A Photo a Week Challenge: Public Transportation

London's underground tube

Most major cities throughout the world have some form of public transportation. Here in Utah, we have buses, light rail trains, long-distance commuter trains, and taxis. At the University of Utah, you can also catch the U shuttle that travels around campus for free. This picture, however, is not from Utah. It’s from London’s massive, complex, and extremely comprehensive underground train system, also known as The Tube. Mind the gap.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.

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″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

Street life

I took this shot in London outside of Covent Gardens. I love the colorful buildings and window displays, especially on this very cold and rainy March day.

A Photo a Week Challenge: View

Twin PeaksWhen you look to the east from my office building, this is what you see. Well, this is what you see on a really good day. On a bad day, like today, all you see is hazy smog and an outline hint of mountains. The Wasatch Front of the Rockies Mountains is one of my favorite views. People I’ve talked to who are visiting Salt Lake City for the first time almost always mention how much bigger the mountains are in real life than they thought they would be. Pictures don’t do them justice.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OF YOUR VIEW.

Get creative and find some unique and interesting views in the world around. Blog an image of a favorite view and post a link to your find here.

A Word a Week Challenge: Square

London and it’s boroughs abound with squares. We stayed in a lovely bed & breakfast in Norfolk Square (easy walking distance from Paddington Station).

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Westminster Abby, London

I’m not sure if this is an unusual point of view, as thousands of people walk past the front of Westminster Abbey in London each month (possibly each day), but I don’t know how many take the time to look up.
