Theme Day for September 1: Sister Cities

It's Theme Day for the Daily Photo community again. The theme for September is Sisters Cities.

Singapore does not have any sisters city. But according to this press release by the San Franciso Mayor's Office, these cities once signed a pact for a Digital Sisters Cities initiative :
San Franciso (USA), Toronto (Canada), Guadalajara (Mexico), Ireland, Dusseldorf (Germany), Skopje (Macedonia), Sofia (Bulgaria), Chennai (India), Singapore and Osaka (Japan).

I wonder if there are fellow DPs living in these cities? Oh yes there is! 13 of us!

San Francisco (CA), USA by PFranson * San Francisco (CA), USA by Burd Zel Krai * San Francisco (CA), USA by Ursel * San Francisco (CA), USA by Louis la Vache * San Francisco (CA), USA by meles meles * San Francisco (CA), USA by Manuel

Singapore, Singapore by Keropokman * Singapore, Singapore by Zannnie, Ming & Madscientist

Toronto, Canada by Steve * Toronto, Canada by Elaine

Sofia, Bulgaria by Antonia

Chennai, India by Shantaram * Chennai, India by Ram N

But how do I request them to take a photo for me? Well, use the City Daily Photo portal of course! The photos thumbnails are listed as they post photo daily.

Oh, that's interesting, didn't know that Chennai is 'related' to Singapore - couldn't find any mention of that... so tell me, is there a photo you want from here? Will send you one anyway :)

Cheers,
Shantaram

Very creative way to incorporate your sister city images, from the potrtal. Well done.

Oh! That's incredible! I wish I knew how to code that. In any case, Digital Sister Cities are probably the wave of the future, and this is perfectly significant of that.
