The word prompt for the 21st Edition of Smile For The Camera is "Give Their Face A Place." March is Women's History month and you are asked to picture women back into history. The unknown, known and unsung women who are often the foundation of our family history. Give their face a place. The interpretation is yours. Admission is free with every photograph!
Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours!
It's always a difficult task to choose just one woman to honor during "Women's History Month". Instead of tossing a coin this year, I decided to do something different. My submission is a slide show I created honoring my female ancestors.
These are my ancestors, they would be the mothers who would nurture the generations that followed them. I give them my praise, my respect and my adoration.
You may enjoy this short slide show right here on "The Ties That Bind" or by going to my Vimeo account at: http://vimeo.com/10073221
If you choose to watch the video on my blog please take a moment to close my playlist by clicking on the "double bars" before starting the video, so that you can enjoy the music and narration in the video. You can also view it in "full screen mode" by clicking on the little star like figure in the lower right hand corner of the Vimeo screen. It is much more enjoyable in full screen - once the video ends hit your "esc" key to return.
Hope you enjoy it!
