We don’t often think of habitual acts as photo-worthy occasions — after all, they happen all the time. But it’s because they happen frequently that they’re worth documenting; these moments and people are constants in your life and deserve to be commemorated.

Walking my dogs is not simply a daily task, it’s a several-times-a-day task. If I’m tired, it’s pouring rain, or both, it’s not always a task I look forward to, but it’s one that has to happen. Recently, we learned that one of our boys is ill and has limited time left with us, and suddenly, a walk in the rain was no longer such an annoyance. I snapped this photo on a recent (fair weather) stroll, the better to remember the simple joy of being outside with my guys.

superman curlThis week, show us something that’s a HABIT. It could be your daily walk to the bus stop, or your daily paper lying on the doorstep. Maybe it’s the guy behind the counter at the deli you always visit for lunch, the stuffed bunny your child must have at bedtime, or the view from your desk as you sit down to blog.

Capture a moment both constant and fleeting. We look forward to the glimpses into your everyday.

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.
