I realized that I haven’t taken many non-travel photos lately, so I stepped out my front door and took this picture this morning.
I really like my neighborhood. We have great neighbors, the area is relatively quiet, and there is a wonderful park with a walking trail at the end of our street. The elementary school is just behind the church on the corner, and kids are usually out playing after school when the weather is good. During the holidays, people deliver neighbor Christmas gifts, and the youth take one evening a couple of weeks before Christmas to deliver Christmas cards for anyone (you do have to address your own cards) to anyone in the neighborhood. People out walking or driving wave to each other, and regardless of your religious status (or lack thereof), everyone is welcome to come to the big neighborhood block party every September at the local LDS Stake Center where the congregations (known as wards) in the Stake (six to eight LDS wards in an area) take turns providing the barbecue meal. It’s best when the Tongan ward is in charge and we get a luau!
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- 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.
- 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.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Your neighbourhood sounds like a really good place to live, Nancy!
We like it a lot, as you can tell. 🙂
Wow…that sounds like an awesome place!
You have a great community.
Yes, we do. 🙂
A neighborhood road a couple of weeks ago. We’ve had nearly a foot of snow since the photo was taken:
Lovely and peaceful image. What a start of a day.
Reblogged this on All About Writing and more.
Here is my entry for this week.
Lovely photos, Cee!
A lovely post. I have always found it difficult to get to know our neighbors. Perhaps because they move out, or have odd work hours. Or we are just too consumed with ourselves 😦 Your neighborhood looks and sounds like a wonderful place to live. 🙂
We have lived here for 11 years, and we love it. 🙂
Thanks for the prompt, which allowed me to celebrate what I love so much about living where I do: Redwood City, California and its sister-cities.
Nice prompt to explore the world closer to home!
I live not too far from an ABMC cemetery, I wrote this post about a project I was doing there:https://wp.me/p2owKx-1jv Your neighbourhood sounds lovely.
