Something Wonderful Every Week

Here is a new blog, a weekly photo journal for the year 2011:

We invite our friends, fellow travelers, and photographers to submit 1 photo to "Something Wonderful" every week by Sunday at noon. Photos will then be grouped according to location and published on our website by Monday or Tuesday of the following week. We ask that if you join this blog community, you consistently submit 1 photo EVERY WEEK for the year 2011.

An important caveat is that photos should be taken and submitted in "REAL TIME," which is to say that each photo you submit should be taken at some point during that same week. For instance, all photos submitted the second week of January should actually be taken within the second week of January 2011. This allows viewers to see what different people in different places in the world are doing at roughly the same time.

Any photo can be "wonderful" -- a photo of you, your friends, your cat, a good meal , a famous landscape, or something close to home. Even if it seems ordinary to you, someone across the world might see it and be amazed. Your everyday life, whether or not you know it, is wonderful.

You, the photographer, retain the copyright of any photo you take.

Please submit 1 photo by Sunday at noon, EVERY WEEK, to our e-mail address:

The e-mail should include your name, city, country, and a brief description of the item/people in the photo, as well as an attachment with the photo (JPEG preferred).


  1. Great idea! Just taking two seconds out of your day to say what you're grateful for or focus on "something wonderful" makes people SO much happier!

  2. Exactly, Kyle! I feel like I'm looking more at the beauty around me when I have this as something to focus on. If you ever want to play along, it would be great to see something wonderful in South America and your stunning photography work. :)
