Endurance Illustrated Photographically



The WordPress weekly photo challenge for September 19, 2014, is endurance—to show what endurance means to me. I can best do this by photographing examples of others who demonstrate what endurance is.

The hands of my late elderly aunt, Nyllis Gardner (Cape Cod, Massachusetts), were so crippled by arthritis I wondered how she could hold a spoon to eat. Yet she endured pain, struggling to hand-stitch many Barbie doll clothes that were sold at her church bazaar. She allowed me to photograph her hands during one of my visits.

Nature, too, can endure. It may be mid-September but some blooms refuse to accept that their season is done. There are yellow blooms on a forsythia bush near my local post office, and four crocus are blooming under my apple tree. And my morning glories produced their first blooms on September 14.
