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?

My little ones always said, "Hold you me!"

Very sweet picture of you two in the shadow. Love that!

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, 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 played as well! Have a great weekend!

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!

Oh my goodness! That "ground" picture was incredible! So amazing!

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.
