Round Robin Challenge: Gimme, Gimme

And now, two years and a bit later, it's my turn again to choose a Challenge topic. You know me. I'm Karen of Outpost Mâvarin.

We've had lots of great topics since we started these Challenges. Cycling through all the active Robins in order, we've been continually impressed with all your wonderful themes and ideas. Now we're back up to the top of the list, and it's my turn, one last time before we open each Challenge up for everyone's great ideas, regardless of when each person started participating. You'd think I'd be chomping at the bit, dying to tell you about some great topic I've been sitting on for years. But after all the wonderful, uplifting topics we've already done, I find my head is empty of wonderful, uplifting Challenge ideas. Instead I keep coming back to an idea that's fun and silly and not uplifting at all.
This challenge is now closed. Thank you for playing!

The topic for Wednesday, July 25th, 2007 is

"Gimme, Gimme!"

C'mon, admit it. We all get greedy sometimes, and we all want something. Maybe we indulge ourselves, and buy that latte, ice cream cone, book or BMW, and maybe we don't. But it doesn't stop us wanting.

So show us what you want. It can be something huge and expensive, or a little thing you might buy on a whim; a habit you're trying to break, or the goal for which you're breaking that habit. Concrete or abstract, your own want or something your kids or your cats keep begging for, it's all good. If you can capture it in a camera lens, go for it!

And now for the quick reminder on how it works:

1. RSVP in the comments to this entry. It should include your name (or online handle), blog name and URL, thus:

Will play for food!
Scaredy Dog Blog

2. Post your entry no sooner than the Challenge date, Wednesday July 25th. You can post up to six days late if you need to, but you'll probably have fewer visitors after Wednesday. Do NOT post before the 25th!

3. Include a link back to this blog. Links to other Robins are appreciated by not mandatory. We'll post the linking list late Tuesday night.

4. Have fun!

As I mentioned above, we're changing the way topics are chosen, starting a few Challenges from now. We already have a short list of topics people have suggested that haven't been used yet, and now we're inviting you to add to that list. Email us your topic ideas! You can send us one idea or a dozen, or any number in between, any time you like. Every two weeks we'll choose a topic, and give full credit to the person who submitted it. We're looking for new, different ideas, so please see the sidebar for the list of topics we've already done. Got it? Good! Send your topics to

* Karen: mavarin[at]
* Carly: ondinemonet[at]
* Steven: steven.emmett[at]

To keep topics a surprise until the announcement date, we will accept ideas only by email. Do not make suggestions in the comments!

That's it, folks! Start wowing us with your topic ideas, and go be photographers!

with Carly and Steven
