Only one word comes mind when I look at this photo – hope. What do you see?

    Rejuvenation. Healing. Peace. Quiet strength. And hope – always, in anything alive and growing, I see hope…

      Thanks. It is one of the few times I was able visualize the shot and then look for the right angle among the chaos of branches to find it. I might have to try that again.

    I’m not very good at one word responses. What do I see? I see a photographer who has given a lot of thought to depth of field, who draws our attention to a simple plant, a plant that has lots of interesting details. I see a simplicity of composition, a limited color palette. I see embryonic possibility, new life that is starting, potential growth. I see fragile beauty. This is the kind of image that it is easy to see with your heart and emotions, and not just with your eyes.

      I kept returning to this photo and enjoying it but stuck on the one word hope to describe it. I wanted to write a post about it so I left it and kept coming back. Finally I just went with the word. If I had written a post it probably would have included all your observations. So I guess you wrote it for me! Perhaps that is why I was stuck, it is more of an image for the heart rather than just observation.

    Life at the end of a lonely road. I love how you can find beauty in the simpilest things


    • lylekrahn says:

      That’s a good one too – I hadn’t thot of the comparison to a road. I know there’s a lot more beauty to be found in the simple things, I just need to keep looking.

    I see that special shade of green that comes with spring. Great shot!

    I also see Greedo from Star Wars.
