Photo of the year 2010 – a City Daily Photo theme day

A boy and his vuvuzela

Even though we habitually miss it, each month the City Daily Photo members have a theme day on which they publish photos representing a particular theme.

As is traditional on 1 January, today's theme is "Photo of the year 2010"; most CDP bloggers take this annual opportunity to post what they or their readers believe to be their best or most beautiful photo of the preceding year. We've decided to interpret the theme a little differently and post not the best photo of the year, but rather a photo that we feel portrays the greatest highlight of our city's 2010 calendar: the Football World Cup that was held in South Africa during June and July.

Visit our June and July archives to see more daily photos taken around the time of the World Cup.

    Thank you Caroline. :) (And, Best wishes for your 2011 as well!)

    Ha ha – silly us Julie. To be honest, we never linked the celebration in the photo to New Years until you mentioned it. :) Happy new year to you also!

    Thank you Jack. And thanks for the compliment on the World Cup also – it was such an exciting time for South Africa. On the vuvuzelas – I guess you either love ’em or hate ’em. I hate them on the tele, but in life they’re pretty atmospheric. The weird thing is that this year was the first time that people in our neighbourhood started blowing vuvuzelas at midnight on new year’s eve. It seems that the black football tradition has caught on in our mostly-white neighbourhood!
