The Latin phrase in memoriam means in memory of, especially in a epitaph. As today is the anniversary of the horrific bombings of the World Trade Towers in New York City, I wanted to honor the memory someone from my life who served his country. My father-in-law served in the United States Army. One of his grandsons is currently serving in the United States Marines (he is the pallbearer in uniform). I feel we sometimes take for granted the sacrifices of the people who keep us safe and risk everything to do so. This week’s challenge is for those people, around the world, who have given their all to protect their country, whatever country it may be.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT DEPICTS REMEMBERING SOMEONE WHO IS NO LONGER WITH US.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
