Photography as an art allows us to preserve so many important memories in our lives and the lives of our loved ones. This last Thanksgiving, my father passed away after a long illness. At the graveside, I was able to capture this personal moment between my mother and her bishop (LDS pastor). The bishop had given my parents much comfort during Dad’s illness, and his words at the funeral and graveside showed that he not only knew but cared deeply about my parents. We all felt comforted by his kindness and love.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE PHOTOS THAT SHOW OR GIVE COMFORT.
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.
