Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

I was wondering what happened to the Weekly Photo Challenge last friday: for many of us bloggers it’s the highlight of the week, where we get to see a lot of interesting photos and interpretations of the theme from fellow bloggers. As a social online event the WPC is something that connects bloggers and can often make you discover new blogs that you might wouldn’t have discovered otherwise. It turned out that the new WPC-post was scheduled by Sara Rosso and that it didn’t fire off as planned because of some technical glitch. Finally it’s here and the theme this week is “Mine”.

“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!” – Sara Rosso, WordPress

Here’s a photo that represents “Mine”:

My guitar: a semi acoustic Morgan.

What is your thoughts about this photo and/or about the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge?
I would love to hear your opinion.

Edit: Some of you have heard this before, but here’s a clip of me playing guitar with my friend. I composed the tune while my friend Sjur made the rhythm. It’s called “A Tune For Mom”.

    • Thanks, I liked to read about your glasses because I can relate to it. I used to have glasses, but did lazer surgery: for several weeks after I kept looking for my glasses when I woke up in the morning 😀

      • So what now – people with glasses ‘always’ forget them one or another place – what do you forget now..? ‘big smile’

        I like the Weekly Photo Challenge for the same reason as you – enjoy really to see other bloggers post on the themes – WHEN they remember the challenge from WP… ‘hahaha’

  1. Love the point of view of your guitar. I agree, the WPC is a great way to see other’s interpretations of the challenge, some wonderful photography to be found every week.

    • Thanks Angeline. It’s also a great way to discover new blogs. The only problem is that I’ve found so many blogs now that it’s impossible to keep up with them all!
      (probabably a lot of bloggers feel the same way)

  2. This is the first time I see a macro of guitar strings … I like seeing fresh views.. I am glad you experimented… you guitar was worth the effort 🙂

  3. Mine? Why couldn’t they pick something simple like ‘cars’? I’m going to have to think this week.

  4. Your song accompanies the photo perfectly, very intimate. The photo of your guitar emits the essence of acoustic, The soft hum of light dancing just beyond focus. I can almost feel the strings vibrate and smell the wood.

  5. Love the feel of the photo! And “A tune for Mom” is so sweet and melodic. You’re so talented. If I ever learn a new instrument, it’d definitely be the guitar. But we’ll see! I’m looking to pick up piano again, but it’s much less portable. haha

    • If I ever learn a new instrument it’ll definitely be piano! Actually we just talked about it a few days ago that it would have been cool to have a piano, but as I already told you in your post about stand mixers: we can’t even fit a stand mixer into our apartment!

  9. WPC is a brilliant way for us all to connect and discover each other – considering that most of the time I work in a relative vacuum, since starting my blog I have gotten a great deal of positive, constructive feedback (albeit on random, non-work related subjects). Not only is this gratifying but it acts as encouragement to keep on keeping on – this is probably the case with alot of others out there as well. I love the abstract quality of your guitar photo for this challenge (and how your piece resonates with the challenge); music really is a personal thing but its intangible qualities are those that reach out and affect others. Well done.

  17. I missed this lovely portrait of your guitar! The photo reveals just how you think of her! The perspective is intuitive and very personal. I like this very much.
    I am unable to load your Guest portrait for some reason. I got the email and clicked on the link. Says it does not exist???

    • Thanks George. I’m glad you like the perspective I chose for this photo.

      I figured Mr Guest wouldn’t mind me making a photoshopped version of one of his portraits, but he did mind and asked me to delete it. His photo – his rules, so the photo is gone now.

  19. Beautiful photo and music. At first glance, I thought the photo was an abstract painting. Then I took a closer look and saw the guitar. By the way, my husband also plays the guitar. 🙂

    • Thanks, I’m glad you like the photo and the music, and it’s also good to hear that your husband plays guitar: it’s always nice with some live music in the home.
