Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

Symbolism is uniquely human. We use symbols to represent intangible things like our beliefs and emotions, and to convert the abstract into something understandable. We may also use symbols to simplify and convey information.

Photography is often the same; an image illustrates a single moment in time, or captures an object in perpetuity. Much like symbols, photographs, too, may conjure vivid memories and mean a wide range of things to different people.

My contribution is this photograph of pansies we plant each autumn as they enjoy the cooler temperatures of Australian autumn and winter.  They are a symbol of friendship and remind me of the many friends that have blessed my journey through life, those friends who are travelling alongside me now and the wonder of good friends I have yet to meet.

Pansies are for Friendship
