Weekly Photo Challenge – Community

Streets Alive Fargo brings together a community of individuals wishing to improve their physical fitness with a day physical activities

Fargo, ND (and other places)

This week’s challenge is Community. From the challenge post, “This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, show us community, and interpret it any way you please!”

The image example in the post is actually not a community of people, or even of animals. It is a community of objects. You can view the image at the link at the end of this post if you are curious.

Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary has a simple definition of community.

com·mu·ni·ty noun, often attributive \kə-ˈmyü-nə-tē\

  1. a group of people who live in the same area (such as a city, town, or neighborhood)
  2. a group of people who have the same interests, religion, race, etc.
  3. a group of nations

The definition then expands to define communities as groups of individuals, not necessarily human. Looking through my collection of images, I found several possible examples of human and animal communities. I elected to concentrate on ad hoc communities, those that come together annually, monthly, weekly or whatever time frame they choose. These communities are subgroups, maybe of a city, county, state or nation. I submit for your constructive criticism, a gallery of ad hoc communities.

A community of classic car enthusiasts at Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale Auto Show and Auction

  5. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!

    P.S. I would have left you a LIKE on all the posts I read (I think I read eight, maybe nine) but LIKE buttons are not working for me on blogs with a URL that ends with wordpress.com……..:(
