Do you like Memes? How about Monday Mural!

Many City Daily Photo bloggers like to participate in memes other than our own monthly theme day. Some are sponsored by CDP members, others are sponsored by non-CDP members.  A good meme is Monday Mural, sponsored by CDP member Carolyn, the blogger behind Oakland Daily Photo.  Like murals?  Go visit her blog on a Monday or link your own mural photo.

The August Theme: Young at Heart

Don't let me interrupt you.

The monthly theme for City Daily Photo bloggers on August 1 is "Young at Heart."  How will you illustrate the theme?  Young lovers?  Children playing?  An older person dressing or acting young?

Eight Years for Gunn and Stavanger Daily Photo

A week ago Gunn celebrated the eighth anniversary of the start of her blog, Stavanger Daily Photo.  Gunn lives in an old city on the southwestern coast of Norway, visited by many cruise ships and home to Norway's oil exploration industry.   Her images can't be typecast.  Sometimes visitors to Stavanger.  Sometimes shop scenes, other times nature.  Often the images are from the harbor, like this one.  And, when we are lucky, Gunn shows us something from Old Town Stavanger, the well-preserved historic neighborhood of white buildings with red roofs.  Thank you for your steady contributions to the City Daily Photo community, Gunn.

A Dozen Years in the Shenandoah Valley . . . Wow!

On June 13, 2005, Linda made her first post on The View From Squirrel Ridge.  Twelve years and one week ago!  Linda likes to drive around her home in western Virginia and show us historic sites, farmland, festivals, and barns.  (Linda also has a fondness for ducks and geese on ponds.)  Congratulations on your consistent and impressive record of photographing your world, Linda.

Austin Hits Ten!

Linda Ball and Forest Preece started showing images from their home of Austin, Texas, on May 17, 2007.  This active couple go on walks, visit friends, attend cultural events, shop and otherwise just live their lives in Texas' quirky capital city.  They photograph the fancy stuff but more often they just photograph the simple every day stuff around them.  And, unlike some of our City Daily Photo bloggers, it is not uncommon for a photograph of Linda (or LB) or Forrest (or FFP) to find its way onto Austin, Texas Daily Photo.  That is FFP crossing the bridge after a movie and heading toward their home in the city.

Eleven Years and Still at It in St. Paul, Minnesota

What can we say about Kate?  Since May 30, 2006, retired English teacher (and retired flight attendant!!!) Kate Mura has been sharing love notes to her home in St. Paul, Minnesota.  She began with a "Welcome" sign from the school from which she had retired after teaching for 26 years.  And, she put into words the thought that many of use have eventually arrived at, namely, that by taking photographs she was learning how to see more clearly.

Over the years, we have said goodbye to a long-time furry walking companion and cheered as Wild Wendy recently entered her life.  Kate shares weekly images of women in her world, shares walks around her neighborhood, lets us celebrate family anniversaries with her and invites us to attend art exhibitions and cultural events.  Congratulations, Kate, for eleven excellent years of Visual St. Paul.

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?
