How Does One Photograph ‘Forgiveness’?

While the dictionary definition of ‘forgiveness’ is rather simple to understand the actual act is very complicated. Even without adding a religious context it evokes multiple emotional responses and strongly associates itself with many other words. In short, this is a complex concept to photograph! I guess that’s why I call this a weekly photo “challenge”. πŸ˜‰

I decided to try and convey some of the emotional responses and words that can be associated with the word ‘forgiveness’ but I’m leaving it up to you to discover those meanings within the photos themselves. And in the end, if I’ve done a horrible job of relating these images to the challenge then my hope is that you at least find them interesting to scroll through. πŸ™‚

A big thanks to Lisa for submitting ‘forgiveness’ as a challenge – you pushed me hard with this one (in a good way).

Okay, drawing out the next challenge as I type – (yes, I can do both at once) – ready?
