bird in the rebar

How does the old saying go: a bird in the hand is worth two in the pile of rebar? I think that’s right.

My neighborhood is filled with rubble “up and coming,” and some construction materials have recently moved into an empty lot across the street from my building. I was fascinated by the lines and shapes created by these stacks of rebar — more so when I saw birds hopping between the bars, using it as their personal jungle gym. I snapped this shot of the bars and birds, offset by the bright green grass, through a chain-link fence.

This week, share what you see on the inside. It could be something literally inside, like these birds in the rebar or the inside of your home or favorite hideaway. If you’d like, go in a personal direction — share a photo of your best friend laughing, showing how she feels on the inside, or an arresting shot of your son’s blue eyes (windows to the soul, dontcha know). This is also a great opportunity to put what you learned in Jeff Sinon’s guest post on composition into practice.

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. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter — we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
