Weekly Photo Challenge – Renewal

Renewal.  The act or process of rebirth, regrowth or being renewed.  A Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal can mean so much to so many people and interpreted in a multitude of ideas and images.

It’s a very wide spectrum of photographic thoughts for one concept–renewal.  Here is my photo essay on renewal with some thoughts from others:

Spiritual Renewal

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.” Audrey Hepburn, actress, dancer and goodwill ambassador

Seasonal Renewal

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope. Wendell Berry

“I think all happiness depends on the energy to assume the mask of some other life, on a re-birth as something not one’s self.”  W.B. Yeats

  13. Wow, where did you find that quote from Yeats? Mind if I steal it for my book, or at least to follow one of my writing prompts: “Become the Other?” Your site has a really nice balance of photographs and text. And thanks for stopping by my blog! – Cheryl
