What is family? For some, family is defined by genetics. For others, it is simply those with whom you share a bond of love.

Or maybe it is nothing less than an expression of the universality of human experience as famously represented by the Family of Man photography exhibit.

Perhaps more to the point of this photo exercise, family is something that most of us care deeply about and that we find around us every day. Photographing our family not only gives us the chance to share something close to our heart, but affords us the opportunities often required to capture an image in a very special way.

This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo showing family.


The interpretations of “family” are as varied as families themselves. If you shy away from posting photos of yourself or loved ones online, then show us any kind of family — a gaggle of ducklings, a copse of trees, a row of identical buildings. This should make for an interesting challenge topic.

  1. Family was created by God for enjoyment, building families from babe to death. Many a family struggles with dysfunction; yet, the family continues to progress in the land of time…he created man and woman to birth many a generation into history we go…
