This is just an idea, so feel free to slap me down, but I was trying to think of a way we could appreciate a whole load of photos to the fullest without too much effort whilst getting a bit of personal insight into each others' daily lives.
So what about a Photo of the Day thread where we could post a photo of the day with any regularity we like, up to but not exceeding One a Day?
Along with that we could put a pithy little comment because much as I like photos, I also like to know a bit (but not too much!) about what was going on in the photographer's mind when they took them, and why they like the shot.
Maybe this isn't the proper place to suggest or host this idea, I don't know, but anyway, I'll try and post a photo here and see if anyone likes the idea. I've just joined by the way, and this site looks like a nice place to be around, so I'm looking forward to getting involved a bit.
So here's a slice of my daily grind, with a little commentary and I'd love to see your pictures and thoughts like this:
OK, i admit, it's not quite Paris, but it almost is, and might well be if plans for Greater Paris continue apace.
So it's Arcueil then, just to the south, and what you certainly don't expect to see is a fully-fledged flock of sheep, as it were, being nonchalantly driven down rue Marius Sidobre of a Saturday afternoon, replete with sheepdogs and shepherdess in tow.
It's all part of one of these 'Farm in the City' initiatives, where they scatter the tarmac with straw or tarpaulin and press gang a clutch of chickens or rabbits or ducks to pose for photos and get poked by hoards of snotty city kids.
Oh yeah, and you can buy overpriced cheese and wine and garlic because it's 'the real thing'. Excuse my cynicism- i quite enjoyed it really, and my one-year-old probably would have too, if he hadn't slept through the whole thing.
