The Dreckly Kid Gave Birth to Plymouth Daily Photo [UK] Nine Years Ago

"The Dreckly Kid" is the nom de plume of a Cornish blogger who began Plymouth Daily Photo nine years ago, on February 11, 2011.  Most appropriate for a month in which the theme has been "Streetscape," The Dreckly Kid's fist post was both a streetscape and a waterfront scene.

His blog post told us that in the past, Plymouth's Sutton Harbour was home to an important fishing fleet and a wide range of commercial maritime activity, and its quays were busy with warehouses, processing and repair facilities. Nowadays it is home to a major marina complex and its quays are lined with apartments and a bewildering range of restaurants, bars, clubs and pubs.  Here is a more recent photo.

"Streetscape" is the February Theme

In 2020 the monthly themes for City Daily Photo bloggers are designed to showcase various elements of our cities.  On February 1, the theme is "Streetscape."  So, show a typical streetscape from your city, or an unusual streetscape, or a favorite streetscape.  Your call.

In Naples, Florida, the heat and summer rains lead to rapid, lush growth.  In some older parts of the city, trees have grown together to form a shady canopy.  This is 18th Street South in Naples.

Merry@Syracuse Rarely Skips a Day

For ten years -- starting on January 1, 2010 -- Merry@Syracuse has documented her upper New York environs just about every day.  Text is rare, and Merry doesn't cultivate many followers, nor does she tell anything about herself.  But, she is metronomically consistent.  It is worth a visit.  Thanks for being such a consistent member of the City Daily Photo community.

A Dozen Years (Plus) for Christchurch Daily Photo

On September 6, 2007, Michelle started a photo blog as an excuse to ‘take photos’ and also ‘learn WordPress.’  Thus was born Christchurch Daily Photo, still going strong more than a dozen years later.  Three years into the life of her blog, Christchurch suffered severe damage from an earthquake, posing a dilemma for Michelle.  Her solution was not to focus on the damage, but, rather, on the recovery.  Michelle seems like a wise woman.

Michelle is a Christchurch website designer and amateur photographer living in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Take a look and say 'congratulations!'

Rainbows Everywhere on December 1

The theme for December is "Rainbow."  So many ways to illustrate that theme.  For this announcement, let's go with a traditional rainbow, the one that greeted me as I disembarked from a week cruising the Greek islands.  How will you illustrate "Rainbow" on December 1?

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?
