Photo a Day: In your Town Photo a Day: In your Town

Each day of the month we’re bringing you our submission of a themed Photo a Day challenge. Today, Oct. 25, the theme is In Your Town.

In Your Town. Simple enough, right? There's rarely a day that goes by for us that doesn't involve taking pictures in our town. Pictures of people, pictures of stores, pictures of Halloween decorations. All of it is in our town, of course. So for our interpretation of today's theme we hit Broad Street and snapped some pictures. There's something cathartic about going out there on any random day and just snapping pictures with no specific purpose. It's kind of liberating, like say nailing an Ollie on a skateboard.

Nice transition, huh?

Anyway, our photo for today is a picture of Red Bank resident Nigel Mitchell performing a trick on the sidewalk in front of St. James Church.

Show us your interpretation of In Your Town.

Yesterday's theme was Magazine. Thanks to user Jessica Lotito for posting her interpretation of the theme. Tomorrow’s theme is On the Road. Check back in each day for our Photo of the Day and submit your own. Check out below for a description of the Photo a Day challenge and a list of October themes.

With the advent of media sharing applications like  Instagram and the rapid rise in photo sharing across the internet through forums like  Facebook, Reddit and even Patch, there have been movements to engender creativity in the digital photography community.

One such movement that has become popular is the now-ubiquitous Photo A Day challenge. While many sites across the internet offer their own interpretations and challenge lists, the goal is always the same, to capture a digital image each day that represents that day’s specific theme.

To participate, upload your photos directly to Red Bank-Shrewsbury Patch by clicking the "Upload Photos and Videos" button directly under the above picture, email us at edward.vanembden@patch.com, or Tweet us your pic at @redbankpatch. Though we plan on keeping to the schedule, feel free to upload your themed pics at your leisure.
