Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

10 Nov

Renewal… replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate or restore…
This week’s photo challenge was indeed a mental test, for me anyway. I considered a photograph of me in a warm tub of bubbles recharging my chakra with a glass of champagne but no such photo exits. I know that to be true because I rarely bathe and my chakra eloped with a bottle of Brut one dead winter night many Decembers’ ago.
There are a few photos of hubby napping in his recliner that seemed fitting but he wasn’t too fond of the idea. It’s not that I caught him drooling and snores can’t be heard in a snapshot. I think he’s concerned people will think he is Salman Rushdie and send a rocket into our living room. That or ask him for an autograph. He would prefer the rocket.
So with the first two options off of the table I mulled over the theme again.
Renewal… replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate or restore…
My thoughts continually returned to Spring, the natural season of renewal. To new blooms and young butterflies, abandoned cocoons and Cicada’s emerging. So I rummaged through my jump drives, blew off the digital dust and here you have it. My take on this week’s photo challenge: renewal.

    I like the idea of the warm tub of bubbles with a bottle of champagne!! Nice photos, especially that scary looking creature. Is that a fly?

      Thanks and that insect is a Cicada. They crawl out of the ground anchor on something and emerge from their shell. They do look scary.

        Oh, yes, I should have recognized a cicada! I’ve seen them many times before in Virginia!

      Thank you- I was afraid it was to bright but liked that it was contrast to the dark Cicada. :)
