Whenever we come across a dead tree, my husband loves to take photos of it. I have to admit that I’ve come admire the stark beauty of dead and dying plant life (yes, I know that’s an oxymoron). It can add startling contrast in the midst of life. It can accentuate a bleak landscape. In a forest, it is also a sign of the cycle of life. As the old trees and plants die, they decay and enrich the ground so that new life can thrive.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT INCLUDES DEAD OR DYING PLANTS.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
