Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 112

Filled with promise!

Welcome to the 112th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Thank you for a wonderful week of posts!

This week’s posts are truly special, as many of them touched me in their approach to the theme of Promise, and I expect that many of you will feel the same way about them.  It is truly amazing how sometimes we are lucky enough to capture a moment that can sadden us deeply, but ultimately lift us up with the promise of what lies ahead.  Many of you shared very personal visions of the theme and I very much appreciate each of your posts.

Please enjoy these posts and share your thoughts on them!

Here’s a potential promise…

Future Prince?

This potential prince sat patiently near a man-made pond, posing for me, as I was trying to get just the right angle for the shot by hanging out over the pond. Luckily, I didn’t lose my balance!

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Promise

Promise is ours!

Welcome to Week 112 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Your posts on last week’s theme were fantastic, so I had to come up with another inspiring theme!  While looking through some of my images, I found some that showed a bit of promise, so I picked one for this week’s theme of Promise!

As always, your creativity is the only limit to the directions, in which you can take the theme.  I’m curious to see your interpretations of what holds promise and might be so full of promise that you just have to share it!

Here’s a bit of that promise that I saw…

Morning’s Promise

I came across this scene during my daily commute, a number of years ago.  The promise of the sun rising to bring in a day filled with possibilities, to be harvested.  Carpe diem!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • 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 looking forward to seeing what might ring true in your posts!
