Gallery 29 {Holding}


Thank you Deb, for this week's prompt!

I meet my girlfriend every Monday for a day of painting,
writing, sewing, and planning our next project.
During a moment of sudden emotion and expression, 
how do you reach out and hold onto to it?
Just as your little one drifts into slumber?
The hand of an elder?
The furry pet curled up in your lap?
The warmth of your morning brew?
The vintage vase of fresh market flowers?

Go out and hold something.
Long enough to appreciate that special moment. 
Capture it and return here to share.

Add your photo to the flickr group after linking up here! Also, if you are on Instagram, tag your photos #52photosproject. *I have been without power since last week due to Hurricane Sandy - and I didn't get around to visiting all of your photos yet for last week's gallery {Celebrate}. I'll be catching up today. xo

Maybe I say this every week: I love your picture(s). And your topics never fail to be special and challenging and touching. Thank you. You were my first step into photography, and I can't thank you enough!

I love your photo, and the poetry under it. I so love this project and all the images that come forth each week, photographically and in words.
