This is what Wiki says.

A neighbourhood or neighborhood (see spelling differences) is a geographically localised community located within a larger city, town or suburb.

I say you can't leave your front porch. So you would have to wait for the most opportune moment before releasing the shutter.

Well that might be a little excessive. Just something distinctly local to you.

Sing with me . . . .

These are the people in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood, in you neigh----bor----hood!
Yes, these are people in your neighborhood.
They're the people that you meet
When you're walking down the street,
They're the peeeeple that you meeeeeeeet eaaaaaaaaaach daaayyyyyyyyy!


<closet Sesame St. fan, yes>

As far as front porch goes, remember we have some really rural dwellers here. This is from my front porch this past winter (and I'm not as rural as some.

Overall, I like the idea. We've done something similar in the past, but I don't remember the exact name of the challenge -- Where you Live, or something like that.

Here it is!

I too live in a pretty rural area, about 60 miles south of Albuquerque. The view from our front porch isn't quite so nice as Karma's, but we have nice skies!

The challenge might be harder for some people, yes. But I've taken alot of nice photos in my neighborhood. I don't have a profile anymore but every picture in it used to be within a few blocks of my home with the exception of my high contrast challenge entry which was taken downtown Edmonton.

Anyone will be able to do it, I don't think theres a lack of artistic flair on DP.

Edited to say:

Oh yeah.. And I live in a very urban area. I'm 5 minutes away from one of the busiest (and technically the largest) malls in the world.
