Mine. Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share? I get rather possessive about that first cup of coffee in the morning. It’s definitely mine and I want it all to myself. 

Share a picture that means MINE to you! 

(**sorry for the tardiness! We had it scheduled and it didn’t fire off. Shucks!)

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

    1. Wow, coming up with a new photo each week? That’s a tough requirement. One photo = 6 to 8 hours of work for me. Finding the subject, photographing, processing, uploading and writing a story. Although a good exercise, it might be too tough for some people to find that much time. It might significantly reduce the participation. And that would be no fun :(

      1. Hi Maurizio, I don’t want to confuse the terms – when I mentioned re-using “Archives” I was referring to published posts (posts with a date/timestamp prior to the challenge).

        You are definitely welcome to contribute a new post using a picture you took at at any time – no need to do a whole new photo shoot in response to the theme. We’ve only had one photo challenge where I asked you to photograph something the same day as the challenge :)

    2. Oh, phewww! Thank you for the clarification. I love these challenges and I would love to be able to come up with entirely new photos each week, but that would be so though!

      1. Totally understand – we want to encourage new posts & photos because then it’s a response to the challenge rather than re-utilizing archived posts.

      1. I’m trying to be more active – it’s actually easier for me when we post on a weekday (not before a weekend!) but I’ll be in the comments from now on!

  1. Sarah, I know this might be too much to ask but I finally put together my solitary one yesterday. I went to post it on your link for it and noticed comments were closed. Any way you can open them today so I can slip it in?
    I’ll know in the future to get it in sooner.
    Never hurts to ask.
    Thanks for considering.

  2. Well, the word “mine” seems to be part of my household with three little kids, being said, repeated, several times a day, and often times, more than once in the same sentence!
    But my impression for this week will relate to myself. ‘Mine’ is for me
    – sorry kids! :o
    A nice afternoon by myself, kids in school, decided to venture the local market in La Paz, and found a great stand, for the love of chocolate – Bolivian alfajores (almost sinful caramel sandwich cookies!), and chocolate-made shot glasses, to enjoy your favorite liquor, after a well-deserved coffee… and, the best part: all mine! :o
