1. Each week, WordPress will 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 Wednesday 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.
Just a few wonderful posts:
Browsing Cee’s blog to prepare for her Fun Foto challenge, I saw that Debbie of Travel with Intent has a one word challenge and this week it’s orange. I’m a bit late, but will participate on time in the future.

Hmm. What to search for for this prompt. I suppose I’ll go to Flickr Commons and search “girl posed.”
I did and here’s a few photos I found.

A Happy Bull
For the letter H, this week Cee challenges photographers to post photos on their blogs that depict that which is happy. Here’s my interpretation.

Friends in Pekanbaru, Indonesia
This week’s Sepia Saturday inspires bloggers to search through archives and find photos on travel, overcrowding, blankets or I’d say carriages. Though kids are back at school, September’s a good month for traveling. My aunt and uncle are soon off to Russia and other friends are off to Wyoming. I’ll leave for China on Thursday so travel came to mind.

How romantic the life of circus performers on the road must have been back then.

Above is a ferry, so the journey’s not long. It carries dock workers.

The last photo was taken at a train station, I’m not sure where, but somewhere in the US.

Mr. Peabody (r) and Sherman (l)
When I was growing up I loved watching Mr. Peabody & Sherman’s cartoons as they traveled to various historical events. Now all the kids who have no idea who this famed pair is can see Mr. Peabody, the genius dog, and his boy Sherman right wrongs throughout time and space. The film, which I saw on a plane, captures the heart and soul of the original. Bravo!
The film moves quickly and is witty enough for adults and offers history with a spoonful of sugar for the young. I’m telling everyone I see that they should check this out whether they have kids or not. It’s just a fun film.
