The CDP theme for December is local history. Every place in the world has stories behind it. The illustration here is from the museum beneath St. Louis’ Gateway Arch. Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau were the French traders who founded the place in 1764. Chouteau expressed optimism, but that was then and this is now. Today CDP members tell local tell local tales from around the world.

November Gallery – My Favorite Part Of Town

The CDP theme for November is my favorite place in town. This is very personal.  Every town and every photographer is different. If you don’t live in a town you might want to use your region. Tell us why it is your favorite. City Daily Photo members around the world will tell you where to hang out when you visit.

October Gallery – Transportation

The CDP theme for October is transportation. How do you get from A to B, whether it’s from Alice’s to Bob’s or Anchorage to Brasilia? You are not likely to fly to the moon, as suggested in the example, but we can dream. CDP members around the world will show us their preferred means of locomotion.

September Gallery – Bottle

The CDP theme for September is bottle. They are useful – they can contain liquids, gasses, powders, or, on a very good day, a genie. Bottles range from tiny perfume containers to double magnums of Bordeaux. As seen in this photo, they can be fake. CDP members will show us their flasks and contents from around the world.

August Gallery – Garden

The CDP theme for August is garden. They can be found in all climates and terrains, dry or wet, cold or tropical. A good one takes time and skill but the form is limited only by the imagination of the gardener. CDP members will show us their own gardens or those in their surroundings from around the world.

July Gallery – Climate

The CDP theme for July is climate. Everybody talks about it and far too few people do anything about it. In the area where this admin lives, it is common to see Porsche SUVs (even Maserati SUVs!) and houses so big they could house a score of refugees. City Daily members will show the effect in their local communities.

June Gallery – Smile

The City Daily Photo theme is Smile. They can reflect a wide range of feelings. Think of a parent and baby, a sports champion or The Joker. CDP members may show us smiles of joy, love or something with a bit of an edge. The Linky is open from May 25 to June 5.

May Theme – Museums

The City Daily Photo May theme is museums. We might quickly think of our local art museum, if we have one, but there all sorts of museums about everything. What’s in your town? This picture, which I think has some sweet irony, was taken at the San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art. I’ll have something local and unexpected on the first of the month.

April 2023 Theme – My Favorite Toy

The CDP theme for April is my favorite toy. Those of us with some money to spend and who live in technologically advanced societies usually have lots of electronic gizmos to amuse us. But you don’t need a single working electron to play with a top, a kite or a sock puppet. I’m afraid that I’m in the first category. My iPhone is probably my second favorite toy. Number One will be revealed on theme day itself.

March Theme Day – Comfort Food

The CDP theme for March is comfort food. When we are anxious or depressed or lonely, there is some edible treat that will that will sooth our minds and hearts, as well as our appetite. City Daily Photo has members all over the world so the range of treats is bound to be wide.  The Linky will be open for the next week.

The illustration is my granddaughters, Ellie and Audrey, snarfing down birthday cake some years ago. Their birthdays are two days apart although their ages are two years apart. Pure pleasure.
