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