A busy, traditional hutong
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American Eastern Time).
A tiny bar on a street not far from Qianmen in a district with lots of hostels.
Such bright colors. This girls is coming home from school.
Each week Cee challenges bloggers to share black and white photos based on a theme. This week she’s challenging us to share black and white photos of things with engines or motors. I dug up this photo of the vehicles used in parts of Beijing.

This month’s theme is friends or friendship so I’m sharing this painting a hutong neighborhood, where friends gather all the time. That’s a big reason I’m draw to the hutongs, so much conviviality.

So WordPress is ending this fun, community-building, delightful challenge. They haven’t given a reason why, which is disappointing. I loved getting a new theme to inspire me and to get a chance to see how others had responded. I connected with other bloggers and I’ll sorely missed that.
It makes sense if an individual’s life changes and they must end a weekly challenge, but WordPress is a viable, successful company. If they want to hire me to handle this, I’m game. It wouldn’t be pricey.
Perhaps an individual with loads of followers will fill the gap, but it’s a commitment. I’ll follow if someone does.
I’ll be in shock for quite a while. What a shame WP. You didn’t have to go this route.
I hope that this is like the “New Coke” fiasco and that they do resume this challenge. Again, I’d be happy to freelance as their new WPC Creator.
1. Each week, WordPress will 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 Wednesday 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 posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
