Date issues

I'm getting the following error when I try to upload a photo:

File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/django/core/meta/fields.py",
line 327, in get_db_prep_save
value = value.strftime('%Y-%m-%d')

AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'strftime'

Here's my model:

from django.core import meta

class Weblog(meta.Model):
subject = meta.CharField(maxlength=200)
date_created = meta.DateTimeField('date created', auto_now_add=True)
last_updated = meta.DateTimeField('last updated', auto_now=True)
log_text = meta.TextField()
class META:
admin = meta.Admin(
def __repr__(self):
return self.subject

class Photocategory(meta.Model):
category = meta.CharField(maxlength=255)
class META:
admin = meta.Admin(
def __repr__(self):
return self.category

class Photo(meta.Model):
weblog = meta.ForeignKey(Weblog, null=True)
category = meta.ForeignKey(Photocategory, null=True)
photo =
date_uploaded = meta.DateField('date uploaded', auto_now_add=True)
photo_date = meta.DateField('photo date')
photo_description = meta.TextField()
class META:
admin = meta.Admin(
def __repr__(self):
return self.photo_description

I think what I'm seeing is a problem with converting something to a
date? Is this correct?

Thanks, Tom
