Photo a Day: Lucky Number

See our daily themed photo and submit one of your own. Today's theme: Lucky Number.

Each day of the month we’re bringing you our submission of a themed Photo a Day challenge. Today, Oct. 23, the theme is Lucky Number.

Most people have a lucky number. It can be a special date, maybe a birthday or anniversary. Perhaps it's the number on the back of a childhood sports hero's jersey. Maybe it's just something a number that always seems to pop up in daily life. We never really got the point of Lucky Numbers, which is probably why we stick to playing colors at the roulette table and why we've never won the Powerball. But, for some, there are certain numbers that are just guaranteed to lead to good things.

For our Lucky Number themed picture we took a picture of the back of a fortune from a fortune cookie. If you're playing the lottery tonight, who knows, give it a shot. Oh yes, if you're wondering what the fortune is, it's "Don't ever give in to cynicism." We won't fortune cookie fortune, we won't.

Show us your Lucky Number.

Yesterday's theme was Homework. There were no submissions yesterday, but we did submit it rather late. Sorry about that! Tomorrow’s theme is Magazine. Check back in each day for our Photo of the Day and submit your own. Check out below for a description of the Photo a Day challenge and a list of October themes.

With the advent of media sharing applications like Instagram and the rapid rise in photo sharing across the internet through forums like Facebook, Reddit and even Patch, there have been movements to engender creativity in the digital photography community.

One such movement that has become popular is the now-ubiquitous Photo A Day challenge. While many sites across the internet offer their own interpretations and challenge lists, the goal is always the same, to capture a digital image each day that represents that day’s specific theme.

To participate, upload your photos directly to Red Bank-Shrewsbury Patch by clicking the "Upload Photos and Videos" button directly under the above picture, email us at edward.vanembden@patch.com, or Tweet us your pic at @redbankpatch. Though we plan on keeping to the schedule, feel free to upload your themed pics at your leisure.
