A blog about books. Oh, and some other stuff too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Fresh. The definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing). Fresh is definitely this cantaloupe (“melone”) granita I enjoyed recently here in Italy. It cooled me down immensely (and it didn’t hurt that it was delicious, too!) 

In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means FRESH to you!

Apparently the elements decided to make my decisions about photo selections today – if you aren’t local to Ontario, then you might not be aware that we were hit with some fairly severe thunderstorms today, and we were without power for a long period. Parts of Toronto are still without power at the moment — stay cool, my friends, and be fresh! Originally my post was supposed to highlight some of the beautiful fresh produce that’s been appearing lately on local shelves …

However, after the rain had cleared and that glorious scent of rain filled the air, the ‘fresh and new’ aspect of the day was revealed.

The rain has washed the air and left it clean.

The oppressive heat wave has lifted, and the fields are happy to have a fresh start.

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.
