Journey across the United States to see what drives American’s out of bed each morning looking forward to the weekend. On Sunday is a photo book that adds new meaning to what so many desperately search for. A collaboration based solely on user-generated Creative Commons content from Flickr , On Sunday is representative of the population, because it is the population. Each photographer shows how Sunday means something a little different to him or her, creating a uniquely American perspective.

I have often wondered why the weekend was so great. Was it the fun to be had, or was school a bore? No matter my opinion, it is my own, far from characteristic of everyone else. Upon the realization that school years will not be forever On Sunday is the realization that life will be radically different upon graduation–routine will be replaced by a gigantic unknown.

This photo book shows that even though general similarities exist, we are all different. Through the photographs, one can learn the kind of work other Americans do, the things they enjoy, and most importantly what makes their weekend, in particular, Sunday, so special.

If there is one overarching lesson it is this: life will forever be filled with stretches of uncertainty, but what matters is what you do to give the rest meaning.
