In hindsight it seems trying to pick one person’s happiest moment over another is practically an impossible task.

Weddings, babies, impersonating a guitarist at the edge of the pool: who’s to say one happy photo - one happy moment - is better than another? They were all happy in their own way.

In the end we chose a photo, a moment everyone can identify with: Sally S. Howard of Summerville seeing her son for the first time after he was injured by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Check Saturday’s People section in The Post and Courier to read more about why that photo was selected.

Your next assignment: Your summer vacation.

The rules: Send your very best summer vacation photo to by noon Tuesday.

Include your name, town and where the photo was taken.

If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper it must be at least 1,500 pixels and not have a commercial watermark.

Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.
