At first glance, this may just look like a photo of a bridge. Which is an astute observation, because it is a photo of a bridge. Good call!

Of course, for me, it’s not just a photo of a bridge — it means something more.

I took this photo driving over the Ben Franklin Bridge between New Jersey and Pennsylvania as my husband and I headed to Philadelphia for a weekend away, a weekend planned to celebrate our successful navigation of some big life shifts.

When I look at this photo, I don’t think, “Huh, that’s a bridge.” I think, “We did it!”

This week, we want to see photos that represent change. Depending on where in the world you are, this could be a winter landscape blossoming to spring, or vice versa. It could be a picture of a place you’ve left behind and hope never to return to, a photo of a place you hope to reach, or a snapshot of where you currently stand in a journey. Perhaps you’ll capture your child on the cusp of a developmental milestone, or the sun just about to flip the switch between night and day.

As we crossed the bridge, a number of changes took place:

  • We changed from being in New Jersey (the king of states) to being in Pennsylvania (the runner-up of states).
  • We changed from being in a familiar, comfortable location to a being in a (sort-of) foreign one.
  • We changed from being on weekday, work life time to weekend, celebration time.
  • We cemented the changes from our old life to the new.

We’re excited to see the purely literal, the totally figurative, and everything in between.

  1. Change is the only constant in life. Even my face has had it’s changes. Places keep changing, sometimes from bad to worse, and we call it deterioration or dilapidation. At other times from good to better and that’s improvement or progress.
    Let’s always contribute towards positive change so that the world would be a better place. I’m still thinking in words… Aaahhh! :)

  2. Hi all, my post http://bit.ly/12Rk1Nd named “Transitions” because we’re experimenting with photos that encourage navigation or finding your own path (much like change).. since you guys know photos, I’d love to get your response to the app and hopefully you can help me get some content?
