Fresh

For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses something fresh.

Fresh: a photo of frangipani leis in Kauai, Hawaii, by Jen Hooks.

In the Northern Hemisphere, spring is beginning to slowly appear, and many of us whose creativity was dampened by the cold and drear of winter days are beginning to reawaken. The freshness of spring is a powerful catalyst to get shutterbugs outdoors and get
shooting.

People living in the Southern Hemisphere are welcoming the early days of autumn, which brings with it a different kind of freshness. I lived in the Carolinas for almost a decade, and I can remember the first autumn days after oppressively hot summers, and feeling like I could finally breathe again. The crispness of the air in the fall also brings about a rebirth of creativity for me. I love both of the transitional seasons.

For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses something fresh. This topic is particularly wide open to interpretation; you might take a macro shot of blades of green grass peeking through melting snow, or the condensation on a glass filled with mojito, made with freshly-squeezed limes. Maybe the sweet face of a puppy, or a landscape at sunrise, the fresh start of a new day. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

My photo was taken early this month in Kauai, Hawaii, at a seaside luau. I love the vibrance and purity of the colors, the velvety texture of the flowers, and the fact that you can see bare toes peeping out at the bottom. To me, it is the essence of fresh.

  1. So, happy for Spring to be here. Up, in the northern hemisphere I am looking forward to there being warm weather and flowers. Happy Spring! Love the photo by the way, I am going to Hawaii in a couple of months. The picture of the flowers you posted made Hawaii feel a whole lot closer.

  2. for this week’s challenge, i’m sharing pictures i took inside the market in the old neighborhood of plaka in athens. it’s an interesting place to visit. however, if you find them disgusting, i suggest that you stop right there. don’t go any further to the dirty, smelly, and bloody wet section where you’d see carcasses cut to pieces. although it would provide quite an experience to the adventurous, you’d likely find it totally out of your comfort zone.
