Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Its been awhile since I entered a post for the Weekly Photo Challenge and I must admit I had a hard time interpreting this week’s challenge.  I am not sure how I understand the word infinity or whether my understanding is enough to interpret it visually.  According to Collins English Dictionary, Infinity is the state or quality of being infinite, an endless time, space and quantity.

I only know the word as associated with everlasting love as symbolized by the infinity necklace resembling a figure of eight.  But it is too cliché if I am going to interpret this one.

As always, I want to be different and so  I googled how other famous writers use the word infinity.  I found a number of quotes and put them together into a poetry (sort of!).  I looked at my collection of photos and found the ones that actually tell a story…almost related to the quotes I compiled.

All photos were taken by me at Cape Town in South Africa…truly my most memorable and happiest trip!!!

Here goes….enjoy!!

  3. Beautiful pictures 🙂

  4. I am a huge fan of quotes…and your pictures are stunning! As a photographer, you are the real thing. I am trying to learn to take pictures with my Sony Cybershot Point and Shoot, but when I see photos like yours, with such great color, composition, angles, and subject matter, I realize how far I have to go.

    • Thanks Rob…I started with point and shoot as well so don’t be discouraged….I only do photography when I am traveling and I am blessed to have seen amazing places which helps a lot in creating outstanding photos ….even for amateur photographers like myself 🙂 Thanks for dropping by….
