Camera Lucida: Divergent

Each week Julia at My Red Page has a Photo Challenge called Camera Lucida. with a theme  She invited me to participate. Now I have never been one for group participation in activities, but the color RED has always been the color of the women in my family and I do believe in supporting those women and those brave souls who speak and create out loud to the world on  their very own websites, so I showed up …and Camera Lucida has turned out to be such an inspiration to me and I actually anticipate to see what Julia comes up with next as a topic.

I am  a regular contributor to Camera Lucida, so imagine my frustration when this week’s challenge had me completely stumped. I’d spent a big chunk of time creating my very first Gallery  of newest photos this week. But nothing that said Divergent to me. I went to Julia’s website this morning with the intention of commenting that I was not posting this week, but would visit all of the others who had contributed because their photos are always stellar. In milliseconds of seeing “The Pencil Is Red” , a different post Julia  had done about something unrelated except for the color red, flashed.    “Divergent”would in fact be:


The definition of divergent is things that move in different directions or that are far apart from each other.

Opposites, dissimilar, different, contradictory, revers

  3. Just getting ready to tell you I was unable to post Divergent to inLinkz and was unable to. Second time. I’ll give the #cameraLucida a try. Such a constant ever learning curve for this old lady! No worries though. It is all good.
