Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

         Wordpress Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Photo by Myra Lambino

it’s a crab… crawling out of the cracks… of a rock…in her garden in spring, says Myra. but i’m on certiorari   mode and think  this should be a spider because … how can a baby red crab be nimbly clambering in the middle of Los Angeles city? but…  it’s her garden, she saw it,  and a hundred million miracles happen everyday in spring — it’s a crab that survived winter, cement streets, and giant, rubber tires whizzing by. This is our post for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal.

“The insect-youth are on the wing,

  Eager to taste the honied spring

  And float amid the liquid noon:

  Some lightly o’er the current skim,”          

                                        – Thomas Gray xxx

Here’s      the model photo from     Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal, shot by Cheri Lucas, who wrote: ” Renewal. This word conjures a variety of images, from bright blossoms to meditating monks. When I think of “renewal,” I think of starting a new job, arriving in a new city that’s ripe for exploration, walking through a new apartment with white walls, and taking a hot shower after a challenging day. I also recall a trip several years ago to the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon, which is where I took the photograph above. This lone pink flower amongst lily pads makes me feel renewed, fresh, and ready for what’s to come.

      “I think of beginnings. Life. Opportunity. What images does Renewal conjure for you? Get creative. Think beyond the usual images (a sunrise, a birth). We want to see what else you can come up with.”
