A Photo a Week Challenge: Raw Emotion

raw_emotion_nmp

Last week, we buried a very dear friend. He was far too young and leaves behind a grieving wife, four children, and a large extended family (including close friends) who will miss him terribly. At the graveside, I captured this moment of his mother and sister as they stood beside his casket. His mother said she had spent so many days crying that she felt she would never cry again. Even without tears, you can see the pain and grief in her eyes.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A NEW PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF EMOTIONS AT THEIR PUREST LEVEL.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. 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.
  2. 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″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. So sorry. It didn’t feel right to link my “emotional” photo here, as it depicts a completely different emotion and I didn’t want to feel that I mocked your post. But I am not ignoring you (or you blog).

  2. I generally don’t take pictures of people being deeply grieved. I don’t even have a camera. But I do have some joyful pictures. There are just times when I don’t fell like taking pictures … and when people are unhappy is usually one of them.
