weekly photo challenge: future tense
Friday, March 22: In today’s Weekly Photo Challenge, we’re challenged to grab an image from our world that holds the promise or portent of the future. It could be:
- As everyday as the experience of waiting for a bus or train.
- As abstract as something that symbolizes your ambitions or hopes for the future.
- A note, prayer or promise jotted on a napkin or cross-stitched with exquisite tenderness.
- The promise or portent of spring, sunrise, or storm in nature.
- A street candid of someone nervously waiting on their date to arrive.
- A piano falling from a third storey flat into the oncoming path of an adorable kitten. Or any other action about to take place.
- Anything that involves the present and a hint of the future all in one frame.
I can’t resist posting my own pictures of Ema, the prayers and wishes penned and hung in the grounds of Shinto shrines.
Here are the Korean versions of Ema.
Here’s me with some older Korean ladies waiting for the bus to take me to the Boseong Tea Plantations.
And firing up hot air balloons in Cappadocia, Turkey for a sunrise balloon ride.
And finally, Buddhist prayer flags in Kathmandu, Nepal.
