Welcome to the weekly showcase of art made from photographs, aka, Photo Art Friday! If you are a new visitor to our virtual photo art gallery, you can read the guidelines for participation here.
Any photo art is welcome in our gallery, but each week I provide an optional prompt. This week's prompt is "container(s)". Can't wait to see all the creative interpretations you've fashioned with this prompt!
Here are two pieces of photo art that feature containers:
To give the container garden photograph a more artsy feel, I cropped, saturated, sharpened it, and added a touch of the PSE filter "poster edges".
Of course, the most precious container of all is the heart. Do you ever consider the contents you carry in your heart? Are there resentments, grievances, griefs, hurts, disappointments, anger housed there that are no longer relevant and/or helpful? Is it time to release some of the things the container of your heart has been carrying?
It's never too soon to stop holding and nursing old, long-since-past trauma and grievances. They weigh us down and do both symbolic and literal damage to mind, body and spirit. (Sometimes we can benefit from professional help as we release the wounds of the past from our heart.) Make a conscious effort to reserve your heart as a container for delight, joy, love, appreciation and gratitude. It's a healing choice to release old grief and grievances from your heart space - and no one can prevent you from making such a healthy choice, but you.
I've decided to take a break from Photo Art Friday for the next two Fridays. It will be back on Friday, September 7th. I'll post a reminder and a prompt earlier that week.
