Here's your challenge for today, Oct. 2: "Makes Me Smile"
I'm sure you've seen people sharing a Photo a Day on various social media, and we love our community gallery here with your great pictures of life around the Sammamish and Issaquah area.
It got me thinking, what fall portrait would our collective lens paint here? There's so much beauty, and great community and goings on all through the month, I'd love to see a daily snapshot of Sammamish and Issaquah through your camera (or smartphone) lens. Upload your photo, and if you like, say a few words about it in the caption - or let it speak for itself. I'll do my best to add one each day, though I'll be taking mine the day before each theme to include in the article when it's posted. Add one everyday, or just on the days that most inspire you!
So I'll post a new article with the day's theme at 6 a.m. daily and feature it on the home page until midnight.
Whether you follow the rules strictly by taking a new picture on the theme every day or sharing one that you took before that uniquely expresses the theme of the day is up to you. To see them all, go to the October Sammamish-Issaquah Photo Challenge topic page on the news menu.
