Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

DSCN1917_edited-2The bud feels stress. The bloom feels exhilaration. The flower feels wonder.

This week’s photo challenge is “between”. See other interpretations of “between” here.

Capture something in the middle of two things. It can be a person or object, or simply the space in between. It can also be a feeling or relationship — a bond that connects people, or a space that separates. This word might also reflect a choice you need to make — the challenge of choosing one thing over another — or any kind of transition, from childhood to adulthood, single life to married life, day to night.

    1. Oh thank you Eliza! I found this challenge extremely challenging. I searched through so many pictures, and none worked, so I tried again this morning. The mind is weighing, weighing, weighing. It feels so heavy and difficult. And intuition passes lightly through and drops a response. It is indeed wondrous, the difference between the two paths.

    1. Thank you! Most times I’m the bud. Sometimes I’m the bloom. On rare occasions I’m the flower.

  3. You really captured something in between. I have never seen anything like it. It’s such an interesting photo with lovely colours – almost monochromatic – and soft and subtle light. Very nice.

    1. Thank you! This plant feels so fresh, itmakes me want to cook with it. But if my recollection is correct, I think there were warnings on this plant.

    1. I wish I’d captured the little sign that says what kind of plant it is, so I could look it up. But, it looked very much like a giant green onion, about 4′ or 5′ tall! I wonder also – a giant agapanthus?
