SPF #7: Inspired by an Auschwitz Survivor


Brought to you by Kristine.

This weeks assignment, inspired by the story of an Auschwitz Survivor, was to take a picture of:

  • Your Bag
  • Your Ground
  • Something You are Powerless To
So I took a picture of:


My Bag -

My laptop case carries all my esentials for a day.


My Ground -

There are two ways this shot shows my ground.
My little one's hand in mine
The land I farm

Something I am Powerless To -

When one of my Little Ones says "Hold You!" (pronounced as one word - 'hOl-jü ) with arms upraised. Especially when they are sick, or sad, or hurt. And let them fall asleep... well, I'm not going anywhere.



Did you Play?

Oh, I should have taken a picture of my fiance with our cat on his chest. He's powerless against her feminine wiles... he passes out in seconds.

Your ground picture is beautiful.

I played at The Ramble Room

I love the last two pics. Especially that second one. Very cute. But, ummmm...at first? With the brim of your hat sticking out? I thought it looked like the shadow of Shrek. LOL Hmm...sorry.

Happy SPF! I played too.

When my kids were little they used to say "hold you" - the teenage daughter is over it but the little man child still likes to snuggle.

Great SPF - I played too

I love that shadow shot.

But what really comes to mind is: man with a shaved head, red beard AND a cowboy hat? You rock! (just like my dh)

Great perspective on that second shot! I am pretty much powerless to my son, so I know how you feel! Great pics!

I love the shadow picture. It reminded me of when I was little and my dad would wear his cowboy hat. Great memories.

Great SPF!

Mine had the catch phrase: "Hol'meMama" as all one word. :)

Claudia will say "Pick you up". I'm guessing it means the same thing.
