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
