Weekly Photo Challenge … from between

June 24, 2014

Each week, watching out for the weekly photo challenge is a bitter/sweet moment.  The prompt always seems more difficult than the previous week. Although this seems a little melodramatic after a day or two of mild trepidation, and tearing out of what little hair I have remaining, I do get a good idea.  Then I can relax for the rest of the week.    

This week, I did have a couple of ideas but again my choice came out of the blue.  Or rather from between the folds of a map used many years ago during a family holiday.  A buttercup; unceremoniously poked into a safe place and sadly never to be looked at again; until now.

It was not carefully preserved; so not a particularly attractive sight and it did not survive long.  

I had been rummaging among the old maps looking for collage materials to use that evening. Sacrilege! I hear the map lovers cry.  Not finding exactly what I wanted, I thought the tiny flower might suffice but it didn’t make the journey to the art class.

    poignant left between the leaves

    I thought the leaves were very well preserved. I used to preserve flowers clipped in between books when I was a kid, something I did to pass the time. Pressed flowers and leaves, in between the moments of time. Very creative interpretation of this week’s theme 🙂
