Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

I’ve missed the last two photo challenges, but in my defense, I’ve been trying to follow the rules. Or at least what I perceive to be the rules. And since the kind folks at The Daily Post pose their challenges on Friday, I am decidedly late to the party.

This week’s challenge was to make an image that says “renewal” to you – trying to avoid clichéd choices like birth and sunrises. I’ve chosen this shot. I think we usually get morose in the fall, focus on saying goodbye (I include myself here, too – I’m not name-calling). Even though this milkweed has lived to the end of its days, those fuzzy seeds will blow away and start anew in the spring.

And also a sunset. Because they’re pretty.

  1. Milkweed pods and their inner milky thistle and the sweet seeds….ahhhh….how I love them. We only can find certain patches of milkweed around here. It’s not like it’s all around, so I super appreciate it when it reveals itself. Yes, renewal. And sunsets, too. Happy Thanksgiving, Heather!

    • We seem to have milkweed dotted here and there. It’s not all over, but not hard to come by either. I always think it would make good pillow stuffing. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too :)

    • I like the thought that the night is undergoing renewal. I was only discounting the sunset because of the description on the challenge – I find sunrises and sunsets to be the ultimate sign of renewal, perhaps along with a fresh rain and birth.

Share your thoughts. I'd love to hear from you :)
