After the great response to last week’s challenge, which showed the state of flux, in which we find ourselves, it seemed appropriate to take a tour of something a bit more permanent this week.
As I wandered about on the farm property where my wife was getting her sheep herding lesson with our youngest Cardigan, I came up with the thought for this week. The theme for this week is Trunk. Of course, there is more than one way to use this word, as it can be the trunk of a tree, the trunk of an elephant, a steamer trunk, the trunk of a car (boot in non-American English), a railroad trunk, etc.
Whichever trunk you choose to portray, the challenge is to make something rather special of it. I went in a very traditional direction in this image…
I was struck by the variety of colors, textures and lines, as the light played across these past masters of the woods, which make for a rather spectacular view.
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
I’m sure that the ideas will flow forward, and not be truncated! Have fun!
