Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art

Jonathan Swift is credited with saying (among many other things:)) that “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” If that is true, I surely have it! – vision, that is. I started my last post with a cover page for my forthcoming book. But this week’s theme for the WordPress Photo Challenge is — what do you know! — “Cover Art.”  Since I’ve already posted my cover art, this time, I’ll post some of the pictures that will appear in my book.

In any case, here’s my new entry for our new photo challenge:New cover small

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Book cover smallDear Friends, 

My dream of publishing my first book – my memoir — is about to come true!  I spent five years writing it, and I spent another year suffering through twenty or so rejections (and even more instances of dead silence) from literary agents and publishing houses.  Finally, after many emotional ups and downs, I decided to publish my book on my own (not a quick and easy project either :-)).  So, in a matter of weeks, The Education of a Traitor will be available from Amazon—first in a Kindle edition and later in print.  How do I feel about this?  I’m scared and excited. After all, it’s my baby that I’m releasing into the world! I hope it will find readers.

And now, Dreamy:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

For the last three days, our town hosted a Roots and Blues music festival. We went on Saturday. The concert started at sunset and continued well into the night. Taking pictures with long lenses was prohibited, so I had to use my 50mm prime lens. Also, I couldn’t get very close. Oh, well :(

Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

Shoes on the Danube River

_MG_3780

As tourists take a leisurely stroll along the Danube River in Budapest, they come upon sixty pairs of bronze shoes set into the concrete embankment at the edge of the water.  This is a memorial to the Hungarian Jews who were shot there in the winter of 1944-1945 by members of the Hungarian Fascist Arrow Cross Party.

Before they were murdered, the Jews — men, women, and children — were ordered to take off their shoes, which could be used or sold on the black market. Then the victims were shot, and their bodies were dumped into the Danube.

Sometimes the militiamen tied several Jews together, then shot one of them so that the dead body would pull the living adults and children into the river.  If any of them survived the fall, the militiamen used them for target practice.  This didn’t happen often, though.   Most of the Jews – especially the children — died quickly in the freezing water.  Oh, humanity …
