Ten Years for Our Portal Administrator (And Sunshine Coast Daily Photo)

What can we in the City Daily Photo community say about Peter Hyndman?  Second only to Eric Tenen of the now-closed Paris Daily Photo, Peter is THE MAN in the CDP community.  The original CDP portal crashed several years ago.  No problem.  Even though not a tech guy at the time, Peter taught himself how to cobble together a new portal, which he continues to maintain today.  (Don't look behind the curtain . . . Band-Aids and chewing gum are holding it together.)  And he pays for the Linky and all the other costs out of his own pocket.

Why?  Because Peter likes taking photographs and showing them.  The Queensland (Australia) Sunshine Coast Shires of Noosa and Maroochy merged with Caloundra City on March 15th 2008, so on that day Peter started Sunshine Coast Daily Photo.  Ten years without interruption, even though Peter and his wife spend most summers aboard a boat traversing European rivers and canals.  (Give yourself a treat and visit Fading Memories each summer.)

Peter, we are in your debt.  THANK YOU!

On March 1, the Theme is "Play"

Birds on a beach are for chasing.  Right?

Small City Scenes of Stanwood Hits a Decade

A couple of weeks ago "MB" hit a decade of publication of her "Small City of Stanwood" City Daily Photo blog.  MB lives in Stanwood, Washington, "up near the tree farm." She has horses, ponies, dogs, cats and plenty of fresh air.  Over the past decade, MB has shown us life in her quiet, small rural home town.  Recurring features are photos of the eagles that roost in her town.

Congratulations, MB.

"Tired" is the Theme for February

When you are two and missed your nap to go out picking pumpkins for Halloween decorations, the day can become pretty long.

So, how will you portray the idea of "Tired" on February 1?

The January 1 Theme is, as Always, "Photograph of the Year"

If it was too easy, can an image still qualify as your "Photograph of the Year"? Does effort factor in? What if it was not taken in the city where your City Daily Photo blog is located?

On vacation in East Africa in August, my safari vehicle came upon a couple of lions lying around not far from the road. We stopped and watched for a while. Soon a male stood up, yawned and then struck a perfect pose in silhouette, which he held for ten or twenty seconds. Hard to miss. Click.
For CDP purposes I will find one taken in my city, but to illustrate the point, here he is.

On January 1, welcome the new year with your best or favorite photograph from 2017.

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?
