Single Bloom

Early last April, I spent a long weekend in Boston wandering the Freedom Trail and eating clam chowder (although not at the same time). One morning, as I was strolling through the Public Gardens in Boston Common, I stopped in front of this remarkable tulip. Not only was it the lone red specimen in a planting full of yellow flowers, but it was the only open bloom in a sea of still-sprouting buds. It was so unexpected that I had to immortalize it in photo; to me, it told a story of not being afraid to be unique, to stand out, to embrace difference.

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says UNIQUE to you.

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 (a new post!) 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. You can also link to this post to create a pingback here and to encourage more people to participate.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

  1. Sara,
    The post I worked on all week to meet the Photo Challenge guidelines unfortunately did not show up in the reader. This has happened before and it was due to categories and tags numbering over 15. I had a total of 7 categories and tags. It was so disappointed and am not sure what happened.Can you direct me as to how to get help with this? My only option last time was to re-post but I’m hesitant as the same thing may happen.
    Thanks for any help with this! Again, I promise to meet all the guidelines from here on out! 🙂

      1. Michele, (sorry I called you Sara–I’m so used to her.) I don’t know what happened but it showed up in the reader several hours later. It’s there now! Thanks for anything you did!
