The 25 Days of Christmas: 11. hope

The antithesis of…

Believe it or not this little gem was found written beside the front door of THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET!

I would love to know the backstory. For now I will have to imagine some sort of elaborate suspense/horror story happening right across the road. We should be in a movie.


The following photo was taken approximately 1 minute after the first. Not more than 20 metres away.


There is still hope.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

As a final comment on growth I wanted to highlight myself. I started taking photos in May with my first photo challenge. I have been taking and blogging photos everyday in the last 3 and a half months to try to improve. The first photo I took was using the prompt peace. Here it is in all its glory.

Look at that photographic genius! haha

Here are a couple I took the other day with the same iphone.

They might not be perfect, but in my opinion they definitely show growth.

G is for graffiti

I drive past this old abandoned shed weekly. It is in a rural setting and is so out of place. The colour is what draws me to it. I have been meaning to stop and take a photo of it for ages and G was the perfect excuse.

I was also thinking about the WordPress weekly photo challenge theme of growth. In an odd way the graffiti has contributed to the growth of the shed it adorns. It is clearly abandoned. Walls are falling down, the structure is decaying and left to itself it would fall down and eventually be forgotten. The graffiti has drawn the attention of hundreds if not thousands of passing motorists to it in effect giving it new life, a chance to become something…else.

I consider that to be growth. As much spiritual evolution as a building is capable of.
