Character Photo Mini-Challenge — 24-Hour Read-a-Thon

Posted October 22, 2011 by in Read-a-thons / 3 Comments

This mini-challenge was posted by At Home With Books earlier this morning. The challenge is to take a photo of something that represents a character in one of the books I am reading for the read-a-thon.

I have chosen to take a picture that represents Josie in A Taste of Salt, written by Martha Southgate.

Here is a passage from the book that describes something about Josie and why I chose this picture for the mini-challenge:

When she was a little girl, she was always fascinated by the water. I used to watch her out in the backyard. She doesn’t know that I ever looked at her that closely. But I did, sometimes. She could turn on the hose and watch that water run out of it for hours on end. Or when I had to water the lawn, she always wanted to help me: to hold the hose or be a part of it somehow. Her brown legs all covered with sparkling drops of water, such a beautiful child.

    Hold your head high and reach the top”


  • Great choice of photo for the mini challenge! Thanks for participating!
