Let me know which you prefer and why.
Beyond is a word of various layers. It can harbor a sinister description or level joy or bring skepticism. As WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge’s theme this descriptor is deceptive along with its spunk.
In the Lens section are my entries, which are two divergent interpretations. The first image was taken on a walk through the University of Delaware’s campus, which is inviting in its sway between traditional and contemporary architecture. The bevy of young girls were prancing through the maze of sideways that lead to a cluster of buildings. As they peeked inside the lower windows of the art building, I wondered if their curiosity was satisfied. What was beyond the darken windows? Could they decipher the objects inside?
The questioning is part of the charm of beyond. What transpires in the barely seen, the unknown, the distant?
I pass the scene in photograph two almost daily. Often I have thought to record the decay in the tree. Last week was sufficient light to see nature’s demise, and, at the same time, see the bright green future that lives beyond.
“What is beyond” does not have to be off in never-never land to fulfill its meaning. Quite easily it can be right before us, acknowledging its possibilities.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
