Let's Appreciate Luis Gomez and One Photograph a Day



Luis Gomez is a freelance photographer and photojournalist who moved to Washington, DC, in 2003 from Caracas, Venezuela. During his 35 years as a photographer, he has traveled the world collecting images for work and pleasure.  

Luis is a longtime member of the City Daily Photo community and longtime publisher of his "One Photograph a Day" photo blog.  How long?  Who knows.  The blog doesn't include information about its start.  But, regular readers have come to enjoy his eclectic taste in photographs, and especially his tilted perspective.  Good work, Luis.  Keep 'em coming.

"City People" is the Unlikely August Theme


What were we thinking?  "City People?"  The themes for 2020 are organized around viewing your city in a wide variety of aspects.  When the monthly themes were chosen in late 2019, no one expected that a pandemic would empty city streets of people or that those found would be keeping away from others while masking their faces.  

Don't you miss the days when we could sit in a crowd like this for n outdoor4 concert?  Can you look at an image like this today without flinching at the absence of social distancing?  Still, give it a try.  Let's see what creative way you can come up with to show the people of your city.  "City People" is the theme on August 1.

The View From Squirrel Ridge Informs Us About Virginia's Western Regions


For fifteen (repeat, FIFTEEN!!!) years, Linda Walcroft has been posting prolifically about the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in The View From Squirrel Ridge.  She shows us old barns, country roads, city scenes, historic sites and the regional flora and fauna, interspersed with current and old family photographs.  For Linda, the blog seems like in part a way to chronicle her region, in part a way to applaud, critique and bring attention to current local issues, and in part a way to create an online family journal.  Whichever trail(s) she is traveling on a specific day's post, it is always interesting and entertaining.

Linda's profile catalogs a varied career, including youth club organizer, secretary, administrative assistant, portrait photographer, technical writer, and webmaster.  Now semi-retired, Linda spends a lot of time with her camera and computer.  We are richer for her choices.

A Decade for Karl in Bolzano!



Karl Demetz shows us daily photographic wonders from his beautiful mountainous region of  northeastern Italy, near the border with Austria.  His images are noted for their clarity, color and composition.  And, he has been doing it for ten years!  Well done, Karl.

Show Us a Park in Your City on June 1



A gem of Hartford, Connecticut, is Elizabeth Park, about one hundred acres of formal gardens, green space, recreational facilities, walking loops, and the Pond House Café.  It is nationally known for its Rose Garden, the first municipal rose garden in the United States and the third largest rose garden in the country today.  The roses peak in the third week of June.  This is a 2011 photo from my archives.

On June 1, the City Daily Photo bloggers will show photographs on the subject of "garden," as part of a full year plan to showcase specified parts of their cities on the first day of each month.

Funchal Daily Photo is Eleven



Late last month Paulo Camacho's Funchal Daily Photo celebrated its eleventh anniversary.  The city of Funchal, is the capital of Madeira Island, known as the "Pearl of the Atlantic".   Madeira is a Portuguese island, off the coast of Morocco.  It is backed by hills, and known for its harbor, gardens and Madeira wine cellars. The centuries-old Funchal Cathedral, which mixes Gothic and Romanesque styles, is notable for its carved wooden ceiling. Fronting the harbor is the São Tiago Fortress, built in the 1600s. It now houses the Contemporary Art Museum, with a large collection of Portuguese works.

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?
