Have you joined the Twelve Photos Facebook Group yet? This is an open group who share one photo a month that represents a word. The word for January is Beginning.
I haven’t submitted my photo yet, but I have the idea I want to share and I am just waiting for the moment to occur. In the meantime I was reminded by the photo that accompanies this post, that every beginning is also an ending.
The photo shows the new Lifeboat station at the end of Mumble Pier. I was particularly struck how that every time the lifeboat descends to the water it is a beginning of a rescue. That the entrance to the sea is also an exit from dry land is immediately apparent. But I also reflected upon the way that the lifeboat’s journey was both a successful ending for those rescued (hopefully) and then a beginning. For any major event in our life is kind of a marker for change. A movement from before the event, to after the event.
This is the theme that the photo I intend to create will follow. Every beginning is also an ending and in between is a moment when the world shifted. I am really looking forward to seeing your photos on this theme and if you haven’t yet submitted, don’t panic there are still 23 days to go!
