I'm trying to work up a challenge description that makes clear what we're talking about without being too limiting. How does the following sound?

Remembering

We've all lost someone close to us, and we all have our ways of remembering. Often physical objects, certain places, specific songs, etc become talismans that bring our memories to the surface. Try to show us this in a photograph.


Sounds great to me, Bear.


Thanks Bear, I think that what I was trying to say that it is the Emotional Trigger you get.also the title of your photograph be the name of the person you are honouring ? thanks again

My BIL was a great gardener so my memories of him are in that area !!


My condolences to you and your family, Nick and enjoy the memories. They last a long time.

Each spring I notice how some plant's new growth will evoke a memory of a family member or friend, especially if the plant began its life in my garden as a result of a cutting from their garden, or conversely if I had previously divided that plant to share with friends.

I'm not positive, but I think this one was published by his publishers, posthumously.

That's not entirely clear to me from the description. Tell us in a little more detail what exactly you're envisioning, and I can help with the shorter description. Also, would "Remembrance" work better as a title?

Had one 6 years ago ...

Remembrance

Like the idea though.

That was specifically for Service men and women.

Oh, yep ... it was. :-\

oh artie bartie, you are such a trouble. you simply have to learn to read everything the experts so boringly and unbrilliantly say. otherwise...

Well heck, Artemus, I didn't INTEND it as a description. I just thought it was an interesting aside... :-)

I know - I was just razzin ya. It probably is interesting. I'll make a mental note to come back and read it sometime. :)

Put a post-it on the screen, d00d. It's two whole paragraphs, sheesh :-)

I know, right? Maybe if it was two half paragraphs or just one whole paragraph or it was just pictures...

A bit long for a Challenge description, let alone a title. ;-)

FWIW, I'm good with Remembrance. It seems to fit the concept best, IMO. To my understanding, it's not limited to an object, nor something that necessarily belonged to the deceased - just something that reminds you of them. But it's 21.gif kiwinick's suggestion, so his call, I would think.

Evoke - show us something that Evokes a special memory of someone.

Originally posted by Mary C. Lamia:

Most emotional memories are the result of cued recall. A certain date may trigger an emotional memory such as in the anniversary of a loss. But also anything that is connected to your senses may be a cue that can ignite emotional recall. While walking past the perfume counter of a department store you may remember someone who smelled delicious, or, on the other hand, a person whose over-use of scented products was repugnant to you. A certain place may evoke a memory of being there in the past and the pleasant or unpleasant emotions attached to that experience. Your visceral response to a particular song may be a reminder of the emotion you felt toward someone with whom it is associated.

Holding onto certain possessions may be a way to activate the recall of emotion. Yet it is not simply emotional memory that is triggered by an object but also the connection you had with the person who is represented by it. For example, I happened to open a box that had been stored away for many years and found something that had belonged to my mother. Along with elation, momentary sadness was activated in me, as though I had somehow connected with her again. In a study of cherished objects as memorabilia, researchers found that most of the identified cherished objects were cherished for reasons other than their value as inducers of reminiscence and as specifically as reconstructive symbols (Sherman, 1991).

I don't know of any word specifically for the dead, but there is "keepsake"
05/19/2017 01:24:47 PM · #23
understand OP's stipulation of 'not a portrait' but i could envision blending an old photograph of the remembered person in the mix if it were extended editing.

I like the idea. I do think it might help to clarify or specify the topic. If simply to avoid being a free study.
e.g. "Use photography to share a memory of someone that has passed. Help the viewer know more about that special someone".
Maybe add whether animals AND people are acceptable subjects.

there's memento mori but that's a bit macabre. perhaps just memento.
