No me tenet vincula, no me tenet clavis.

Frissell had a knack for taking photos of women underwater. In 1947 she took another photo at Weeki Wachee Spring, which we posted as Lady in the Water.

Mrs. Mary Couchman, a 24-year-old warden of a small Kentish Village, shields three little children, among them her son, as bombs fall during an air attack on October 18, 1940. The three children were playing in the street when the siren suddenly sounded. Bombs began to fall as she ran to them and gathered the three in her arms, protecting them with her body. Complimented on her bravery, she said, “Oh, it was nothing. Someone had look after the children.”
