Pure

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of something pure — it can be a person, an object, or a moment.

“Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity.

The sky is clear, the air is clean, and a small girl plucks dandelions from a field to make a tiny bouquet. The purity of the afternoon is absolute: from the crystalline blue of the sky, down to the cottony, sunlit curls upon the child’s head. Nothing exists outside of this overgrown meadow, where wildlife thrives, and red thistle and dandelions flourish. And a tiny little girl, pure of heart and intention, picks golden flowers for her mom.

This photo was taken several years ago now, but I can still recall this perfect day. I love finding beauty in the mundane, and purity in the midst of our chaotic, over-connected world. For this week’s challenge, share a photo of something pure — it can be a person, an object, or a moment. “Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity. We can’t wait to see your interpretation.
