A Photo a Week Challenge: Urban

Downtown Salt Lake City offers several urban locations. One of my favorites is Temple Square, home to the famous Salt Lake City Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was downtown today with some friends for lunch, and as we walked back to our car, this was my view of the temple.

I’m also including a few other photos I’ve taken of downtown Salt Lake City, Chicago, and New York, just because I know that the temple doesn’t have a typical urban look.


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. Exceptionally lovely collection. I love city shots, especially on rainy nights but we hardly get into the city anymore. It’s such a long drive from here into Boston. I still have Boston shots left, so I can use them here 🙂 Great subject and thank you!

      1. With the possible exception of the new fire station, everything in this town is a wooden structure with a picket fence, a very mini-mall, or a white, clapboard spired church. Town Hall is brick, built 1889 along with the library built in 1888. The 1880s were big years for Uxbridge.

        I suppose you could count Main Street as urban, but you’d have to be from an even smaller town or maybe a ranch deep in Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, or Montana. One day, I think I’ll have to do an All Uxbridge photo day to illustrate just how urban we really are. I’ll have to get shots of the new High School and Fire Station, too, just to let the world know that we are progressing — very slowly — into the new century and might even get there by 2050, give or take a decade or two.

  2. ha, what a coincidence 😉 – we visited SLC last month (I am still sorting my photos) – had some great time in Utah.

  4. Urban, brilliant subject … I love urban life. I love Chicago … and I enjoy NYC !! Never been to Salt Lake City, but it looks stunning. Have to start on my answer to this.
