily Photo on September 6

On September 8, 2007, a web designer in Christchurch, New Zealand, was motivated to start her own daily photo blog to record things she loved about her city.  That was an important decision by Michelle Sullivan in unexpected ways.  In 2010 and then again in 2011 Christchurch was hit by severe earthquakes that devastated the city.  Michelle's previous images preserve a key record of many structures that were lost.

Michelle tries to post one or more photos every day, but, like most of us, sometimes life intervenes and keeps her away.  Still, she has been a regular contributor within the CDP community, and her blog now serves an even more critical purpose for her city.

Photographing the Photographer . . . CDP's September Monthly Theme

This gentleman had a monstrous lens mounted on his camera.  The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary has many native birds.  On a typical day, one encounters quite a few serious birders and quite a few serious photographers.  He had a particular bird in mind and was waiting patiently for it to appear again.  I am less committed to bird photos, so I sneaked a shot of him and moved on.

"Photographing the Photographer."

We probably all do it.  Which one will you show on September 1?

Actually, it will probably be first on Facebook, or Twitter, or maybe you'll hear about it from the nice old guy next door. Whatever the case, if you have news to share, how about sharing it with us, so we can share it with everyone and actually make these pages useful?
