A Photo a Week Challenge: Cityscape/Townscape


I love taking photos of cities. It’s a lot of fun to walk around while looking up at tall buildings, trying to figure out the best way to get a really cool picture. For smaller towns and villages, I love finding the town center to get that shot that makes everyone go “Where did you take that?” For this photo, it’s Rothenburg, Germany.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. Beautiful image…

    It’s always interesting to watch people and their activities in a beautiful setting like this.

    Let me search and try to find if I have anything interesting in my archive to be part of this weekly challenge 🙂

  2. City photos are the most fun. We don’t get into a real city very often these days. Uxbridge is pretty small as are all the local towns and traffic, parking, and distance have made Boston increasingly unattractive. But — that’s why archives are for! I love your old villages with cobblestone streets. I love them for photography, though I don’t love them for walking. They are the twisted ankle specials of life 😀

    My post will be up tomorrow morning!
