Weekly Photo Challenge: Close


This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is CLOSE. My go-to desk dictionary, Webster’s NewWorld Dictionary, which I acquired long before the end of the last century, lists over 50 definitions for close or closed, not including idiomatic expressions.

Sometimes close can mean nearby, in proximity to another object:

Two hearts, close as if one

Closer Objects

That nearness can mean a “close up” if your camera is ready:

Close-Up: Butterfly

Close-Up: Dandelion

Sometimes close means the opposite of open, as in No Entrance! No Admittance! Go Away!

Closed: Do Not Enter

No admittance!

Closed can refer to something that has been ended, usually permanently:

Stairway along WestSide Highway: Permanently Closed.

But being closed may only mean that something hasn’t opened yet:

Still closed; soon to open.

Close can refer to the end of the day:

Doors closed at the close of day

Sometimes being close matters:

Sometimes you’re close. Sometimes you’re not.

Sometimes being close means everything.

Close — the bride and her father

About Anne Camille

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them. I am a photographer, a reader, a writer, a thinker, a dreamer. Mostly you'll see the photographer here, but signs of the others shine through every now and again.

    Nice interpretation of all the possible meanings, it was a bit vague this week but you conquered that well :)

      Sometimes I find the ones that require a lot of interpretation to be the most fun — although they vex me for a bit until I get an idea on how to approach them.

        Yes I understand, I have only recently started participating in the challenges, but I am enjoying it.
