Illumination. Recently, I’ve been inspired by all types of lights, from the tiny white twinkles draped over trees during the holidays to the spectacle of fireworks in the night sky on New Year’s Eve. But sometimes I stumble upon stunning displays of light in the most unexpected places, like this grid of colorful bulbs underneath Southwark Bridge in London, England.

Lights are functional — everyday objects in our rooms and on our streets. Yet lights can be powerful symbols: signs of life, curiosity, and discovery. We’re interested in seeing what you come up with for illumination — particularly your creative interpretations and more abstract approaches.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

      1. I know whatchya mean. I just learned a couple of WP tricks by Googling for answers. It’s slow going, but I’m enjoying it very much. Headed your way right now.


      2. Thanks for the heads up. Even when I published my photo challenge entry, I wasn’t sure it went through on the Daily Post site. Makes me wonder…how much do I really know about the ins and outs of blogging? 😦


      3. Most definitely! I’ve added you to my blogroll, and will be checking in to see what you’re up to as often as I can.

        hugs…you’re pretty awesome yourself! 🙂
