A Day in My Life. Another multi-photo challenge! Make sure you include picture captions to explain to people what they’re seeing, and experiment with the tiled galleries I love so much. 

What does your day look like? Here’s your chance to share with everyone a day in your life! Here are some suggestions to get started: snap a picture once an hour and share what your day was like, walk us through a typical day for you, or even just what happened today!

Pick the best pictures which give your readers a sense of a day in your life and share them!

Here’s what a day in my life looks like – most of these are actually from last Friday when I tried to take one picture an hour and I was preparing for this post, and I added a few more typical scenes from a day in my life.

{A Day in My Life Gallery: I head outside to get some fresh air. It’s a clear day; An espresso in the morning with a side of chocolate egg (Hey! Easter’s coming up); I resist buying all of the other brightly wrapped chocolate eggs. Resist!; Work, work, work in the morning. I really do love it; After more work, I head to the gym. Trams are a big part of Milan, and I cross tram tracks every day; Health is important to me, so I make time to stay fit. Like my WP water bottle?; I love getting mail, and sometimes that requires going to pick up a package. I had no idea what was in this one; Surprise tea shipment from an awesome colleague! Yeah; I drink herbal tea while working at home – I tried one of the new flavors I just got in the mail; In the evening I usually want to get outside before the sun disappears and enjoy more fresh air; If I’m lucky, I’ll have an aperitivo, a pre-dinner drink & snack, with friends; }

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  1. Loved your tiled gallery. I think I did the Day in my Life in NYC this week but will go at it again in a different city today! Thanks for the inspiration.


  2. Sara, you did it again with a great idea for these weekly challenges! I Like your post: you have a dream job!


  3. 1. The Place where I go for Morning walk is having greenary to the extent that sometimes it mesmerizes and I feel as if I am in a complete different world.
    2. Fire crackers are part of Indian life-style; Festivals, Marriages, Functions and almost all things have included fire crackers as a integral part even in Global warming situation.
    3. Birds, Sqirrel, Trees, Plants, Sunset, Sunrise, and Flowers are also integral part of my life since I go for morning and evening walk.
    4. Building od Assembly having statue of Gandhiji in front is the place nearby the garden I visit daily for my evening walk.
    5. From college days, greeting cards are essential part of my daily life. Pick the occasion I will use my customized greeting cards and gifts to show my affection towards my loved ones.
    6. I love to walk on different areas and direction and hence multiple places are covered.
    7. My passion for photography is a routine for me and it is an integral part of my life hence some photographs are selected which I love the most.

    Weekly Photo Challenge: A Day in My Life


  4. This is an amazing post! Maybe it’s because I use Twenty Ten, but I managed to successfully do this on my self-hosted site (without JetPack!) I’m very excited. (Apologies for the double-posting in Pingbacks — I accidentally published prematurely before settling on a header.)


  5. “A day in my life by Argo the rescued pup”. The cage opened. Two small, soft human hands scooped me up and held me up with a laugh that sounded like clinking small bottles. He smelled of peanut butter jelly, milk skin and baby soap and never let go, tickling my neck and ears. A breath of fresh air, and two bigger human hands held me up in the light; big round brown eyes looked up my ears, paws, coat, tummy… don’t bring me back in that old place where it was cramped, crowded, hot, packed. Dry, dying.The big human hands carried me away and I could hear more human voices. The small human hands that smelled of peanut butter took me again and cradled me in the crook of his arm. The big human held his hand and they walked. We all went inside a rumbling engine machine and rolled out. Endlessly. When we finally stopped, i opened my eyes to a stone path, grass, sunshine-colored walls that smelled of pine wood.
    He rested me in his lap and somewhere I could smell human food. i licked some milky water and tasty, crackling cereals. We went for a walk, then a run, it’s the first day of the rest of my life with the little human who smelled of peanut butter jelly, my first outdoor trot, and the rustle of leaves and falling flowers followed us everywhere.

  7. Sara – I don’t know how I came to stumble onto your weekly photo challenge blog but I was rapped by the photos you posted as they form a fascinating visual narrative on their own. I am always intrigued by photos of people’s hands- you snuck of couple of ones in your collection. I am new to this blogging medium and so I haven’t a clue what the purpose of blogging is . Nevertheless I love your theme ” a day in my life ” gallery of related events. All the best – James


    1. Thanks James! You should open your own blog at and join in on the fun! We do a weekly photo challenge every week and the rest of the week the editors post blogging prompts, and discuss blogging & writing!

  8. Hello to all,
    These are really wonderful picks and tips. I have also a big collection of new born baby of my own. These are saved in my iPad photo album-photobook app in an album form. I tagged all the photos with GPS data. All the photos are immemorial for me and I know this a part of all the parents life.

    Thanks for tips and beautiful thoughts.


    1. @Queenie – Make sure you post the link to the exact blog post URL so people can find it later, and as your new content shows up on the front page of your site!


  9. What a wonderful challenge. Not unlike the TED talk I saw of a man who filmed seconds of each day to make a film of his life.
    Am going to try this photographic A Day in My Life – was thinking about it today and snapped some shots but not the day … in the next week or so I aim to endeavour to have a go!
