Photo Challenge Remnants

“All life is bound to a simple truth… that time goes on, that each person’s life begins a tale, a tale that will either end in memory or in legend.” ― M.J. Chrisman

A mountain of dark and frozen snow is the only blot on the landscape reminding passersby that the dreaded snows of winter will soon become mere memories. Buds on the trees welcome spring’s eventual return. 

Life is somewhat akin to a quilting bee in which the overall pattern and color scheme is composed of bygone experiences skilfully and meticulously woven  to produce a present configuration that is momentarily dominated by loose threads and hues of changing life experiences leading to an unknown future motif.

Seasons change and as time marches forward the remnants of one season is slowly and irrevocably managed by the next one.

Mountains of snow melt as spring approaches. The green leaves of the spring and summer months are eventually replaced by colorful displays of multi colored autumn leaves. And yes, the return of the winter snow camouflages the world with its crystalline canopy of white.

Broken hearts, antique furniture, faded photographs from a bygone age are all memorabilia that evoke strong emotional responses from us. They are remnants and at times emotional anchors to things that once were.

REMNANTS is this week’s photo challenge. Susan and I invite you to rummage through your private and perhaps archived picture collection and tell us your personal story behind them.

To take part: Write a new post and include our name (Weekly Prompts) plus the challenge title, highlight the challenge and create a pingback by copying the link above. If unsure, check our menu bar and read our recently updated How To page.

Please note: Pingbacks for all challenges are displayed at the bottom of the page where you would normally see the comments and in order for the pingbacks to be easily spotted and displayed correctly, normal comments on challenge pages are disabled.

Your comments are warmly welcome on the Talk-to-Us page.

For the next three weeks my partner and blogging associate Susan will be away on a well deserved vacation. We wish her all the best and hope she has a rejuvenating and relaxing time. She will be missed and we all wish her a safe return to Weekly Prompts. – gc
